Scanning Documents such as Photographs and Clippings (with the (Carrier) Sheet)

Using the optional Carrier Sheet or Photo Carrier Sheet allows you to scan documents that can be damaged quite easily such as photographs, or non-standard size documents that are difficult to load directly such as clippings.
