Managing Photos in a Cloud Service

Photos are uploaded to a photo management service. Digitizing printed photos to register them with a cloud service allows you to find the photos that you need quickly and edit the photos as you like. You can share them with your family or friends anytime.

This section explains how to establish a link with a cloud service by using ScanSnap Cloud.

Before using ScanSnap Cloud, you need to agree with the Terms of service for ScanSnap Cloud and configure the settings. For details, refer to Saving a Scanned Image in a Cloud Service by Using ScanSnap Cloud.
