I was wondering if I needed to have specific software to work with my scanner, or if there was some generic "scanning software" that worked...
do you mean driver software, or photo-editing type software?

I... don't know. Drivers, I know, are one thing... but where the pictures scan to...
Example: My Visioneer scanner came with the PaperPort software, and whenever I scanned an image, it would go into paperport. Supposedly, the only way I could find to scan an image even, was to do it through Paperport...
I'm talking about that software...
you will need the driver for your specific model so windows can install it and then most photo software lets you "capture" or "import" an image from a device ie your scanner. what model scanner is it? visioneer ???? any numbers on it? and what windows you running? i will go hunting for a driver if you give more info
edit....adobe photoshop 7 is good but a tad complicated, and microsofts picture it shouldnt be overlooked as it is very easy to use
Go to the manufactor website or use the cd that cam with it if you have it.

If you need a basic image viewer and editor, the best one I've found is legally free. Go to Irfanview.com and get a copy.
Besides being free, its fast and simple to use.
You can also search the net for "irfanview tutorials" for some help.
Hope this helps
Besides that one Windows as its own "image" if you don't want anything fancy.
