How to Scan Documents using Paint in Windows XP or Vista

The most common way of scanning documents or pictures is by using the software application that comes with the scanner itself. You put the document into the glass and run the scanner software to save the scanned picture on your computer. But did you know that you can scan directly with Paint in Windows XP or Vista even without installing the scanner software? Windows XP and Vista supports scanning drivers called Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) which allows you to scan document as an alternative to the scanner software application. It is actually faster than using the scanner software because it appears directly on the Paint and you can also make some adjustments on the quality.
