Note
• The screens in this section are from Windows® XP. Screens on your PC may vary depending on your
operating system.
• If your PC is protected by a firewall, and you are unable to network print, network scan or PC Fax, you may
need to configure the firewall settings. If you are using the Windows® Firewall and you installed
MFL-Pro Suite from the CD-ROM, the necessary Firewall settings have already been made. If you did not
install from the CD-ROM, see Firewall settings (For Network users) on page 105 to configure your
Windows® Firewall. If you are using any other personal Firewall software, see the User’s Guide for your
software or contact the software manufacturer.
Using the Brother printer driver
1
A printer driver translates the data from your PC application, and using a page description language, converts
it into a format that can be understood by the printer/multi-function device.
You will find appropriate drivers on the CD-ROM supplied with the machine. Install those drivers by following
the Quick Setup Guide. You can also download the latest drivers from the Brother Solutions Center at:
http://solutions.brother.com/

Specifications of the Basic User’s Guide.) The printer driver supports N in 1, Watermark printing, Color
Enhancement technology and many other features.
Low Running Cost
Whenever a particular ink color requires replacement, you only have to replace that individual cartridge.
USB
The Universal Serial Bus interface provides fast communication with your PC.
Ethernet
The Ethernet interface lets your machine communicate with multiple PCs connected on a network.
Wireless LAN (IEEE802.11b/g/n)

Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory, or while scanning a
document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during PC printing.
However, when the machine is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the PC printing operation, and
then continues printing when copying or fax receiving has finished.

Color Enhancement (True2Life)
1
Checking the Color Enhancement (True2Life) option enables the True2Life feature. This feature analyzes
your image to improve its sharpness, white balance and color density. This process may take several minutes
depending on the size of the image and the specifications of your PC.
 Color Density
Adjusts the total amount of color in the image. You can increase or decrease the amount of color in an
image to improve a washed out or weak-looking picture.
 White Balance
Adjusts the hue of the white areas of an image. Lighting, camera settings and other influences will affect
the appearance of white. The white areas of a picture may be slightly pink, yellow or some other color. By
adjusting the white balance you can adjust those white areas.
 Brightness
Adjusts the brightness of the whole image. To lighten or darken the image, move the scroll bar to the right
or left.
 Contrast
Adjusts the contrast of an image. This will make darker areas darker and lighter areas lighter. Increase the
contrast when you want an image to be clearer. Decrease the contrast when you want an image to be more
subdued.
 Red
Increases the intensity of Red in the image to make the image redder.

Scanning
2
The scanning operations and the drivers used will be different depending on your operating system. The
machine uses a TWAIN compliant driver for scanning documents from your applications.
®
®
2
®
 (Windows XP/Windows Vista /Windows 7)
Two scanner drivers are installed. A TWAIN compliant scanner driver (See Scanning a document using
the TWAIN driver on page 34) and a Windows® Imaging Acquisition (WIA) driver (See Scanning a
document using the WIA driver (Windows® XP/Windows Vista®/Windows ® 7) on page 42).
Windows® XP/Windows Vista®/Windows ® 7 users can select either driver when scanning documents.
Note
• For ScanSoft™ PaperPort™12SE, see Using ScanSoft™ PaperPort™12SE with OCR by NUANCE™
on page 50.
• If your PC is protected by a firewall and is unable to network scan, you may need to configure the firewall
settings to allow communication through port number 54925 and 137. If you are using Windows® Firewall
and you installed MFL-Pro Suite from the CD-ROM, the necessary Firewall settings have already been
made. For more information, see Firewall settings (For Network users) on page 105.
Scanning a document using the TWAIN driver
2
The Brother MFL-Pro Suite software includes a TWAIN compliant scanner driver. TWAIN drivers meet the
standard universal protocol for communicating between scanners and applications. This means that you can
not only scan images directly into the PaperPort™12SE viewer that Brother included with your machine, but
you can also scan images directly into hundreds of other software applications that support TWAIN scanning.
These applications include popular programs like Adobe® Photoshop®, CorelDRAW® and many more.
Scanning a document into the PC

 Gray (Error Diffusion)
Use for photographic images or graphics. (Error Diffusion is a method for creating simulated gray images
without using true gray dots. Black dots are put in a specific pattern to give a gray appearance.)
 True Gray
Use for photographic images or graphics. This mode is more exact due to using up to 256 shades of gray.
38
Scanning
 256 Color
Uses up to 256 colors to scan the image.
 24bit Color
2
Uses up to 16.8 million colors to scan the image.
Although using 24bit Color creates an image with the most accurate color reproduction, the image file size
will be about three times larger than a file created using the 256 Color option. It requires the most memory
and has the longest transfer time.
Reduce Noise
2
You can improve and enhance the quality of your scanned images with this selection. The Reduce Noise
setting is available when using 24bit Color and scan resolutions of 300  300 dpi, 400  400 dpi or
600  600 dpi.
Auto Crop
2
You can scan multiple documents placed on the scanner glass. If you want to use Auto Crop, see Auto Crop
on page 37.

usually suitable for most images.
You can set the Brightness level by dragging the slide bar to the right or left to lighten or darken the image.
You can also enter a value in the box to set the level.
If the scanned image is too light, set a lower Brightness level and scan the document again. If the image is
too dark, set a higher Brightness level and scan the document again.
Note
The Brightness setting is only available when setting Scan Type to Black & White,
Gray (Error Diffusion), True Gray or 24bit Color.
Contrast
2
You can increase or decrease the contrast level by moving the slide bar to the right or left. An increase
emphasizes dark and light areas of the image, while a decrease reveals more details in gray areas. You can
also enter a value in the box to set the Contrast.
Note
The Contrast setting is only available when setting Scan Type to Gray (Error Diffusion), True Gray or
24bit Color.
When scanning photographs or other images for use in a word processor or other graphics application, try
different settings for the Resolution, Scan Type, Brightness and Contrast to see which setting best suits
your needs.

