hi i scanned a document onto my pc i tried it first in ocr but it looked rubish. i was wondering is it posssible to scan it in another way and keep in its orignal stile & then edit it after.

In what way was it rubbish? Most scan applications have functions to alter brightness, contrast, clour, and even tones, and dots-per-inch/cm.

Your PC should have a 'Scan Manager' application - they're pretty standard these days - and this should help you through the process.
