Dammit!

The Navigator for my Canon printer/scanner won't open so I can't scan anything. Good thing I just got an Epson flatbed scanner. I'll see how that works, hee hee.

If you have the drivers installed, you should be able to scan from most graphics programs. For example, I scan from within IrfanView (which calls upon the TWAIN driver for my Lexmark printer/scanner.)

I am using my photoshop to scan, but it is not to convenient if you have a lot to scan. The dpi settings have to be remade for each scan and you have to crop the image by hand, the program never gets it right by itself. With the Navigator, the dpi settings stay the same until you change them and you can set it to scan the entire platen area and then crop the image later in photoshop. Anyway, I'm setting up my new scanner tomorrow. How do you like the Lexmark?

Ah, I see. The Lexmark is decent enough for scanning in sketches, and printing letters and such. When its TWAIN driver is called up, it gives a dropdown list with common settings (photo, illustration, line-art, etc.) that have their own DPI and such. It was a hand-me-down from a relative, so I can't complain! ^_^
