I want to be able to scan photos on to facebook but dont know how


The Lexmark X2670 printer does not have the capability of scanning photos directly to Facebook. However, you can scan your photos to your computer and save the scanned file. Then post the saved file to your Facebook account.
  1. Open the top cover, and then load an original document facedown on the scanner glass.
  2. Close the top cover to avoid dark edges on the scanned image.
  3. Make sure that the printer is connected to a computer, and that both the printer and the computer are on.
  4. From the printer control panel, press the Scan button.
  5. Follow the instructions on the computer screen.
After saving the file, open your Facebook account and post your saved photos.

I want to save the scan to the computer. What do I have to do?


HI, If you have Photo shop Elements, go to File then Import and look up you scanner from the list. If you are scanning from the scanner, it must see your computer to save to a file you created.
I use Photo shop, I've never scanned from the scanner onto the computer.



Take care...

How to scan documents and save them as jpg Format as default instead of tiff?


On some copiers, there is an option to scan as JPG. Press the Scanner function key on the left, and look for a button on the screen that says something like "Scan as file type." Press this button, and if that copier can scan JPG files, you should see the option there. Otherwise you might have to scan as TIFF files and then use a program like Microsoft Office Picture Manager to convert them to JPG images.

How to save scanned image from MX310 to computer?


Save the scanned image as a TIFF for archiving. TIFF files can beresaved and edited without compression loss, thus maintaining the highquality of an image. If you are enlarging an original 4 x 6 photo to8.5 x 11, save the scanned image as a TIFF at 600 dpi resolution. TIFFsprovide more detail than other file formats. Scanned images for emailand posting on the Web, which are to be viewed on a monitor, should besaved as JPEGs at 75 or 100 dpi. JPEGs generate smaller file sizes,which download faster on the Internet. Increase the resolution to 150or 300 dpi only if you are emailing a scanned JPEG image for therecipient to print. Save JPEGs at the maximum quality setting.

Lexmark 2600 scanning to MAC-no can do


Edward, I have this same problem. Were you able to solve it? Anyone, can you help? I have installed the drivers. When I connect the printer to my Mac, it launches ImageCapture and previews the scan fine. But I am unable to get the "scan" button to become active, adn there is no place to save the scan. If I click "save pdf to iphoto" it saves a pdf of the entire screen, rather than just the photo. Appears not to be Mac compatible for scanning purposes. Thank you for your help.
