Scanners are not really dependent on the graphic software or vice versa. You can simply scan using scanner software and import to graphic program. You can do a direct import from your graphics program but I prefer the first method. I have a epson V750 and a V600. The 600 will work for most. I think it's the cheapest epson with the digital ice tech is the 600 you an find from $160-$200. The epson software has abilities that your graphics software can't do.
