Scan On A Mac Using Image Capture

Usually, most scanners/printers comes with an application with the software supplied to perform scanning but in Mac you can also use the mac’s image capture application to perform scanning. Before you begin, make sure that your printer drivers and the scanner drivers are installed and your pritner is connected to your Mac. To check this, Go to System Preferences and Click Print & Scan  – You should see your printer/scanner listed in the left pane. If not, then you need to install the printer/scanner before attempting to scan.

Next, open Finder and click Applications from the left pane. In the search, type image capture, and then open the image capture application. If there are more then one scanners, select the scanner from  the left pane.


To scan multiple pages, you  will need to select the PDF format and put check on “Combine into single document” then if you wish to change scan location, you will select that in the Scan To field.
