Starting a Scan With Another Scanning Program

You can use any TWAIN-compliant scanning program, such as Adobe Photoshop Elements, to scan with your scanner. You open the program, select EPSON Scan as your scanning program, and scan. When you are finished, the scanned image opens in your scanning program so you can modify, print, and save it.

Start your scanning program.

    Double-click the program icon from your desktop, if it is available, or do one of the following:

    Select Start > All Programs or Programs > program folder > program icon.

    Mac OS X:
    Open the Applications folder, select the program folder, and click the program icon.

With Photoshop Elements, open the File menu and select Import.

Select EPSON Perfection 4490 Photo.

    In some programs, you must select the scanner as the “source” first. If you see a Select Source option, choose it and select your scanner there first.

Note for Windows XP users:

Do not choose a WIA option for your scanner from the Import or Acquire list; your scanner will not work correctly.
