Chapter 7. Multimedia and Imaging > Using the Scanner and Camera Wizard

Using the Scanner and Camera Wizard

Windows XP’s Scanner and Camera Wizard, originally introduced with Windows Me, provides a unified interface for transferring pictures from your imaging devices to your computer, your network, or to the World Wide Web.

If you have more than one imaging device supported by Windows XP, the Camera and Scanner Wizard displays all supported devices when you launch it from the Start menu (click Start, All Programs, Camera and Scanner Wizard the first time you use it) and allows you to choose the one you want to use (see Figure 7.1). Web cameras, scanners, digital cameras, and card readers are some of the devices the Scanner and Camera Wizard can recognize. The wizard also starts automatically when you press the Scan button on a supported scanner, skipping the dialog box shown in Figure 7.1. In these cases, the wizard skips the Choose Device dialog box and opens the scanner.
