Starting a Scan With Another Scanning Program

You can use any TWAIN-compliant scanning program, such as Adobe Photoshop Elements or ArcSoft PhotoImpression, to scan with your scanner. You open the program, select Epson Scan as your scanning program, and scan. When you are finished, the scanned image opens in your scanning program so you can modify, print, and save it.
Place your original document or photo on the scanner. See the booklet for details.
Do not open the ADF while you are scanning or you will see an ADF error message and paper feeding will stop.
Start your scanning program.
Double-click the program icon from your desktop, if it is available, or do one of the following.
Select Start > All Programs or Programs > program folder > program icon.
Mac OS X:
Open the Applications folder, select the program folder, and double-click the program icon.
Do one of the following.
Photoshop Elements:
Windows: Click Edit and Enhance Photos, then open the File menu and select Import.
Mac OS X: Click Close in the Welcome window (if it appears), then open the File menu and select Import.
You can also scan using the Start from Scratch or Quickly fix Photos options in Photoshop Elements. See the Photoshop Elements Help utility for instructions.
Windows: Click Get Photos, then click Acquire from Scanner. Select your scanner, adjust other settings as necessary, then click Acquire and go to step 5.
Mac OS X: Open the File menu and select Get Photo, then select Camera/Scanner.
Select your scanner.
In some programs, you must select the scanner as the “source” first. If you see a Select Source option, choose it and select your scanner there first.
Note for Windows Vista and XP users:
Do not choose a WIA option for your scanner from the Import or Acquire list; you will not be able to use all the features of your scanner.
Epson Scan starts automatically. For instructions on using it, see Selecting Epson Scan Settings.
