    Hi there, to any one

    I'm developing a small program in Visual BASIC 6, to manage and control my
    collection of post-cards of ships.

    I own an EPSON 2840 Photo Scanner, and I was planing to use it to scan my
    postcards to store them in my program.

    The problem is: I don't want to use its interface or any photo application
    (such Photoshop) but rather I perfer to use my program to do that. Does any
    one nows of any OCX, DLL or ActiveX control that I can link with my program
    in order to interface with the scanner so that I can use my program to
    directly scan the postcard and store it in the program (bare in mind that
    when I mean store is not within the executable but in a folder).

    In other words, I want to have full control of the scanner without using its
    software or any photo-application.

    I'm willing to by it.

    Any replys to this news or by email to

    A free classic edition, or a modestly priced Pro edition.

    The developer deserves a knighthood IMO for making TWAIN usable by amateur
    programmers like me. And from the sound of things, you.
