How do I use Image Capture to wirelessly scan from Brother MFC-490cw flatbed to my Mac OS X? I go to Image Capture and get an Overview scan, but then cannot actually scan the image next. Wher

To the right of the scan overview, there should be a pop-up list named Auto Selection. If it's set to off, then you should either select an option from there or select which part of the overview image to be scanned yourself by clicking and selecting the image.
