Whenever I scan a document or image into Photoshop and save it as .psd, I end up with a .bmp file of the same scanned document or image. And it's a really huge one too. I don't have problems opening the .psd file if the .bmp is deleted. But, why does this happen and how do I fix it? I'm using the latest trial version of Photoshop on Windows 10.
If we are talking about the WIA interface, then scanning is carried out directly through the driver, so the scanning profiles specified in the scanner software or the operating system (including specifying the saving format) do not work.The scanner simply receives the "scan" request and outputs the data in a "raw" format
To be honest, I very rarely get scans through Photoshop.
To be honest, I very rarely get scans through Photoshop and I can not unequivocally answer your question.Most scanners come with drivers and utilities that can change the file format on the fly, perform other pre-processing, and save scans to a specified folder.There are also excellent batch scanning programs like NAPS2
