Hey smarter_mum,
When scanning photos with a scanner and having difficulties processing the photo's, it can be a number of problems.
1.) Make sure the Scanner's Ports are clean, blow into them and get any dust out.
2.) Make sure the Scanner's Ports are plugged in fine.
3.) Replug the scanner, and wait a couple minutes.

A nifty trick I found when Having problems such as this, is to Screenshot your photos.
What this means, if you don't already know, is if you can get the photo's to show up on your PC and just can't save them, just Hit the "prt sc" button on your keyboard, this stands for Print Screen, then open paint and hit CTRL + V, or Right-Click and Paste. This will enable you to save it in paint, and then just open it as a .JPG file. the PRT SC button is right above the Backspace button usually, and if your on a laptop, you will have to hit FN which is to the left of the spacebar, hold FN and hit prt sc.

Hope this helped - CA

My hp psc will not scan an object everything else seems to work how do i fix it


Double Click on HP Solution Center icon to open. The HP icon will be on your desktop or in your start menu. It is the icon that materializes after you use the CD to install your HP scanner or multifunction printer. (It may appear slightly different depending on the model and type of HP scanner or printer).
Place the document or photo on the glass platen in the proper corner. There is an arrow that illustrates proper placement in HP scanners and printers.
Click the settings button on the bottom of the HP Solution center screen. It appears as a wrench. This will assist in setting up your scanner or all-in-one HP printer to scan at the touch of a button. Follow the on-screen prompts for photos and documents. Then, scan by clicking the Scan Picture or Scan Document button as appropriate.
Select the proper choice once you scan, such as save to file (specify where) or email (You also can set up a folder ahead of time so you know where to find the document or photos once they are scanned). Often times the computer will create a default my scans folder and organize them by saving them by date and month scan.
Click scan and then wait for box to appear. You will see the document or photo being saved and the blue bar will display progress in the HP screen.
Save the file if the HP software has not already done this for you. Put it in a folder you create and give it a name you will remember.
Then click "Save"to finalize it. The document should be in the folder that you designated.
Repeat the process for multiple pages. Keep the HP Solution Center screen open until your scans are finished.

Scan images file size seems very large


That entirely depends on your scan settings. The resolution has a huge impact on file size - doubling the resolution from, say. 150dpi to 300dpi actually quadruples your file size. That being said, your scans are probably saved as BMPs. If you scan to Paint or a proprietary image editor (like Photoshop), then you can save in a compressed format like JPG or PNG and reduce the file size some more.

Bottom line - if you're scanning a full size (8.5x11) page, then less than 2MB per page is pretty decent, especially if the file is a BMP. If these are 4x6 photos, then it's still not bad if you're using a resolution like 300dpi. My digital camera takes photos at 5megapixels and the files are often 1-2MB each, and those are just photos.

Insignia digital photo frame won't recognize some .jpgs


When you save in Photoshop make sure you select "Baseline ("Standard") on the JPEG options when you save. That should fix the problem for you. It did the trick for My Kodak SV710 digital frame which wasn't displaying images I had edited in photoshop.
