Scanning Software ??

  dregn 10:48 03 Jan 2005

I use an HP G85 ( Printer/Scanner/Copyer/Fax ) and would like to get hold of efficient and inexpensive ( ? Free ! ) scanning software.
I use the WinXP scanning software but I suspect that there is something a bit more sophisticated out there.
I use the scanner mostly for saving magazine articles and newspaper cuttings and the odd photograph.
Any ideas or recommendations welcomed.
And a Happy New Year to all !

hp used to supply "precision scan pro" with their scanners. It can be downloaded for free.

Also Adobe PhotoDeluxe came bundled with my hp scanner, i still like it.

Nearly all programs allow you to scan to the program, look under Menu\File\ Acquire or insert\Acquire
