  2. Start Epson Scan.
  3. Select the scan mode you want to use.
  4. Select the scan settings for your scan.
  5. Preview your image.
  6. When you finish selecting all your settings, click Scan. You see the File Save Settings window.

  8. Select any other settings you want to use on the File Save Settings window. Click the Options button to access additional settings.
  9. Click OK. Epson Scan scans your document and you see this window:


  10. Choose one of the following options:
    • If you are scanning only one page, click Save File.
    • If you need to scan additional pages in a document, click Add page. Place additional pages on the product for scanning, click Scan, and repeat until you have scanned all the pages. When you are finished, click Save File.
    • If you need to delete or reorder the scanned pages, click Edit page. Delete or reorder the pages using the icons that appear on the bottom of the editing window. When you are finished, click OK.
    Note: If you installed an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program, you may see a screen indicating the program is converting your page to text. Wait until the program re-scans the page and close the program, if necessary.
  11. Click Close to exit the Epson Scan window, if necessary.
Epson Scan scans your original, and saves the PDF file in the selected folder or opens it in your scanning program. If the file was saved directly to your computer, you see the file in the Windows Explorer or OS X Finder, where you can view and print the document, if desired.
