  2. Go to File > Import and select the model of the scanner connected to the computer.
  3. Place the document or photo you want to scan face-down on the scanner glass, against the left edge and with the top of the item toward you (an arrow stamped into the plastic indicates which corner to match up).
  4. Click Scan.
  5. After editing the photo if desired, click File > Save As. Type a name for the file in the Save As field and browse for a location in the Where field. If scanning a document that you want to convert to text using OCR, save as a JPEG file.
