Calibration
NOTE: This section only applies to the users
who have IT8 calibration targets.
The Microtek Scanner ICC Profiler (MSP) program
included with your ScanMaker i800 Plus is used to
calibrate your scanner to achieve consistent and
accurate color.
If the scanner you purchased contains IT8 calibration
kit, there should include two industry-standard IT8
color targets inside: a Reflective target (10 x 15-cm)
to calibrate the scanner for scanning photos, and a
Transparency target (6 x 7-cm) to calibrate the
scanner for scanning film.
Reflective target
You will be asked to calibrate your scanner the first
time you run ScanWizard Pro to try to scan. You
may skip calibration to proceed directly to scanning,
and then choose to come back at a later time to
perform calibration.
Transparency target
For more details on calibration, refer to the
ScanMaker i800 Plus Supplement and see the Using
the Microtek Scanner ICC Profiler section.
