Back in the Scanner and Camera Wizard main window click the Preview button lasso your image if necessary and then click Next

Don't skip this important step: Clicking the Preview button tells the scanner to make a quick scan, locate your image's position, and lasso itoutline the image's edges with a little square. By locating the image, the scanner then knows to scan only that portion of its bed. If you skip the preview, the scanner simply scans its entire bed, creating a huge file with your image floating somewhere inside.

The wizard's usually pretty good with its lasso, but if it's a little off target, drag inward or outward on the lasso's little corner squares, as shown in Figure 4-10 , until it completely surrounds your image.

Figure 4-10. When you click the Preview button, the scanner locates where you placed your item on the scanner's bed. The dotted outline indicates movable borders. The wizard generally identifies the perimeter of your item fairly accurately, but often leaves out the white border around printed photographs. If you want your scan to include the border, drag the corner squares out a bit.
