ScanGear in Thai

This is why I cannot de-screen the pictures I scan from books and magazines. The user interface for my Canon MP610 all-in-one scanner / printer is in Thai and I do not know how to change it.

I purchased my old Sony laptop and it was, of course, all English Windows XP. I purchased the printer in Thailand, but when I installed the software everything came up in English. No problem.

When I received the new Compaq Presario CQ40 it had the Thai version of Windows XP. I set everything up so the user interface is in English (United Kingdom).

There’s another tool called WIA that is English. But it is so simple that I don’t think it supports de-screening.

Note: there are ways of de-screening pictures in “post” using Photoshop. I was too lazy to research them when I scanned the Fortune Magazine article.
