One type of commercially available image scanner scans a printed image across the short (8.5") dimension of a legal size sheet of paper (8.5" x 14"). The scanned information can be printed using the laser printer and paper feed mechanism found in a commercially available copier. In the copier, the laser prints lines extending along the long (14") dimension of the paper. The scan and print directions and paper travel during both scanning and printing are illustrated in Fig. 1.
