ShowWith a picture directly from a scanner or digital camera

Before you begin, make sure that your device is TWAIN (TWAIN: A cross-platform interface for acquiring electronic images that have been captured by scanners, digital cameras, and still-frame video capture boards.)-compatible or WIA (Windows Image Acquisition (WIA): A device-driver interface that supports still digital cameras and low- and high-end scanners, and allows retrieving of still images from IEEE 1394-based DV camcorders and USB-based "Web cams.")-compatible and is connected to your computer. You should also make sure that you have installed the device software that supports TWAIN or WIA.

Some devices come with more than one software program. If you are not sure what software is TWAIN-compatible or WIA-compatible, check the device documentation or contact the manufacturer of the device.

  1. Right-click the empty picture frame, point to Change Picture, and then click From Scanner or Camera.
  2. If you have more than one device attached to your computer, select the device you want to use.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • If the selected device is a scanner and you want to use default settings for scanning the image, click Web Quality if you are going to display the picture on a screen, or Print Quality if you are going to print it, and then click Insert to scan your picture.
    • If the selected device is not a scanner (for example, if it is a digital camera), or if you want to customize any settings before you scan the picture, click Custom Insert, then follow the instructions that come with the device you're using.

 Note   The Insert button might be unavailable with some scanners because the scanner software doesn't support an automatic scan. Use the Custom Insert button instead.
