See Acquire Settings


Images can easily be obtained (acquired) from a TWAIN and WIA data source using the following steps:


1. Make sure the scanner/camera and software is installed and configured correctly

Make sure the scanner/camera and software is installed and working properly. Able Fax Tif View cannot help with configuring scanner or camera hardware or software. Please contact the manufacturer of the scanner or camera hardware and software for technical assistance.


2. Selecting a Twain source (scanner, camera, etc.)

The next step is to select the Twain source that will be used for the scanning. Open the Able Fax Tif View and select the File menu item and then Acquire. The following dialog box will appear:


WIA device



TWAIN device



The dialog box will display a list of scanners, cameras and other compatible TWAIN and WIA devices that can be used with the Able Fax Tif View software. Select the desired device and press Select.

Please Note: Every time the Able Fax Tif View is shut down and restarted, you must repeat this to step in order to scan a document.


3. Scanning a document and opening it in the Able Fax Tif View

Now that the scanner has been selected you are ready to scan. Insert the document into the scanner. This will launch your device software user interface.

See the screen shot below for an example using scanner software from Canon:



Press the Get Pictures button to send the document to the Able Fax Tif View. The document will be scanned and opened up in the Able Fax Tif View software.


Please Note: Every manufacturer will have a different user interface for their software that comes with their device; however the general idea is the same. For more information on operating the software included with your scanner, please contact the device manufacturer.
