loadScanner = pyScanLib()
scanners = loadScanner.getScanners()
loadScanner.setScanner(scanners[0])

loadScanner.setDPI(300)
loadScanner.setScanArea(width=512,height=512) #(left,top,width,height)
loadScanner.setPixelType("color") #bw/gray/color

PIL = loadScanner.scan()
PIL.save("scanImage.jpg")
loadScanner.closeScanner() # unselect selected scanner in setScanners()
loadScanner.close() # Destory whole class
