1. Turn on scanner. (Bulbs
are expensive so only have on when you are ready to scan and
turn off when done.)
2. Click mouse 2 times to open hard
drive. Open "Adobe PhotoShop ®5.5"
3. Once in PhotoShop, pull the
"File" menu down to "Import"
and to the right select "Twain Acquire"
4. Lay your image to scan face down
in the top right color of the scanner.
(Make sure the size is set to "Max. Area" (top right
of scanner screen)
5. Select settings: colorRGB,
reflective, 200 dpi, 100% (general suggestions - you can try
other ones depending on if you want it reduced in size or gray,
etc., but keep reflective setting)
6. Click "preview"
7. Move marquee (dashes) to surround
image you want scanned. Click and drag the moving dashed
lines (i.e., the marquee) to change its size.
8. Click "scan"
9. Go to "File" menu and
pull down to select "Save As."
10. Put your disk or zip cartridge in
the computer or zip drive. Go to "desktop" if the
name of your disk does not appear at the top of the save box
and change it so the title of your folder "images"
appears. Select either the file formats of "gif"
or "jpeg" which can be placed in web editors.
(You may need to flatten colors under "image" menu
in Photoshop, "mode," and "Indexed colors"
for Compuserv gif. To flatten for jpeg go to "window",
"show layers", and "flatten." Use jpeg format
to compress image -- usually compressed to medium works fine
for most images.) Under "save file as" type in the
name of the image in all lowercase letters and seven characters
or less followed by .jpeg or .gif. Click "save."
