Scanning - When I scan a photo, how can I then access it. I have Picasa 3 software

When you scan a photo or document, the computer will need to save the new document somewhere on the system. You should determine (before the scanning process) where that document is being saved and what name it is being given.

No Image after scanning using canon 8000f Windows XP. Can a nearly full hard disk cause this?

I have many years experience repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion to you.

Yes a full hard drive can stop the image from being saved to the hard drive but the scanner should still scan the image but not be able to save it to your drive. When you say nearly full hard drive you need some room to save images so if you can try and make some room for these images. Try scanning in preview first that should show you your image without saving it.

I hope this helps you out.

When I save a scanned document you increase the file size. Please. Thanks.

Document size can be set before you scan.
Your scanner software should give you options for type of document and resolution settings. If your documents are to large, set resolution lower.
Example, Black and white or greyscale scans are much smaller in size than color documents.
Saving files as jpg will compress the file for storage.
If you have an image editing program you can decrease the size of the file after the scan.

Problem scanning multi page document

You do not say which software you are using but if you can afford PixEdit you can save to multipage tiff, Pdfs and so on. Also combine singlepage and mulitpage documents to one mulitpage and vice verca.

That doesn't happen to me.
It may be the way your computer preferences are set up rather than the scanner,

Scanner problem

Hi BethKay,

What it's telling you is that the "filename" that the scanner/software package is trying to use to save the document being scanned to your hard drive has reached it's limit in the amount of times that it can be incremented by "1". In other words every time you scan a document it is saved to a directory or folder on your PC under a filename which is probably assigned by default. This filename has a "suffix" which is also assigned by the scanner/software eg. filename01.tif (or jpg, etc) filename02.tif filename03.tif and so on. Either I'm way off base or you must have scanned a whole bunch of documents using this naming convention because the scanner/software has run out of numbers that it can affix to each individual file. What you need to do is either 1. Change the folder that you are saving the documents to or 2. Change the pre-suffix filename in order to retain individuality.

Make sense?

Let me know if this helps and good luck.

Setting the format of the picture i scan

Ok I am not sure why ya scanner won't save in JPEG .. however converting the files to JPEG is relitively "Simple". After saving the Scanned picture.. Open it up in say MS Paint, Painshop etc, then simply choose "Save As.." from the File Menu, and save it as a NEW image file this time with a JPEG extension. IE: origional... picture.png or picture.bmp ... save as ...picture.jpg .. ya should be good to go. :)
