How do I scan pictures from an HP printer-scanner to my MacBook Pro?

    As Dalsan suggested check on the HP page if a driver is required. In most cases the driver also comes with a scan utility which will allow you to scan.

    Other then that it depends on the application you have available.
    In Photoshop up to CS5.5 you can find the scanner within the File > Import menu.
    In Photoshop CS6 or CC you can find the scanner in the same menu assuming the driver is compatible.
    Most scanners should also work with the Image Capture application that ships with OS X. It should be listed on the left side as a Device.

    If you go to the HP Support website and check for drivers for your printer, there may be Mac compatible drivers you can install. Let us know if you have trouble.
