Customer Question

In oder to acquire a Police certificate, I need to scan various documents and then upload them into my computer (an iMac Yosemite), for recovery and insertion into the application
I am unfamiliar with this process. If I scan a document, how do I save it in the computer for a future upload into the application? My HP product is an HP ENVY 120 series.
Thank you for your assistance.

My name is***** will assist you.
I am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.
You can use the Image Capture application (located in the Applications folder on your Mac). Scanning with other applications such as Preview is a very similar process.
Simplified scan mode
In the "simplified" scanner interface, follow these steps:
Place the item(s) you would like to scan on the scanner bed.
Open Image Capture by clicking Launchpad in the Dock and typing Image Capture in the search field.
Click "Scan" to scan.
Note: The scanned items will become JPEG images incrementally named: scan1.jpeg, scan2.jpeg, and so forth. You can then access them in the Pictures folder on your Mac.
