Microsoft Photo Editor enables you to customize graphic images that you create, scan, or open.

Selecting a Scanner

  1. On the Photo Editor File menu, click Select Scanner Source.
  2. In the Sources list, click the scanner that you want to use.

NOTE: You can select another TWAIN device, such as a digital camera, instead of a scanner. You can select any TWAIN device that is attached to your computer if it appears in the Sources box. If your scanner is not listed in the Sources box, one of the following circumstances may be the cause:

  • The scanner is not TWAIN-compliant. Photo Editor recognizes only TWAIN-compliant scanners.


  • The scanner and its software are not installed correctly. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for installing the scanner and software.
