Transferring pictures via TWAIN software

You've used your digital camera to photograph your real estate agency's newest listings for the company Web page. Now you need to open your pictures in an image editing software program to touch up some peeling paint, add some text, and insert an asking price.

Using KODAK Access TWAIN Acquire Software (TWAIN) for WINDOWS, you can do just that. TWAIN is special industry-standard software that allows you to transfer pictures from your digital camera directly to TWAIN-compliant software, such as ADOBE PHOTODELUXE.
