I have to scan a lot of pictures, my old printer used to seperate each picture once I saved them.
Officejet pro 8600 scans all the pictures together. Is there a way to scan several pictures together but saved seperately??

I have been struggling with the same issue with a different HP printer/scanner and found the following: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docnam
Even though you don't have the same HP model as I have, hopefully this will save you some time.

I used to be able to do this with my HP Photosmart 3210 All in One, but now that my HP computer has died and I am using a dell I no longer have HP solution Center. I tried to find it online, but I don't think it exists there anymore.
It drives me a little nutty when I can't do what I used to able to do.

Absolutely. HP has lost me as both a personal and as a corporate customer by doing this stupidity. Let's take away features that are absolutely basic to every brand and see how the customer likes it. They're bas tards

I too am one of the MANY HP customers who are disappointed with the changes to the scanner software. I have owned no less than 15 high end/home smal business HP printers over the years. My last one was the OJ8500. I just replaced it with the OJ8600 and was very unhappy to find that the new scanner software had less features than its predecessors and that one could no longer scan multiple pictures at one time to separate files. EPIC FAIL, HP!! I was getting ready to pack it up and return the printer when I found ScanSpeeder scanning software: http://www.nitrologic.net/ It is not free ($29.95) but does allow a 10 scan trial.
ScanSpeeer allows you to scan multiple photos at once, it automatically finds the edge of each one and lets you type in info that is also saved in the file. It also has a feature that will allow you to save an archival quality file and a web/e-mail quality image file at the same time. AND, if you are so inclined, you can upload the lower resolution scan directly to Facebook. I know I sound like I work for them (LOL) but I was just so happy to find software that could fix HP's stupid decision.
I have only used ScanSpeeder a few times but am very impressed by it and think that I am going to buy it. So, ScanSpeeder appears to have saved you a sale, HP. Very sad that another company had to fix what you broke. Also, you owe me $30!!!

I promise this is the first and also the last HP printer for me. Before I was using Canon and they offered very good multiple scanning functions. Very easy to create a sigle PDF from multiple files. I mistakenly bought this HP crap just because it has wireless connection but cannot imagine how stupid the HP designers can remove just a basic functionality.

As it is now, when I scan four photos at a time, I have not found a way to save them one at a time and when I try to scan just one in comes in as just a small part of the page and I can not seem to find a way to make it normal size.
Sorry, guys but I am not a computer wiz kid; I am sure if my ten year old granddaughter was around she would show me.
Thank for you support,

It appears, nobody every did "get back with you". Hmmmmm? Seems HPs own staff is simply trolling the site with no intention of providing meaningful input.
