Scanning a Picture

If your photos are of the old-fashioned print variety, you can still turn them into digital files, using a flatbed scanner. When you initiate a scan, Windows automatically launches the now-familiar Scanner and Camera Wizard. As you can see in Figure 36.2, the scanner part of this wizard lets you control how your picture is scanned. All you have to do is follow these steps:

1.
Select one of the Picture Type options: Color Picture, Grayscale Picture, Black and White Picture or Text, or Custom. You can also click the Options button to change the resolution of the scan.

tip

If you don't like the preview scan, reposition the item on your scanner and click the Preview button to start a new scan.

2.
Click the Preview button. The wizard now displays a preview of what you're scanning.

3.
If you want to crop the item you're scanning, use the handles around the preview area to crop to a smaller area.

4.
If you like what you see, click the Next button; then enter the name, file format, and location for this group of scans.

5.
Click the Next button to complete the scan.

6.
When the next screen appears, select Nothing if you're done with this scan, and then click Next.

7.
Click Finish to exit the wizard.
