You can start EPSON Scan in three ways.

When using a TWAIN-compliant application

Note for Mac OS X users:
Depending on your application, you may not able to start EPSON Scan as described here.

This section describes how to start EPSON Scan from Photoshop Elements.

Note:
You can scan images using any TWAIN-compliant application, such as Adobe Photoshop. If there is a scanner or a TWAIN-compliant device selection menu in the application, select EPSON Perfection 3170, and then select the menu to import from a TWAIN-compliant device. EPSON Scan starts. Depending on the application, selecting a TWAIN-compliant device menu alone may start EPSON Scan.

Start Adobe Photoshop Elements.

For Windows users:
Click Start, point to All Programs (for Windows XP users) or Programs (for Windows Me, 98, or 2000 users), and click Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0.

For Macintosh users:
Double-click the Adobe Photoshop Elements 2 folder in Macintosh HD, and then double-click the Photoshop Elements 2.0 icon.

Select Import from the File menu, and then choose EPSON Perfection 3170. EPSON Scan starts.

Note for Windows XP users:
Do not choose WIA-EPSON Perfection 3170 from the menu to select scanner. If you select it, you cannot use all of the EPSON scanner functions.
