I have an iMac (Snow Leopard 10.6.2) with a HP Photosmart scanner/printer and have just scanned about a dozen documents. My problem is I can't find them. Where do they default save to and how do I change this default?
Each scanning app has its own preferences of where it stores the images. You should be able to select the destination either at scanning time or through the preferences. I'd read your help/documentation to determine where.
Also using spotlight to search for them may be helpful. My Epson scanner defaults to imgxx for its file name where xx is an incremental number.
Found them but don't know how. Initially, the HP scan window opened but did not provide any options for save etc so I can only presume they didn't save anywhere. After a reboot, entered the HP scan window through applications and this gave me the options to save etc etc. I'm only new on this iMac so for someone who uses it as infrequently as me, it might take some time. Thanks

Dilbert designed it.
You may also find various long lost files in that second to last step
p.s. If you figure out how to save scans in smaller files THAT will be big.
