Make sure the scanner/camera and software is installed and working properly. Advanced TIFF Editor cannot help with configuring scanner or camera hardware or software. Please contact the manufacturer of the scanner or camera hardware and software for technical assistance.

The dialog box will display a list of scanners, cameras and other compatible TWAIN and WIA devices that can be used with the Advanced TIFF Editor software. Select the desired device and press Select.
Please Note: Every time the Advanced TIFF Editor is shut down and restarted, you must repeat this to step in order to scan a document.

3. Scanning a document and opening it in the Advanced TIFF Editor
Now that the scanner has been selected you are ready to scan. Insert the document into the scanner. This will launch your device software user interface.
See the screen shot below for an example using scanner software from Canon:



Press the Get Pictures button to send the document to the Advanced TIFF Editor. The document will be scanned and opened up in the Advanced TIFF Editor software.
