Skanlite is a simple image scanning application, based on the KSane backend.[1] In KDE 4 Skanlite replaced Kooka of KDE 3 as default KDE scanning application.[2]

Skanlite is based on libksane, an interface provided by KDE for SANE libraries to control flat scanners.[3] It also works with networked scanners.[4]

Features[edit]

Skanlite can save images in the following formats:[4]

  • jpeg, jpg, png, bmp, ppm, xbm, xpm.

Skanlite can open a save dialog for every image scanned or save the images immediately in a specified directory with auto-generated names and format. T

If only portion of image is needed, user can first scan quick preview, select wanted area and then scan the wanted area in high quality.
