When trying to scan three photos at once the scanner copies them as one picture instead of three separate photos. It has not always done this but I do not know how to adjust any settings to ensure that it will scan the pictures as separate photos.
Assuming you're using the Epson Scan software, select Home or Professional mode and click Preview. When the preview image appears, draw a marquee around each of the three photos. (Note that as you draw each marquee the number beneath the little image of a marquee - the white square with the dotted line around it - increases.) After drawing your marquees, click the All button, then click Scan. The scanner should make three separate passes in succession, producing three separate images.

What we're going to do here is take all your photos and put them onto one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper.
So take some tape and put it on the BACK of a photo. Then put that photo on the 8 1/2 x 11. You want to do it on the back so it won't ruin your original.
Then repeat this for the other photos you've got. And make sure you leave some space between the photos. This is so they don't get stuck together or overlap.
If you have lots and lots of photos that won't fit on one page, then use multiple pages to hold them. In other word, put as many as you can on a page.
** Preparing to scan**
Now that you've got your photos on an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper, it's time to put it onto the scanner. And be careful when holding the paper so your photos don't all fall off.
Now carefully lay the paper with the photos facing DOWN on the glass of your scanner. And it doesn't matter if you're using a flatbed scanner or one of those combo printer/scanner/fax machines.
TIP #1: I suggest making sure your glass is clean and free of streaks beforehand. Otherwise, you may see lines or distortions when the photos are scanned.
TIP #2: Do NOT feed the paper through the sheet feeder if you have one. This may jam the feeder or damange your photos. So make sure you only lay the paper on the glass!
** Ready to scan **
The only thing left to do now is actually scan your photos. Now depending on your scanner software, you may be able to scan a specific area.
In other words, many scanning software programs allow you to select the region or area of the paper you want to scan. If so, then I suggest you use this to crop your image around a specific picture. This will make the process easier.
When you've done this, scan it! Once it's on your computer, you can edit it to make it ligher, sharper, etc. Or save it as is. Then you'd repeat this process for the next picture.
If your software won't allow you to scan a specific area, then you'll need to scan the entire page. Do it! Once the image is on your computer, then you can use editing software to copy a specific portion to a new file. This is what you'll need to do to get individual photos.
As an alternative, you could crop the one you just scanned and then save it. Then rescan the whole page again and crop it to the next picture. Both ways work the same, so is your choice which way to go.
Here are some instructions from the Lexmark X63 which was similar to the X125.
The Lexmark X63 uses a sheet fed scanner, intended to scan 8 1/2 x11 inch paper.
To scan a document between 5 1/2 inches and 8 3/4 inches wide, center the document between the paper feed guides leading into the scanner and make sure the document is held straight,. Do not bend the document as it is fed into the scanner.
To scan photos or pictures that are 5 1/2 inches wide or smaller, you will need to use a flatbed scanner, or "mat" the image into a regular letter-size paper and scan the entire page. When the scan process is complete, crop out the picture using the AUTO CROP option in the Scan and Copy Control program or the photo-editing software.
try checking if you have completely installed all the drivers for your
printer. scanning and copying dont usually needs drivers because you
can do that even without a computer. but scanning requires your scanner
to be read by your pc. try checking for the scanner driver from the cd
that came from your printer.
thats very easy, i believe so ur trying to scan from the printer itself becoz that happens if u try to scan from the printer itself, instead of that use the solution center software.
if u have installed the complete software which was provided by hp, u will a icon on ur desktop called solution center, click on that and click on the scan document button on it and u get a pop window in that select the file type as PDF and click on scan at the bottom of the window and once it completes the scan, it will give a message do want to scan another page, click yes and go ahead with that........
I don't have a Mac, so not entirely exact on your solution. But, I do have a suggestion to try -
if you use a scanner, you probably have a photo editing software of some kind (like Photo Shop, Paint Shop Pro, etc etc). Within that program, there is an option to obtain the image from a scanner. You should be able to use that function instead. I know that with my WinXP, I could import from the scanner in Paint Shop Pro MUCH easier than trying to use the actual HP buttons on the 1315.
Please note that the 1315 will also only scan flat items well. If it is 3D, like jewelry or oddly shaped objects, you'll only get fuzzy-edged pictures. The 1315 has no depth perception, no matter what setting combination you use. Not HP's finest moment, for sure. I had this printer for a month or two before I was fed up, and went back to a separate printer and scanner! : /
Configure your scan buttons in the bottom right corner of your screen (when you click on the scan icon in taskbar). This will help you to go back where you want to be. You may find it easier to use XP's inbuilt scanning facility instead or scan via Photoshop.
