Opening images from files

If you have scanned a graph before, and you have it stored in image file, you can start a new ScanIt document from this image file simply by opening the image.

From the file menu, choose Open Image. If desired, select the correct file type. The following image files are supported:

Alternatively, you can open an image by dropping it on the ScanIt application if it is running, or dropping it on the icon of the ScanIt application when it isn't running.

Once you have opened an image, a new document window will appear in which the image is displayed.

Next you will need to set the axes.
