Yes.  If you have the attached printer you can put the picture on the scanner bed and hit "scan".  Alternativly you need ot buy (or borrow a scanner)

Do not know how to scan and email documents from hp psc 1350 I need step by step instructions


Scanning is the process of converting pictures and text into an electronic format for your computer. You can scan photos and text documents. Because the scanned image or text is in an electronic format, you can bring it into your word processor or graphics software program and modify it to suit your needs. You can do the following:
• Scan photos of your kids and e-mail them to relatives, create a photographic inventory of your house or office, or create an electronic scrapbook. • Scan text from an article into your word processor and quote it in a report, saving you a lot of retyping. To use the scan features, your HP PSC and computer must be connected and turned on. The HP PSC software must also be installed and running on your computer prior to scanning. To verify that the HP PSC software is running on a Windows PC, look for the hp psc 1300 series icon in the system tray at the lower right side of your screen, next to the time.
You can start a scan from your computer or from your HP PSC. These instructions are to scan direct from the printer.
Note: Bright direct sunlight on your HP PSC, or halogen desk lamps placed close to your HP PSC, might affect the quality of scanned images. Note: High resolution scanning (600 dpi or higher) requires a large amount of hard disk space. If there is not enough hard disk space available, your system might stall.
Scan an original 1 Load your original face down in the left front corner of the glass. 2 Press Scan. A preview image of the scan appears in the HP Scan window on the computer, where you can edit it. (For more information about editing a preview image, see the onscreen hp photo & imaging help that came with your software.)
3 Make any edits to the preview image in the HP Scan window. When you have finished, click Accept. The HP PSC sends the scan to the HP Photo & Imaging Gallery (HP Gallery), which automatically opens and displays the image. The HP Gallery has many tools that you can use to edit your scanned image. You can improve the overall image quality by adjusting the brightness, sharpness, color tone, or saturation. You can also crop, straighten, rotate, or resize the image.
When the scanned image looks just the way you want it, you can open it in another application, send it via e-mail, save it to a file, or print it. For more information about using the HP Gallery, see the onscreen hp photo & imaging help that came with your software.
Hope this helps!

How can I scan a photograph, save it and then send a copy by e-mail


First do you have a scanner? if not take a digital photo with Macro settings and flash off.
If you do have scanner and figure out how to scan, scan it as a JPG or if for archival TFF. A Jpg will show and transfer better by email for the masses. after you scan it in say windows, you can save it on say your desktop and then right click it and say send to Mail recipient. If it is a big photo and you want to reprint it make sure the scan is at least 300 DPI if your scanner will go high enough scan it at the highest optical resolution that your printer has, again this is if you are planning on printing it on the other side. If you are not printing it scan anything above say 72 DPI.

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

Why my scanner does not work?and my printer works?i have a printer mp 140 canon


Thats like asking why your engine works but your tires are flat. You need scanning software on your computer for the scanner to work, but if you just want a copy you press copy. It won't scan until it knows where to send the scan and how you want it scanned.

You can start a scan from your computer or from the HP All-in-One.

● On a Windows computer, look for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows system tray (at the lower right side of the screen, near the time) to verify the software is running.
Note Closing the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows system tray can cause the HP All-in-One to lose some of its scan functionality. If this happens, you can restore full functionality by restarting your computer or by starting the HP Photosmart Software.
● On a Mac, the software is always running.
Tip You can use the HP Photosmart Software (Windows) or HP Photosmart Mac Software (Mac) to scan images, including panorama images. Using this software, you can also edit, print, and even share your scanned images. For more information, see the onscreen Help that came with the HP All-in-One.

time stamp on your photo.
By default, the Paper Type is set to Automatic and the
Date Stamp setting is set to Off. If you want, you can
change the defaults of these settings with the Set New
Defaults option.
