Getting Photos from a Scanner

If you have a scanner attached to your computer with a cable, you can scan photos directly from the scanner to a folder on your hard disk and then import them into the Organizer. When you get photos from a scanner, you need to follow the scanning instructions provided by the Scanner manufacturer to complete each photo scan. As you import files into the Organizer, you can have Photoshop Elements automatically fix red eye on any photos that need it.
