How to Scan

To scan an image using a typical flatbed scanner,

  1. go to START > Control Panel.
  2. Double-click on Scanners and Cameras. The Scanner and Camera Wizard will appear.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Choose the picture type. Then, click Preview to preview your scan.
  5. Once the preview scan has completed, you can crop the part of the image you wish to scan by using the cropping handles on the right. Once you have cropped your image, click Next.
  6. Choose the name you want to give to this picture as well as the file format and location in which you want the picture to be saved.
  7. Click Next.
  8. The wizard will then scan the picture.
  9. When the scan is complete, the wizard will ask what you want to do with the image you just scanned. Typically, you would simply choose Nothing. I’m finished working with these pictures and click Next.
  10. Finally, click Finish to close the wizard. You can then use the image you scanned just as you would with any other picture.
