TWAIN Standard Introduction
TWAIN is an industrial standard that was defined by the TWAIN Working Group. It includes the specification, data source manager and sample code. TWAIN links applications and image acquisition devices (such as photo scanners and digital cameras). Without TWAIN, you have to do much work if you need to process a scanned image from image acquisition devices in VB.NET applications. You have to save the image to local file at first, then open target VB.NET image scanning application to locate the image to the application. But nowadays, almost all image processing software are compatible with TWAIN, like our .NET TWAIN Scanning Add-On for VB.NET. If your software supports TWAIN, access to any TWAIN hardware device installed on the system is available with TWAIN Acquire command. Thus, an acquired image can be placed into the image software without saving it to local file.
