I'm far from a computer/photo nerd. Can anyone who is using this scanner give me some advice?

Thanks

Thanks...I looked at that video, but didn't help my problem. After a stamp is scanned, I cannot find it. I've tried documents, desktop etc....no luck at all.

Might have to go back to the iPhone.

Post a screenshot of the scanning program. There will be a setting on that screen that specifies the receiving file name.

If finding the file is your problem, you should be able to set file location in the Settings of your scanning app.

It all depends on your system (Mac or PC) and the app you are using. More info is needed!

EDIT: Oh right - Canon Lide 300... if you are using Canon's software, there are options of where to save files. Set that up to where you want scanned files to go & voila. There are different types of files, so make sure you set them all.

re: Advice on set up and scanning stamps on Canon Like 300

The easiest way would be to use Irfanview.
Open the program, press CTRL shift and a together. This opens a scan dialogue. With your scanner switched on, in irfanview click on "select twain source" click on your scanner. This will open a scan gear window and then choose your settings and click preview.
Adjust borders on preview by dragging the dotted lines, when ok click scan.
The scanned image will show in Irfanview. Use Ctrl R to set size, ctrl S to save.
Save as Jpeg or other file extension and choose destination folder and file name.
I have a folder on desktop labelled "stamps" and also one for sales items.
If for Stamporama purposes you find the image is too large to upload then reopen in Irfanview, Ctrl R adjust size to fit, click enter, click ctrl s and press end, append a number or letter to the file name and press enter.

Does Irfan work on a MacBook?

Nope, it doesn't. What are you using now, bigcreekdad?

Start with that before you start downloading who-knows-what!

re: Advice on set up and scanning stamps on Canon Like 300

Thanks for the suggestions. However, I'm going to stick with the iPhone. It's very easy to download to my MacBook Pro, and the positioning and cropping works well.

The scanner seemed like a good idea, but I can't deal well with anything that is overly complicated....at least for yours truly.

My iPhone is version 7, and there are several newer one, that likely have better camera capabilities. Maybe time for an upgrade.
