Selected FAQ

Q:
The scanned colors differ from the original colors when using Epson Scan. What should I do?
A:
Try the following:
  • Make sure the Image Type setting is correct.


  • Click Configuration, select the Color tab, and change the Display Gamma setting to match your output device, such as a monitor or printer, in the Color menu.


  • Adjust the Auto Exposure setting in Professional Mode. Also try selecting a different Tone Correction setting. See Adjusting the Scanned Image.


  • Click Configuration, select the Color tab, and select Color Control and Continuous auto exposure in the Color menu.


  • Click Configuration, select the Color tab, and click Recommended Value to return the Auto Exposure setting to the default.


  • Make sure to enable the Embed ICC Profile setting. In the File Save Settings window, select JPEG or TIFF as the Type setting. Click Options, then select the Embed ICC Profile check box. To access the File Save Settings window, click the File Save Settings icon to the right of the scan button.


  • Check the color matching and color management capabilities of your computer, display adapter, and software. Some computers can change the palette of colors on your screen.


  • Windows: Use the color management system for your computer, ICM. Add a color profile that matches your monitor to improve on-screen color matching. Exact color matching is very difficult. Check your software and monitor documentation for information on color matching and calibration.


  • Mac OS X: Use the color management system for your computer, ColorSync. Exact color matching is very difficult. Check your software and monitor documentation for information on color matching and calibration.


  • Printed colors can never exactly match the colors on your monitor because printers and monitors use different color systems: monitors use RGB (red, green, and blue) and printers typically use CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black).
