Kooka Help

I'm trying to scan some photo's, When I installed Opensuse 10.2 it detected the scanner and installed the drivers for it. But when I try to scan the photo it includes the white background in the scan image of the back of the scanner. Is there anyway to set Kooka so that all that is int he image is the photo and not the white. Example instead of the image being the size of a photo it ends up being the size of an A4 sheet of paper as it includes all the white background from the scanner. Do I make sense, lol.

I believe this is normal behaviour. When you hit preview, it scans through the whole length of the scanner and shows what it scanned - including the blank space around your photo. Then you make a selection around your object on the preview window and hit scan (or whatever the button is called - I don't have it in front of me right now) - now it only commits the scan to the selected area. Is that what you meant?
