6) If you want to try the scanner software now with a flatbed scanner the read this tutorial : 

IMPORTANT: When scanning with a flatbed scanner leave a small space (about 1/4" is enough) between cards and between the scanner scan area border. This space is required to automatically crop and straighten the cards. Kronoscan will also use and keep a space around the cards so your potential buyers can see the card edges.  Details here.

Select USLetter or A4Letter paper size! A bug actually prevents our cropping algorithm to work if selected paper size is small. (fixed in release 0.9.14)

Once you have scanned cards you will get new buttons to manage your cards.

IMPORTANT: Never start the scanning process by clicking a "scan button" on your scanner because that will start windows default scanning application instead of Kronoscan. You must initiate the scanning with the "camera" button in Kronoscan software.
