If you use Brother's own software, you could: * Open it up (by the clock, called "ControlCenter" or "ControlCenter 3") * Right-click on the type of scan intended (i.e. scan to file) and choose configuration * Here are the settings controlling the scanning. If you change to "device button" on top, you'll get the settings controlling the scanning when you use the scan-button on the machine. * Change the settings to i.e. "show target folder" after scanning, depending on your requested settings.

Using epson v500 and can't get it to change the document size under image type in professional mode according to manual. scanning old B&W negatives 2 x 2 in size and it cuts off the image most of the time...


I had the same problem and have found my answer. I don't know if it's the technically correct one but it works.
When you open the scan page and it shows you the mode, setting, original document type, destination, adjustments, and then the preview and scan buttons. Under the Preview button you will see a box check marked for thumbnail. Remove the check and then do a preview scan. You should end up with a complete scan showing the slide (if you only scanned one), the open side and the surrounding blackened area too. Click on the picture in the preview and then draw an outline around the part of the picture that you want to use. Do this just like it you were going to do cropping of the photo. Once you have the box around the part you want click on zoom. Your next preview will be the picture that you want. I haven't figured out how to remove the remaining blackened area with out going into a photo edit program but it must be able to be done. Then you can scan to where ever you save them to and have the whole slide. I hope that this gets you at least some what further along.

I don't know how to save a scanned document onto my computer. I currently have a HP photosmart3110 All-in-one printer fax scanner copier


Hi
All you need to do is use the scanning software provided with the HP device.

Before scanning it will ask you to look at the preview....when you are happy with the preview start the scanning and then it will ask you where to save it....it might also save it automatically....in which case it will be saved in your my pictures folder.

cheers

My scanjet 4370 won't take pictures?


well, the picture may look the same on the preview, but when you actually save it, it will show you the correct picture. Do a preview first, before you give the scan and save command.
