Photoshop, and ScanTastic.
Setting Up the Scanner
1.
Take the scanner out of the box.
2.
Place the scanner on a flat, stable surface with its rear panel
facing you.
3.
Locate the round screw knob in the middle of the rear panel
under the word CLAMP.
4.
Turn the screw counterclockwise and remove it.
5.
Push the screw into the storage hole on the right under the
word STOCK. Just push it in; it does not screw in. This keeps
it handy in case you ever want to ship your scanner.
6.
Connect the power cable to the power inlet on the rear of the
scanner and the other end into an appropriately grounded
outlet as shown below.
If the scanner comes on when you plug it in, turn it off by
pressing the OPERATE button.
Connecting the Scanner to Your
Macintosh®
Warning:
Be sure that your Macintosh, scanner, and any other SCSI
devices are turned off before you unplug or plug in any cables.
You connect the scanner to your Macintosh with the SCSI cable
included in the box. This cable has a 25-pin connector on one
end and a 50-pin connector on the other.
1.
Plug the 25-pin connector into the SCSI port on the Mac.
This port has a e icon above it.
Note:
If you are already using the SCSI port on your Macintosh for
another SCSI device, such as an external hard disk, you will need
a SCSI cable with 50-pin connectors on both ends. You can then
connect the scanner to your other SCSI device, following the
instructions in Chapter 2 of your ES-600C User’s Guide.
2.
Connect the 50-pin end of the cable to either the right or left
SCSI connector of the scanner; then fasten the connector
with the wire clamps on its side.
3.
Turn on the scanner, then the Macintosh. (Always turn the
scanner on before you turn on the computer.)
lnstalling the Software
Now that you have connected the scanner and the Macintosh,
you’re ready to install the software and start scanning. To
install Adobe Photoshop and ScanTastic just follow the steps
below.
Note:
You will need about 10MB of hard disk space to install the software.

Your First Scan
First, choose an image to scan. The best choice is a color
photograph. Printed pictures, such as those in magazines, do
not scan as well as photographs because of the dot patterns
used in the printing process.
After you choose an image, follow these steps:
1.
Turn on your scanner.
2.
Turn on your Macintosh.
3. Double click the Adobe Photoshop icon.
4.
Raise the document cover on the scanner and place the
image face down on the glass surface.
5.
Carefully close the document cover so that you do not
disturb the position of the photograph on the glass.

6.
From the file menu in Photoshop choose ScanTastic from
the Acquire pop-up menu under the File menu.
