I have downloaded the TWAIN SDK from the twain org website, but am having a heck of a time understanding it all. I want scan a small image from my scanner and use the newly acquired bitmap in my program. Does anyone know how to implement the acquire funtion? (or ANY function for that matter) How do i get the scanner to scan, and How do i retreive the image that is scanned? I am using visualc++ 5. I am reading the literature included in the devel. kit but it is confusing. a more simplified approach would be helpful. thanks.
