How to scan photo to save on computer ?


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Pictures to scan
  • Computer
  • Scanner
  1. Step 1 ** Prep your photos **

    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.
  2. Step 2 ** 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!
  3. Step 3 ** 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.
Hope it will help you :)

HP Photosmart C4180 scanner


Unfortunately Vista has problems with many printers. (Or maybe I should say many printers have trouble with Vista.)

HP has a work around that allows you to scan without using the Scan button. Go to:

C4180 Scan Work Around

They give you 2 options to scan using programs on your system

Thanks for using Fixya.

My Visioneer 8650 flatbed scanner with auto document feed gives a message when I try to scan a document, telling me to move the switch on the bottom from the "locked" to "unlocked" position. The lock is...


Actually a very common problem. Try the following:
1. Power down then re-power up the scanner.
2. Try slightly moving scanner. Sometimes a small change works to fix.
3. Change one of your scan setting to flatbed scan (not adf). Do a test scan under this setting. This will usually kick start scanner unit to unlock.
4. Last resort, by does also work...give it a medium slap on the side, sometimes unjams the scanner light.
5. Super last resort, power down over night, it almost always works the next day. (could be that lock up is heat related to scan lamp, dont know but just a guess).
Excellent scanner, so worth the effort to try these fixes.
