What could be easier than clicking on skanlite and then "scan",

the time. One step saved.

I just used Skanlite to scan a document.  All I can do is save the
image.  I cannot import directly into any app.  I'd have to import
the saved image.

Directly as in straight from Skanlite? I guess that's true. I
haven't felt it was an obstacle.

Gimp reads directly from Xsane. I don't know if it uses an
intermediate file, a pipe, or shared memory, no idea.

I'll have to try that.

If the wanted result is a pdf, xsane saves to PDF, IIRC.

I haven't tried, but if taken directly from the scanned, without
resizing and compressing, they always end up being huge.
