Import Photos from a Scanner in Photoshop Elements: Overview

            You can also import photos from a scanner in Photoshop Elements directly into the Organizer.

This often involves downloading the most recent scanner driver available for your particular type of scanner.

            After you have correctly connected the scanner to your computer, then open the Photoshop Elements Organizer window.

Then select the “From Scanner…” command to open the “Get Photos from Scanner” dialog box.

            Use the “Scanner” drop-down to select the scanner from which to import the photo. If you see the words “None Detected” in this drop-down, then double-check that your scanner is properly connected to your computer and turned on. The default folder into which the scanned photos are saved appears below the “Save Files In” label. To change this location, click the adjacent “Browse…” button to open a “Browse for Folder” dialog box.
