Q:
How can I remove dust marks from my originals as I scan them?
A:
Using the Dust Removal feature in EPSON Scan, you can virtually "clean" the dust marks from your originals as you scan them.

Note:
  • Before scanning your originals, carefully remove any dust from your original(s).


  • Do not use Dust Removal to scan originals that do not contain dust or scratch marks; otherwise your scanned image may be distorted or blurred.
See one of these sections for instruction on removing dusk marks from your original(s).
