@Misty - And that's why knowledge is power. I have to learn more about cameras.

Oh, that's not a problem. I am using them, it's just that I was looking for a quicker way to solve the crop problem. But when the other user on another forum suggested zooming in and cropping that way, I now know what a huge mistake I made in the first 20 books I scanned. I'll just crop each of the 20 books' pages one by one. But from here on out, I will be using zoom to take the pictures the right way the first time thus eliminating the need for ANY post-processing. I'll just rotate them and combine the images into a PDF. Super simple. But I'm not looking forward to the next 4-5 days since it will consist of nothing but editing for at least 5 hours a day to finish the editing of the 20 books I scanned incorrectly.
The scanner I have is this: (I am considering selling it if anyone is interested...) http://www.diybookscanner.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=89&start=10
Misty, I have a question for you. I checked my camera's settings and my camera's user's guide. I was shooting using "Standard". That means the focal length is 35 - 560 mm and the shooting characteristics are "Enables shooting at zoom factors of up to 16x with digital and optical zoom combined."
So, should I use:
1. the above setting called "Standard"
2. the setting "Off" which reads focal length 35-140mm and shooting characteristics "Enables shooting without digital zoom" ?
