Auto-Cropping Gang-Scanned Photos

A lot of photographers scan photos using a technique called “gang scanning.” That’s a fancy name for scanning more than one picture at a time. Scanning three or four photos at once with your scanner saves time, but then you eventually have to separate these photos into individual documents. Here’s how to have Elements 3 do that for you automatically.

Step One

Place the photos you want to “gang scan” on the bed of your flatbed scanner, and scan the images into Elements using the Organizer (they’ll appear in one Elements document). You can access the scanned images by clicking on the Get Photos button in the Organizer’s Options Bar. Choose From Scanner in the submenu, and in the dialog that appears, select where and at what quality you want to save your scanned image.
