    How about just using Preview - File>Import Image

    I never tried that!! I give it a test run, because I don't reaaly like starting up Photoshop if I'm not really going to use it. Thnaks for the suggestion!!!!! I'll let you know if this works out for me.

    No problem, Preview will use the scanner driver interface that you probably installed with the scanner. Not all of them are great to use. If you can't stand it then Vuescan uses it's own driver which may work better for you. From their website it looks like your scanner is supported by Vuescan.

    Preview seems to work ok, but it seems to only scan 1 page at a time even though it will feed multiple pages through the scanner. Oh well, if I really get tired of that I will try out the Vuescan you mentioned. Thanks again!!!
