Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

How do I delete scanned pictures once I have finished with them?

When I scan a picture and then try to drag it onto my desktop the software indicates that the picture must be saved. When I save the picture it then becomes impossible to delete it once I have finished with it.
My computer is an IMac and the printer is Canon MP210 All-in-One (but the software appears to apply to more than one model in the MP range.

    Can't delete old images in scanner. Easy enough to "clear" images once you've printed them, but if you don't the images are there when you bring up the mp160 scanner again and they build up. Doesn't seem any way to delete them.

It's not a big problem. When you save your image, the scanner driver keep a link with the file. To be able to delete the file, you will need to close the software, eventually to relaunch the finder. You're right, it's a little bit irritating

I need to scan something from printer to computer an don't know how to do it. Can you help me please?


Hi:
It's real easy, all you need to do is load the software that comes with your printer in your computer, once it's loaded. Put the picture facing down and go to your start button (left hand bottom side) click on it, go to programs, go to lexmark and click on Lexmark All-in-one Center. Once the window is open go to your right upper side and click on Preview Now. Your printer/scanner should be scanning the picture and this one will appear on the blank space, once it finished you can crop the picture as you desire and then click on the Scan Now button. That's it!
More easy: On the left hand side of your printer there are three buttons; power, copy and scan. Press Scan and the all in one Lexmark program will open and you will see the picture in your computer, crop it and press Scan.

I don't know how to scan and save in forlder, to be able to send them through e-mail. The printer was given to me without the manuel


The printer was given without a manual because Hp has all of a sudden decided to go green.

anyway if you look on your desktop you will see and icon called the hp solution centre.

Bear in mind that you will only see this software once you have installed the software with the disc that came to you.
Place a document on the scanner glass of your printer face down.
Open the solution centre and you'll have a button called scan picture or scan document click on whichever you want and then select the type of file you want the picture or document scanned as.
once done click on the ok button and the scanning will start.
If you need to scan another picture click on finish and the folder will popup where the scanned file is saved.
If you need to scan another picture or document into the same file at the top you have an option on the scanning window saying add another page click on that, once all the pics or documents are done click on finish and the folder to where the scanned files are saved will open up.
by default the scanning path for WINDOWS XP is in my documents under the folder called my scans.
in WINDOWS VISTA AND WINDOWS 7THE SCANNING PATH IS DOCUMENTS AND THEN A FOLDER CALLED MY SCANS

tell ya what copy and paste the links below and follow the steps and would appreciate four stars if you think I am helpful :)

Click "Scan" and then "OK" to see the scan preview.

    I am trying to scan a picture onto my computer


    1. Turn on your computer, wait for it to boot up, then turn on your printer.
    2. Double click on the " HP Photo Imaging Director " icon on your desktop, it was placed there
    when the printer was installed on your computer. A screen will appear which will show the
    scanning options of your printer. Do not make a selection at this time.
    3. Place your picture on the glass top scanning surface and lower the lid.
    4. Click on " Scan Picture " from the director screen.The scanner will make one pass and allow
    you to look at the result, it will then make another pass, completing your scanning operation.
    5. Your picture can be viewed on HP Photo Gallery and " My Pictures " folder.
    Have a Nice Day.

    When I try to scan from printer to computer I get 'scan error'. See documentation. I am trying to scan to a mac - does that matter?


    You need to use the grey cd to install the software onto your Mac if you have not already done so. If you don't have the Mac CD you can download the installation software and all drivers from HP here (select your operating system first).

    If you have installed it aready, try uninstalling and then reinstalling using the HP website to obtain the updated drivers etc. rather than your CD.

    Once you have uninstalled the software, disconnect your printer and then restart your computer. Do not re-connect your printer until you have reinstalled the software.

    To verify that the software has installed properly, look for the HP Solution Centre on your desktop, double click on the icon and check that both "scan picture" and |"scan document" are showing.

    Hope that helps!

    Scanning photos into computer at a large size?!


    This sounds like you are trying to scan images at a larger size than they actually are?
    I am not an expert-(but I have a Mac)-but from what I'm reading, scan your photos at a 300-600 dpi resolution, then use photo editing software to enlarge them. The higher the resolution, the more disk space and the more photo detail (i.e. cracks, dust, scratches, paper type) will be captured, and the more time it will take to scan. Also, for the white, does your scanner allow you to select the area/define borders during the pre-scan? Mine lets me drag borders to just the image area (but capture the image first, then do the cropping and editing to a copy later).

    Scanning


    Hi
    The pictures you scan will be available under My scans folder, to navigate to My scan folder read below.
    My Documents - >My scans.

    If you are scanning using the HP solution center software, the picture will be saved inside the HP Photosmart essential.
