OS X Mavericks: Scan an image
If you have a scanner or a printer with a scanner, you may not need any special software to scan an image.
With a scanner that has an automatic document feeder, you can scan several pages at once. With a flatbed scanner, you can scan many images at once, store each image in its own file, and straighten any images that were crooked on the bed during scanning.
- Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Printers & Scanners.
- Select your scanner in the list at the left, then click Open Scanner on the right.
If your scanner is also a printer, you may need to click Scan on the right before you can click Open Scanner.
If you don’t see an Open Scanner button, check the documentation that came with your scanner to see how to perform scans.
- Choose how to scan your images.
