You can copy images to your computer by connecting your camera or a media card reader to your computer.
Use the Get Photos From Camera command in Adobe® Bridge® to download photos, and to organize, rename, and apply metadata to them.
If your camera or the card reader appears as a drive on your computer, copy images directly to your hard disk or into Adobe Bridge.
Use the software that came with your camera, Windows Image Acquisition (WIA), or Image Capture (Mac OS). For more information on using Windows Image Acquisition or Image Capture, see your computer documentation.
Certain digital cameras import images using Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) support. When you use WIA, Photoshop works with Windows and your digital camera or scanner software to import images directly into Photoshop.
Scanner software and drivers are supported by the scanner manufacturer, not Adobe. If you have problems with scanning, make sure that you are using the latest version of the scanner software and driver.
Most scanners provide a stand-alone scanning application that can be used to scan and save images.
If your scanner manufacturer doesn't provide updated software and drivers that are compatible with current operating systems you may need to look at third-party scanning solutions. These third-party utilities are dedicated scanning solutions, and they are more appropriate for critical or high-volume scanning:
Using a dedicated application to scan allows you to retouch and edit images in Photoshop while you scan in the background – which can be more efficient.
If you use a stand-alone scanning application, save your scanned images as TIFF files, then open them into Photoshop.
Some scanner software lets you designate Photoshop as the external editor for an image after a scanning is completed. Consult the documentation that came with your scanner or contact your scanner manufacturer for more details.
See TWAIN plug-in for more information about scanning using the TWAIN interface with Photoshop CS6 and later.
