How do you scan a document to send thru email


Hi
Once you have scanned a document it should appear on your computer as a picture file of some sort. This depends on the scanner. If you would like to send it via email you should open an email message and just simply click on where it says attach. You then choose the picture file that you wanted to scan and then wait for it to finish uploading the file. After this just simply send the email
Hope this helps!

Never tried, but would like to scan a picture from my Canon PIXMA MX310 all-in-one printer on to my computer. Would then like to transfer to facebook.. I'm pretty clueless with these things!


with the software that came with the printer installed, it will give you an option to perform a scan and then an option to save the scanned images to your hard drive/computer. once the pictures are saved, you may then edit them if you like before you proceed to upload them in facebook or to any other social network including sending them as e-mail attachments. hope this helps

Scan error try scan from computer or see documentation Press ok!!!


There are two ways to make your printer scan.

You can tell it to scan by pressing the keys on the front of the printer

OR

You can tell it to scan by using the software that came with your printer that is installed in your computer.

Your error message is saying that you are trying to scan by pressing the button on your printer and you have not set up this option yet. It is saying to check your documentation for instructions on how to set up this option if you wish to use it or try scanning using the software in your computer instead.

Go ahead and press "ok", if you have not done so already to clear the print que.

Then what I need to know from you is which option above do you want to use to initiate a scan from your printer?

In order to scan using the keys on your printer, you need to have an application (software) installed on your computer that it can recognize and send the image to. The printer will send the image to just about any graphics or photo editing software and others like Microsoft Word, or the photosmart software that came on your driver disk.

Make sure you have one or more of the above software titles installed on your computer, then press the "scan" button on the printer. The first time you set it up, you will see a message that says something similar to "gathering applications list" please wait. That means that your printer is connecting to your computer and checking for software that it recognizes and will scan to. Once a program is located it will then ask you where you want to send the image to and give you a list of acceptable applications it found installed. You use the up and down arrow keys on the printers keyboard to scroll the list until you see the one you wish to use then press the "ok" or "enter" key. Then just follow the prompts on your printers display and it will scan and send the image to your computer screen.

Using the keys on the printer is tougher to learn then scanning through the software on your pc.

If you want to try scanning by using the software, follow these instructions below:

Install the software that came with your printer on the driver installation disk. If you don't have the software or disk you can download a copy of the program from HP's website (http://www.hp.com). Look for downloads and then enter your printer make and model and follow the instructions to download and install on your pc.

Once the software is installed, turn on your printer and insert the document or photo you want to scan. Then open the program on your pc and click on the "scan" option (choose scan document, or scan picture or scan mixed ect.).

The pc will send the scan command to your printer, it will warm up and then send a copy of the image to your computer screen and ask if it is acceptable. If it is, choose "accept" and it will save a copy of the image file on your computer and stop. Double click on the image to open it for editing ect. Once you are happy with the finished product, click on "file" and then choose "save as" and pick a place that you will remember for easy locating then name the image and close it.

If you have any questions or encounter problems with the instructions above, just come back to this question and send me your concers through the "comment" section and I will help you solve this.



Click on the "Scan" option

Send scanned document too the computer


For this issue that you are having. You need to have the printer connected to your network. You need to have the manual for the printer setup. Once it is connected to your network. You will be assigning an IP address for the printer. You need to add it on your printer list using its ip address. Once connected, try to go to the printer itself. Look at the menu and look for the scan folder. The scan folder must contain the ip address of the computer you are sending the copy to and also the exact location of the folder it will be saved. Onced setup, all you have to do is to press the scan button then it will automatically save it to your preferred computer folder. Please be also noted about the file formats that your scanner will create. Usually, people uses jpg,jpeg but i recommend .Tiff cause it won't loose the quality of the scanned picture or document
