I want to "digitize" some paper records, personal, financial, medical, etc. For the most part the records are standard 8½x11-inch white paper with black print.
My OS is Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit. For occasional scanning I have been using Windows Fax and Scan, which has four output file formats: .bmp, .jpg, .png, and .tif. (Windows Fax and Scan defaults to .jpg for "documents.")
What file format would be best for digitizing records? Would a format other than one of these four be better?
