Yes, but it is easiest to do so by inserting your photos within the clear double-sided legal-sized folder that is provided for that purpose.

Sure can as long as it is a single sheet. It will save as .pdf or .jpg. It is not as good as my Epson flat plate scanner for pictures and misc items but it will work.

Q7. Can ScanSnap scan photographs?

A7. Please be aware of the following potential problems before you scan any photographs.

Potential damage:
Scanning photographs may scratch their surface.
We do not recommend that you scan valuable photographs with ScanSnap.
Document feeding:
Since photographs are a special type of media, we cannot guarantee that ScanSnap will handle photographs the same way it handles documents that meet its scanning specifications. In addition, ScanSnap's hopper cannot hold as many photographs as it can other document types.
Image quality:
Scanning photographs with a ScanSnap for purposes that do not require high resolution, such as creating JPEG files for display on a website, should not be a problem.

[Note]
It is recommended that you use ScanSnap Carrier Sheet when you scan photographs.

Yes, but you do not have the control that you would with a photo scanner, e.g. dust removal, cropping, color correction, etc. As an inveterate photographer, I would say that it makes an acceptable jpg or pdf file, but not a great file. I would not use it as a scanning source for things I have going into Photoshop.

Yes but I've never done it, and I dont think they will be the degree of quality as a stand alone picture scanner could produce.

You can, but if they are small you have to use a carrier and I haven't had the time to figure out how to "trim" the non-photo part of the scan yet. There is a crop feature, but I haven't figured it out yet.

great! But will it scan photos to 300 dpi? (I have a flat bed scanner if I need them higher than that.)
