You'd have better results using a stand alone scanner for what you are trying to do. The HP unit you have is pretty basic, comparatively. There are lots of variables when it comes to scanning from both hardware and software standpoints, not just the scanner but the PC as well, graphics reproductive capability etc. A software mentioned by Mr. Proffitt, Pantone, will give a more accurate depiction (color) at the monitor, which can be a good thing, especially when doing editing, photos etc. There are ways to do all of this but the hardware and software needed to get professional results gets pretty costly. Those who are really serious about such things go to Mac systems instead of Windows and the bucks just roll out. Just for the heck of it, give Picasa a try, it works quite well for the average user, I've never tried Hypersnap, so I cannot speak to that. Another software(free) if it is still around with which to do SOME editing, is Photostory but it's been years since I have used that. Good luck and have fun.
