This scanner is a TWAIN-compliant device. You can scan images using a TWAIN-compliant image processing application.

The following TWAIN-compliant image processing applications are included in your scanner package. Use the one appropriate for your purpose.

Note for Mac OS X users:
For details on ArcSoft PhotoImpression, refer to its Web site.

You can also scan images using common TWAIN-compliant applications such as Adobe® Photoshop®.

While in a TWAIN-compliant application, when you select a scan command to scan an image, EPSON Scan starts and scans the image with the specified settings.

While the TWAIN-compliant application may appear to be controlling your scanner in the scanning process, it is EPSON Scan which is actually doing the job.

You can use the EPSON Scan screen to specify various settings for scanning.

Note:
You can operate EPSON Scan in the same way on both Windows and Macintosh. This guide explains the operation procedure using Windows examples.

Note for Perfection 1270 users:
The Perfection 1270 does not support Macintosh.
