A: Scanning a photograph (or other image) to jpeg file
- Place your document on the scanner bed and ensure that the scanner is turned on.
- Launch the EPSON Scan application (located in the Applications folder). Once you have launched the application you will see the set of controls shown at left.
- Choose appropriate settings and click the Preview button.
Remember: the higher the scanning resolution, the larger the image file that will result. If you are scanning the image for use in a print-based project, use 300DPI as the scanning resolution; if you are scanning for a web-based project, or simply to send a digital copy of a photograph to a friend via email, use 72DPI.
- The preview scan will show the entire scanner bed with your document positioned on it. Click and drag with the crosshair cursor to select the region you want to scan, re-check the settings, then click the Scan button. This will bring up a second dialogue box asking where to save the resulting jpeg image.
- Specify a folder location for the scanned image to be saved, a naming convention for the image file name(s); and an image format.
By default the scanned images will be saved as jpegs in your Pictures folder, and will be named "img00n.jpg". Once you have selected the appropriate settings, begin the final high-resolution scan by clicking "OK".
If you wish to do further edits to the scanned image (cropping, further scaling) you can use Photoshop.
