The Visioneer PhotoPort 7700 USB Scanner is an instrument utilized for organizing pictures and documents. The PhotoPort 7700 USB incorporates the Visioneer OneTouch technology that uses express digital camera card readers. This makes it easy for users to scan paper photos or transfer digital photos to the computer. The Users can simply insert the CompactFlash, SmartMedia memory card or the IBM Microdrive from the digital camera to automatically transmit images to the ScanSoft PaperPort exclusive software application. Users can also click on the Photoport 7700 button to upload images to PhotoWorks and get economical and outstanding prints. The OneTouch Prints button routinely scans traditional pictures or transports images from users' digital camera's memory card and delivers them to the OneTouch PhotoWorks software application. The OneTouch PhotoWorks software allows zooming, rotating, cropping and the enlargement of pictures up to 8'x12'. The pictures can also be uploaded with the click of a mouse.

The scanner has an optical resolution of 600 x 1200 dpi and 42-bit color depth. It also has five 'OneTouch' buttons for copying, storing, emailing, as well as faxing images and uploading them to a website.
