Scan Multiple Photos at Once with Photoshop Elements 10

By Barbara Obermeier, Ted Padova

If you have several photos to scan, you can lay them out on the scanner platen and perform a single scan to acquire all images in one pass. Arrange the photos to scan on the glass and set up all the options in the scanner window for your intended output. When you scan multiple images, they form a single scan.


After you scan multiple images, Elements makes it easy for you to separate each image into its own image window, where you can save the images as separate files. In Full Photo Edit mode, choose Image→Divide Scanned Photos to make Elements magically open each image in a separate window while your original scan remains intact.

The images are neatly tucked away in the Project Bin, where you can select them for editing.


If you close one of the images that were divided, Elements prompts you to save the image. Only the scan was saved when you started the process. You still need to save the divided scans.

After dividing the images, choose File→Close All. Elements closes all files that have been saved and individually prompts you to save all unsaved images.
