Digital ICE Technology is a hardware-based dust removal
method that is more accurate than the Dust Removal feature.
Digital ICE Technology can remove dust or scratch marks
without affecting the image composition. However, it takes
longer to scan using Digital ICE Technology and also uses more
of your system resources. For faster (but less accurate) dust
removal, try removing dust marks using the Dust Removal
feature.

Removing Dust and Scratch Marks

Using the Dust Removal feature in Epson Scan, you can
virtually “clean” the dust marks from your originals as you scan

Fixing Backlit Photos
Using the Backlight Correction feature in Epson Scan, you can
remove shadows from photos that have too much background