Using ScanSoft™ PaperPort™12SE with OCR by NUANCE™
2
Note
2
• ScanSoft™ PaperPort™12SE supports Windows® XP (SP3 or higher), XP Professional x64 Edition (SP3
or greater), Windows Vista® (SP2 or higher) and Windows ® 7 only.
• For Windows® 2000 (SP4 or higher) users, you can download ScanSoft™ PaperPort™11SE by Nuance™
during the installation of MFL-Pro Suite. See the Quick Setup Guide.
ScanSoft™ PaperPort™12SE for Brother is a document management application. You can use
PaperPort™12SE to view scanned documents.
PaperPort™12SE has a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use filing system that will help you organize your graphics
and text documents. It allows you to mix or ‘stack’ documents of different formats for printing, faxing or filing.
This section only introduces the basic functions of the software. For more details, see the ScanSoft™
Getting Started Guide. To view the complete ScanSoft™ PaperPort™12SE Getting Started Guide,
choose the Help ribbon and click Getting Started Guide. When you install MFL-Pro Suite, ScanSoft™
PaperPort™12SE for Brother is installed automatically. You can access ScanSoft™ PaperPort™12SE
through the ScanSoft™ PaperPort™12SE program group located in
Start/All Programs/Nuance PaperPort 12 on your PC.
Viewing items
2
ScanSoft™ PaperPort™12SE gives several ways to view items:
Desktop displays the item in the chosen folder with a thumbnail (a small graphic that shows each item in a
desktop or folder) or an icon.
You can see both PaperPort™12SE items (MAX files) and non-PaperPort™12SE items (files created using
other applications).
All graphical files (PaperPort™12SE's *.max and other files) will be displayed and include an icon that
indicates the application that the specific file type is associated or created with. Non-graphical files are
indicated by a small rectangular thumbnail and are not displayed as actual images.
50
Scanning
Image View displays a close-up of a single page. You can open a PaperPort™12SE item by clicking the
Open with Image View button on the Desktop ribbon.
As long as you have the appropriate application on your PC to display it, you can also open a nonPaperPort™12SE item by double-clicking it.
2
Organizing your items in folders
2
PaperPort™12SE has an easy-to-use filing system for organizing your items. The filing system consists of
folders and items that you choose to view in Desktop. An item can be a PaperPort™12SE item or a nonPaperPort™12SE item:
 Folders are arranged in a ‘tree’ structure in the Folder View. You use this section to choose folders and
view their items in Desktop.
 You can simply drag and drop an item onto a folder. When the folder is highlighted, release the mouse
button and the item is stored in that folder.
 Folders can be ‘nested’—that is, stored in other folders.
 When you double-click a folder, its contents (both PaperPort™12SE MAX files and non PaperPort™12SE
files) appear in Desktop.
 You can also use Windows® Explorer to manage the folders and items shown in Desktop.
Quick links to other applications
2
ScanSoft™ PaperPort™12SE automatically recognizes many other applications on your PC and creates a
‘working link’ to them.
The bar at the bottom of the PaperPort™12SE desktop shows which programs you can use with
PaperPort™12SE.
51
Scanning
To send an item from PaperPort™12SE to another program, simply drag and drop the item from the
PaperPort™12SE desktop to the program icon on the Send To bar. PaperPort™12SE automatically converts
the item to the preferred format.
If PaperPort™12SE does not automatically recognize one of the applications on your PC, you can manually
create a link using the New Link button on the Tools ribbon.
ScanSoft™ PaperPort™12SE with OCR lets you convert image text into text you
can edit
2
2
ScanSoft™ PaperPort™12SE can quickly convert a text document image into text that you can edit with a
word processing application.
PaperPort™12SE uses the optical character recognition software (OCR), which comes with
PaperPort™12SE. PaperPort™12SE can use your preferred OCR application if it is already on your PC. You
can convert the entire item, or by using the Copy Text button on the Items ribbon, you can choose only a
portion of the text to convert.
Dragging an item onto a word-processing link icon starts PaperPort™12SE’s built-in OCR application, or you
can use your own OCR application.
Importing items from other applications
2
As well as scanning items, you can bring items into PaperPort™12SE in a variety of ways and convert them
to PaperPort™12SE (MAX) files in several different ways:
 Print to the Desktop from another application, such as Microsoft® Word.
 Import files saved in other file formats, such as Windows® Bitmap (BMP) or Tagged Image File Format
(TIFF).
Exporting items into other formats
2
You can export or save PaperPort™12SE items in several popular file formats, such as BMP, JPEG, TIFF or
PDF.

 Black & White
Use for text or line art images.
 Gray (Error Diffusion)
Use for photographic images or graphics. (Error Diffusion is a method for creating simulated gray images
without using true gray dots. Black dots are put in a specific pattern to give the gray appearance.)
 True Gray
Use for photographic images or graphics. This mode is more exact because it uses up to 256 shades of
gray.
 256 Color
Uses up to 256 colors to scan the image.
 24bit Color
Uses up to 16.8 million colors to scan the image.
Although using 24bit Color creates an image with the most accurate color reproduction, the image file size
will be about three times larger than a file created using the 256 Color option. It requires the most memory
and has the longest transfer time.
