Unfortunately this is not an automatic scanning setup. The only way to scan in 2000 photos is one at a time. There are dozens of programs, both free and not, that will let you scan. You also should have some default programs on your Macbook that will let you scan and save as JPG's or PNG's.

I wish there was an automatic way to do this, but there isn't. Anything automatic will need to be done using different equipment.
