I have a Dell All-In-One PictBridge Photo 924. I

Open Dell All-in-one center, keep the picture on the Scanner bed and click on scan and choose a location to save the picture once the scan is completed and the preview is visible. Alternatively, a simpler way to do this is to Open MSPaint, click on File and click on Import from Camera or Scanner. Choose the kind of picture you want to scan and confirm scan. Try experimenting with options to experience scanning effects and image quality.

Good Luck!

My scanner will not scan negatives

Most scanners aren't designed to scan negatives. (Of course the manufactures would never want to tell you their product CANT do something).

Flatbed scanners typically have a light on one side.

To scan negatives properly, you need to have a scanner that has a backlight, or a second light in the bed's lid that you fold down.

Canon USA, Inc. make a few flatbed scanners that have backlights. They range from $60 to $180, depending on the features and resolution you want to pay for.

Please see the below link. This is a more expensive one, but is shown just so you get the idea. In the pictures, note specifically in the picture that shows the lid open, how the white backing on the lid can be removed from a clip at the top. Underneath, is the backlight and clips designed to hold negatives in with the included frames.

Problem with my A3 flatbed scanner

The preview, if it is thumbnail picture, it is difficult ti decipher. Dont worry about that. Pencil drawings are very light and needs higher contrast. Try a few options and you can select the best one. If you scan a pencil drawing in grey, it may appear light and also file size will be bigger.

The scanner copies three photos as one

Assuming you're using the Epson Scan software, select Home or Professional mode and click Preview. When the preview image appears, draw a marquee around each of the three photos. (Note that as you draw each marquee the number beneath the little image of a marquee - the white square with the dotted line around it - increases.) After drawing your marquees, click the All button, then click Scan. The scanner should make three separate passes in succession, producing three separate images.

Negative Scanning Problem Using Epson Scan Software

Make sure the rectangular slots at either end of the film frame are not obstructed or covered in any way. When I attempted to scan color negatives I had the same darkness problem in the scanned image. When I cleared those rectangular slots, everything was fine. I hope this helps.
