Built-in support
The Image Capture Architecture (ICA) in Mac OS X v10.3 includes support for a broad range of USB and FireWire flatbed and film scanners.

Applications that directly support acquiring images from TWAIN devices,* such as Microsoft Word and Adobe Photoshop, have access to any installed TWAIN Data Source (DS). The Image Capture application, and programs such as iPhoto that access its capabilities, have access to any installed DS as well as native ICA drivers.

Additional solutions
More solutions are available for scanning on Mac OS X. These solutions include using a dedicated scanning application or an Adobe Photoshop-compatible plug-in.
