    Preposition onto VS into

    Recently I came across a sentence:
    Christy scanned the picture onto her computer.
    Is it possible to say:
    Christy scanned the picture into her computer.

    I think it is possible according to the following:
    'Documents are scanned into a computer and then converted to electronic form.'── quoted from http://www.macmillandictionary.com/d...british/scan_1
