Sorry traceymarie602002, I don't know which scanner or software you have installed, but basically you put the picture in to your scanner face down, close the lid, bring up your scanning software, go to File > Acquire > Image, or hit the scan button if your scanner has one. You then get a number of options concerning which way the image is scanned. Choose to scan in colour, and choose a resolution of about 150dpi, if the person receiving it is not going to print it, about 300 dpi if they are going to print it. Save the scanned image and send it via email. Your scanner might have a "scan to email" option were it basically does all that automatically.
