    Sequential scan pictures to file(s)

    I've recently had to scan in some pics (old photos of Y6 leavers) and now doing old pics of head who's retiring - any good tools so I can just create a folder, put pics into scanner, press go, pics go into folder (sequential named) and back to ready to press go again for next pic?

    Sounds like IrfanView may do the job for you:



    Link: IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

    We use Irfanview and an autofeed scanner to handle multiple invoices for SAPS. Seems to do the job.

    Most photocopiers will do that. And with powerpoint 2010 you can do bulk imports via th photo album feature

    I use a small script I created with AutoIt with my Canon LiDE 210 - it waits for the appropriate dialog boxes to pop up and sends keypresses as required.

    Trouble with that in our school is, you put the documents in the feeder, walk to the computer, set it running, only to find someone has removed the documents from the feeder!
