    I am also trying to scan a picture and save it to my pictures folder but a warning pops up saying, "epson jpeg plug-in. Unable to write
    to file." I can't figure it out either. It has also worked in the past. I reinstalled the software; ran registry software; rebooted; ran the error-checking program on the hard drive, defragmented, etc. I ended up having to use it on another computer. I would love to know what the problem is. thanks. SR

    Me too! I have a 4490 and am getting the "can't write to file" message. Been going out of my mind. Re-installed everything I could find. Checked for every change I might have made. Problem occurs with JPG and PDF but not TIF. Semi-solution:- The MS Wizard works! Hard to get really good quality but this is no big deal for me at this stage. I'm running XP SP2. The irony of this is that I never would have thought MS would work when any other supplier wouldn't AND Epson's contribution was "It's a Windows problem. Call Microsoft."

YOU TAKE PICTURES ON YOUR TABLET FROM CAMERA ON TABLET- HOW DO YOU SEND THEM TO SOMEONE ELSE!


Hello, Judy -

After taking the picture, you need to locate the file folder in which the image was saved. If it is not in JPEG format, if you can, save it to JPEG. Also, you may wish to rename the image to something other than a number. I save the images I have by the person's name with a date. Example: Dark-Judy_2017-Dec-19.jpg

Note: I have a Folder titled Photos. Within my Photos folder, I have files titled: Family, Friends, Garden, Vacation, etc. Those are the files where I save individual images. You may find a similar organization system helpful to you in the future.

Then, you can send the person an email and attach the JPEG image. Note: I always let the indivdual know that a JPEG image (or images) is attached to the email.

Best wishes.

Trying to download pictures from office word and get file is not an imaghe


The pictures you saved are contained in a Win document file. You'll need to save them as picture (jpeg) files

1. Open up the document you saved the pictures in
2. Right Click on a Picture (within in document), you should get an option for "Save As Picture"
3. Save the picture in a folder that you can find later.
4. Repeat 1 - 3, for all pictures

Now Sign in to Facebook and Upload the pictures from the folder you saved them in earlier.

I want to scan to my documents and the scan only scans to photo essentials. What do I do?


Hi,

How are you scanning it ? From HP Solutions Center or HP Director ?

Try this step.

Open HP Director or HP Solution Center.

Under Settings you will find Pictures/Document Scan
Below you will find option like File Type : Choose JPEG or PDF

Save it.

IF this does not work, the best option for you is to uninstall HP Photosmart Essentials from Add/Remove programs ( or Control panel - Programs and Features )

But however, by default the pictures/documents are still saved in MY Documents - My Scans folder even if the Photosmart essential pop-up after you scan

Regards,
Ron

How do I change the type of file my scanner saves a document in?


No .Type reconiznition software is very complicated and expensive. All a scanner does is divide the sceen into millions of dots and copies those dots in Picture(JPEG) format. It's software know nothing except to copy what is there.

When you see the File Save Settings window, you need to select the location, name, and format of the scanned image file you want to save.
  1. In the File Save Settings window, specify the file folder in which you want to save your scanned image. Click the My Documents or My Pictures radio button (Windows XP or earlier versions), or the Documents or Pictures radio button (Windows Vista or Mac OS X).
  2. If you want to select another folder, click Other, then click Browse (Windows) or Choose (Mac OS X) and select the folder. If you want to save your image on the desktop, simply click Other.
  3. Specify a file name prefix with an alphanumeric character string. A 3-digit number is automatically added to the file name, but you can change the Start Number if you like. If you are scanning multiple images at once, each image will receive a different 3-digit number.
  4. Select a file format. Depending on the format, the Options button may be available for making detailed settings.
  5. The check boxes at the bottom of the window give you these options:
  • Overwrite any files with the same name: Select this option if you want to reuse the selected file name and location and overwrite previous files with the same names.
  • Show this dialog box before next scan: Select this option if you want the File Save Settings window to appear automatically before you scan in Home or Professional Mode. If you deselect it, you must click the File Save Settings button to open the window.
  • Open image folder after scanning: Select this option if you want Windows Explorer or the Macintosh Finder to automatically open to the folder where your scanned image is saved when Epson Scan finishes scanning.
6. Do one of the following, depending on the currently selected scan mode:
  • Home or Professional Mode: Click OK. Epson Scan starts scanning.
  • Full Auto Mode: Click OK, click OK again, then click Scan. Epson Scan starts scanning.
The scanned image is saved in the file and location you chose.

Unable to write to file


I had the same problem and fixed mine without re installation. Even though the error does not indicate it very well, the application could not write to the destination. The EPSON Scan application has a destination in two places. One under configuration, in my case, correct. However, a more buried location, next to the Scan button, press the arrow to edit more settings. There, you will find another destination, in my case, incorrect ( a folder that did not exist). Change the setting to a folder that does exist, it should work. Check out my fix here, detailed with pictures. Thank you. Hope this helps someone.

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. :)
