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 :)

I am trying to scan a document and it is not working, I have a hp photosmart c4280 printer. How do I install a usb cord


hi
Place the document or image into the scanner for scanning. A scanner with a paper feeder will only receive flat papers and photographs, but a flatbed scanner opens to accommodate books, fabrics and leaves along with flat papers. There is even a attachment for feeding photo slides into flatbed scanners.
  • Step 2 Start the scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif. If the scanner does not engage the software automatically, press the "start" or "scan" button, or click the scanner icon on the computer screen to initialize the software.
  • Step 3 Activate the scan. Click the "file" menu and select "acquire," "import," or another practical choice that applies.
  • Step 4 Preview the item to be scanned. Most scanners have a preview option. This will show the scan area inside dotted lines. The lines can be moved with the mouse to relocate, enlarge or crop the scanning area.
  • Step 5 Set the resolution for images by number of dots per inch (dpi). For computer screen viewing, 100 dpi should suffice. Use 200 to 300 dpi for items to be printed.
  • Step 6 Use the appropriate setting for scanning black and white text. If the scanner does not show a preset for text, use "line art" or "black and white" at 300 dpi. Then use the optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the image of the text into a file for word processi

    Stylus CX9400 Photo Printer: paper jammed inside printer...


    If paper is jammed, a Paper jam message will appear on the control panel display.

    Follow these steps to clear the jam:

    1. Gently pull any jammed paper out of the output tray or sheet feeder.

    2. If the paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus CX.

    3. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus CX back on.

      alert_note.gif Note: Be sure to check the far left of the carriage area when checking for jammed paper. Paper that is jammed there may be hidden from view.
    If paper jams inside the Automatic Document Feeder, clear the jam as follows:

    1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover and remove any jammed paper.

    2. If necessary, lift the document cover and remove any paper that has jammed inside.

    3. Press OK to clear any messages on the display screen.

    When printing photos on glossy Kodak paper the error message " paper jam reload" appears.


    Some printers are not able to or having difficulty feeding glossy photo papers at 230 gsm and above, try using photo papers below 230 gsm.

    Will not scan from glass but feeder will?


    Using your scanner program such as PaperPort, you really have to pay attention on where the document/photo is located for scanning.


    Steps
    1. Click on Start, Programs, Paperport
    2. Right above the Word "SCAN", you will have several options on;
    a. Document or Photo
    b. Flatbed or Feeder
    3. Once step 2b has been selected, the M20i will scan your document per your instructions.

    Note:#1
    If you place your document on Flatbed but your selection on your screen says "Feeder" where do you think the scanner will look for your document? The answer is --> Feeder!!!

    Note #2
    Make sure that you click Accept,& DONE, other wise M20i will just sit and wait for your next command.

    I hope this resolves the confusion between GLASS and FEEDER scanning.

    Problem with paper feeder. Replace paper feeder or replace just pick up rubber at paper feeder mechanics. You can add thickness of rubber by adding black double tape (flexible) (about 1mm).

    ADF Jam


    It sounds like the grabbing wheels in the document feeder are losing their grip. You can take alcohol to rub down and clean the rubber tires in the document feeder. There is a possibility that a very small piece of paper is jammed in the feeder as well, which can cause the paper to jam and make a weird noise. Please let me know if this resolves your issue. Thank you.
