Even though NAPS2 was designed to be a pdf scanner, it also has the ability to save individual scans as images. Even more importantly, because each scanned page is basically an image, you can also edit each page as an image by double clicking on it, where you get editing options like crop and rotate, in addition to the ones I mentioned earlier. This is pretty handy if you're scanning something like a manual that has different sized pages, or is printed on large sheets and folded into a box so that you have to scan it in sections,\footnote{Every piece of furniture I've ever assembled has instructions like this, but I've run into quite a few manuals that are miniature versions of this, like the earbuds I wear on my daily walk.} or a package that has care instructions.
And if you're wondering why I'm blathering on about manuals, it's because I do keep them. For years, I kept them all in a large three ring binder filled with page protectors that I could slip them into. It was big and awkward, and don't dare tip it the wrong way, or you have manuals all over the floor.

At some point, I realized that most manuals are available in convenient pdf form from the manufacturer's website, so I started just downloading those, making sure the pdf was identical (or identical \textit{enough}) to the original, and then tossing the original in the recycling.

\paragraph{Summary:} In short, NAPS2 is everything I need in a document scanner. It gives me some of the editing features of GIMP, has a simple interface to use (you can create different profile for each kind of scanning you you) and it just plain works. I recommend it.
