If you selected Show a preview and you want to scan another document or picture, place the page on the glass and click Add New Selection. The software saves the scan to a subfolder in the My Scans folder. The subfolder is named for the current year and month. The scanned image is also sent to the HP Photosmart software by default.

When you are finished with all pages, click Finish.
