In computing, an image scanner—often abbreviated to just scanner, although the term is ambiguous out of context (barcode scanner, CAT scanner etc.)—is a device that optically scans images, printed text, handwriting or an object and converts it to a digital image.

There are a few different kinds of scanners available and, as with printers, the one that’s right for you depends on how you intend to use it. The most common types are: flatbed scanners, sheetfed scanners, and portable scanners.

Flatbed Scanners

Flatbed scanners will take up some desktop space but are worth its value. Depending on its size, a flatbed scanner can fit standard or legal-sized documents, and the flexible cover allows you to scan large items such as books. With a flatbed scanner, you’ll have to scan one page at a time (unless it comes with an automatic document feeder).

Sheetfed Scanners

Sheetfed scanners are smaller than flatbed scanners; as the name implies, you feed a document or photo into the scanner's automatic document feeder, or ADF, rather than place it on top of the platen one photo or document at a time. If you’re only scanning documents, it may be a worthwhile trade, especially if you’ve got a lot of them since you can feed them in bunches.

Portable Scanners

Portable scanners are small enough to bring on the road. In fact, some are small enough to put in your pocket; pen scanners are just a bit bigger than fountain pens and can scan the text of a document line by line.. Since they’re not cheaper than flatbed scanners, they’re probably only useful if you are a student or a researcher.
