  • It is an input device.
  • A scanner is like a copier, except that instead of making the copy onto paper, it creates a computer image file of the scanned image. Once the image is in this digital form, you can store it on your computer hard disk, manipulate it with a graphics design program, add it to your poster design, and more.
