How to import directly from my Epson scanner

Back when I had an earlier version of Elements, I was told how to set things up so that when I clicked on File > Import, I would immediately see my Epson Perfection V500 Photo scanner, and not just WIA Support.  I now have Adobe Photoshop Elements 20.  Does anyone know how to set that linkup?

I am using PSE 2020 in Windows 10 Pro. In the Organizer, select Edit>Preferances on the Menu bar at the top of the window. If your scanner is connected and turned on you should see it in the Scanner... panel in preferences.

 

I find it a bit easier to scan to a folder that is in my Watch Folders and import from there. That way, I have more control over where the scans are located.

 

This is what the Scanner... preferences looks like.

Thanks for your ideas. I don't use the organizer hardly ever, but I see what you mean. My problem is when using the Photo Editor, I would like File > Import to lead me directly to Epson Scanner, as it used to. Now, like you, I just scan to a folder I have created, and then tell the Editor to open that folder and import the picture I designate. Thanks again.

rlt47,

If you don't like using the Organizer, what you might consider doing is putting an Elements Editor shortcut on your desktop. Once you have the Elements Editor shortcut on the desktop, you can drag a photo from the Windows Explorer and drop it on the Editor shortcut. That will open that photo in the Editor. I do this frequently and it works great. This also works with multiple photos in a single drag and drop operation.

I think for a couple of versions now, the only scanner interface in the Editor is via the WIA Support.
