    about a scanner.

    Alright I'm about to buy this Scanner http://www.amazon.co.uk/CanoScan-LiD.../dp/B000I538O2, and I was wondering if it would OK for me to Scan A3 paper on it, It's obviously not big enough to fit the entire paper on it, but scanning it once or twice or somethin'.

    You can scan it in chunks and piece it together in PS but that's a hassle. I'd be inclined to just work at A4 myself but then I sketch small.

    Those are generally very good scanners for the price btw.

    yeah, piecing it together is a major hassle. Sketch small.

    Also, I've just had recent issues with that brand of scanner, not because it's a bad scanner, but because Canon (and almost all the others) don't make drivers for 64 bit operating systems. Work around is using VueScan, which works nicely.
