Scanning photographs allows you to save images to your computer’s hard drive, email photos, or upload pictures to the internet. Scanners come with software programs which guide users through the scanning process and allow users to perform basic photograph editing. Canon scanners come with Arc Soft Photo Studio 5.5 scanning software which is a very simple program to use.
