Wow! The answer is as lengthy (very much more actually) as the question is brief. There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of image viewing, converting, editing and management software packages in the etherworld to choose from. They range from very easy to complex, limited to exhaustively comprehensive, freeware to share/trialware, and from $0.00 to upwards of $1,000.00. Thankfully, the vast majority of the vast majority's needs are amply met with quite powerful and easy to use FREEWARE's.

There's always Microsoft "Paint". Available to every Windows user and found in your "Accessories" folder via the Start button. It can perform very rudimentary format (file-type .JPG, .BMP, etc.) convertions and editing.

But you'll quickly discover just doesn't come close to cutting the mustard. So, of all the freeware image related software's I've used and evaluated lo' these many years, there's one that I believe stands out. FastStone Image Viewer. It has and can do everything the vast majority of users need from an image software. It's easily quality enough to be sold, and be every bit worth it. But again, it's FREEware.

If you have a bit to spend, my equally enthusiastic for-purchase software I recommend is ACDSee Photo Manager (or Pro). It's my personal work-horse that I've heavily used for many years now. In my opinion, it beats all of its top competitors that even cost much more ... and I've used and/or have them all.

The above will get you steered in the right direction. Have fun exploring and playing.

TIP: Always make sure to have a backup copy of the original image you're about to edit (change), then save. Very often you'll discover that you wish you had it to go back to.

You'll need to use an image editing program like paint shop pro or photoshop...look through the software that came with the scanner or you can download shareware/freeware image editors from places like www.download.com or www.jumbo.com
on actually editing the image ach program will do things in slightly different ways so you would really need to follow the help section in the program itself

Scanning - When I scan a photo, how can I then access it. I have Picasa 3 software


When you scan a photo or document, the computer will need to save the new document somewhere on the system. You should determine (before the scanning process) where that document is being saved and what name it is being given.

Document is scanning upside down


Easiest way to confront this problem is to rotate the material being scanned.
If you find the image of the item is being inverted then simply rotate the material being scanned by 180 degrees.
Additionally most scanning software will have a ROTATE function where you can rotate the image of the scanned material, usually in 90 degree increments which can be useful for editing purposes. You may find this function under Edit or Image in your scanning software.
Good luck! William

After I scan text, I cannot put it into a Word document, edit, or anything. I have an Epson 2400. thanks I do not have the scanner directions.


In order to scan to word so a document is editable you need to use Optical Character Recognition Software (OCR). You can download free ocr software from www.simpleocr.com Use that software and then either export once scanned to Word or Save as a Word document in the OCR application.

How do i scan something and then have it shown on my computer so i can edit it ?


You will need to use Optical Character Recognition software such as Abbyy Fine Reader. Most scanners are supplied with software to allow this. You have to use the OCR software and then save or export to word. If you do not have any OCR software then free software can be downloaded from www.simpleocr.com

Scan a Document and Need to edit in Word 2007


Most of the time a scanner by default, will scan a document in a tif or other image file format. That means that the scanned image is actually very similar to a photograph. In order to edit the text, you first have to convert the image using something that's called OCR software. OCR is a process that the software uses to look at a scanned document image and determine what characters are on the page. It's not always very accurate but that depends on the quality of the scan and on the OCR software being used. You must have received some sort of scanning software with the scanner. Hopefully it containes some sort of OCR software. Some scanners will save you this extra image manipulation by having a setting that allows you to scan directly to a word document. Usually in that configuration, the OCR software automatically knows to convert the scanned document image in order to automate the process. But either way, you first have to install the manufacturer's software. Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Saving image in other format


Please refer to my post addressing your other related question:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1368024-edit_saved_image

You are not actually editing in any particular format per se. It's just that whatever editor you choose and use has the capability to be able to recognize and read in your target image [as well as be able to save the edited (changed) image to MANY other differing formats if desired (i.e., JPG > PNG, BMP > GIF, etc.). Whatever editor that is SHOULD be able to do this with at least ALL the major and most common formats, and many do, including those I recomended in my previously mentioned post.

Question about copying direct from scan to a Word document


Check if your Canon software creates a PDF image. A scanned image is a RASTER image, a series of dots, that 'appear' like text or drawing. You cannot use Ctrl-C or Ctrl-v. If the software creates a PDF file, you can cut & paste. Usr any good OCR (Optical Character recognition) software ad convert the raster image to editable text. Then you can cut & paste.

To upload scanned images to eBay, simply scan your your images first and save them as .jpg files.

Remember where you have saved them,
eg My Documents/ebayimages.
Make sure the files are not too large. If they are, you may have to resize them. Really no more than 75kB and less if you have a lot to upload for one listing. If the files are too large they will take too long to load for users with a slow internet connection.

Next. go to eBay, create your listing and click upload images. A window will open which will allow you to navigate to where you have saved your image. You can also edit the brightness and sharpness of you images in eBay.

Hope this helps...
