Scan Resolution Guidelines
If you plan to enlarge a scanned image so you can print it at a larger size, you may need to increase the
resolution from the default resolution set by Epson Scan. Follow these guidelines to determine the
resolution setting you need:
• You will enlarge the image as you scan it.
If you will enlarge the image using Epson Scan's Target Size setting, you do not need to increase the
Resolution setting.
56
• You will scan the image at its original size but enlarge it later in an image-editing program.
Increase Epson Scan's Resolution setting in your scan. Increase the resolution by the same amount
you will increase the image size to retain a high image quality. For example, if the resolution is 300 dpi
(dots per inch) and you will double the image size later, change the Resolution setting to 600 dpi.
• You will scan the image at 100% or smaller size.
Select Epson Scan's Resolution setting based on how you will use the scanned image:
• Email/view on a computer screen/post on the web: 96 to 150 dpi
• Print/convert to editable text (OCR): 300 dpi
• Fax: 200 dpi

• Place it on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond the base of the product in all directions.

Ripple Patterns Appear in an Image
You may see a ripple pattern (called a moiré) in scanned images of printed documents. This is caused
by interference from differing pitches in the scanner's screen and your original's halftone screen. To
reduce this effect, adjust these Epson Scan settings (if available) and try scanning again:
• Select the Descreening setting.
• Select a lower Resolution setting.
Parent topic: Solving Scanned Image Quality Problems
Image is Scanned Upside-Down
Your product scans using the Auto Photo Orientation setting. This setting checks the preview image
for faces, the sky, and other features, and then correctly rotates the photo when it is scanned, if
necessary. If your photo is not oriented correctly using this option, deselect the Auto Photo Orientation
setting and scan again.

Note: Auto Photo Orientation will not work when you scan newspapers, magazines, documents,
illustrations, or line art, or images smaller than 2 inches (5.1 cm) on any side.
Parent topic: Solving Scanned Image Quality Problems
Scanned Image Colors Do Not Match Original Colors
Printed colors can never exactly match the colors on your computer 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).
Check the color matching and color management capabilities of your computer, display adapter, and the
software you are using to see if they are affecting the palette of colors you see on your screen.
To adjust the colors in your scanned image, adjust these Epson Scan settings (if available) and try
scanning again:
• Change the Image Type setting and experiment with different combinations of the next settings.
• Adjust the Tone Correction setting.
• Adjust the Auto Exposure setting.
• Click Customize, then select the Color tab and adjust the Display Gamma setting to match your
output device (monitor or printer).
