- The Epson Perfection V850 Pro Photo Scanner came with a four installation CD's, but I don't have a CD drive. So I followed the installation instrucitons to download the Epson Perfection V850 Pro Photo Scanner software.
- I ran the software for the first time and left it in Full Auto Mode.
- I found this old photo that will be great for Throwback Thursday.
- Placed it in the scanner and pressed SCAN.
- It automatically scanned the photo and saved it into my photo folder. Looks good.
- Next up I wanted to try an old family photo, still in Full Auto Mode.
- Here it is.
