How to Use the Users Guide
This guide is the instruction manual for CanoCraft FS 3.6 scanning application
software for use with Canon film scanners. In addition to functioning as a standalone application program on the Windows platform, CanoCraft FS also serves as a
TWAIN driver in TWAIN-compliant application programs. With the exception of
program starting and file saving, the basic procedures for using CanoCraft FS as a
stand-alone program and TWAIN driver are virtually the same. This guide,
therefore, illustrates the procedures using CanoCraft FS as a stand-alone
application. To use the program as a TWAIN driver from within other applications,
please supplement this guide with the Windows instruction manual and the guides
accompanying your TWAIN-compliant applications.

Scanning Procedures
Although scanning procedures vary according to the image type (color, grayscale or
black and white), the basic procedures are the same. Read the following
procedures as a guideline for scanning.
Set the film type.
p. 29
Select a film type that matches the film in use from among the following
options: 35 mm color negatives/color positives/monochrome negatives or
IX240 color negatives/color positives/monochrome negatives.
Set the image type.
p. 30
For colour images, select [24-bit colour]. For grayscale images, select [8-bit
grayscale]. For black and white images, select [Black and White]. If
CanoCraft FS has been started as a TWAIN driver from within a TWAINcompliant application program, you can also [36-bit colour] for colour
images and [12-bit grayscale] for grayscale images.
Determine the image size and resolution.
pp. 32-36
Set the scan resolution, output resolution and magnification to suit your
requirements for the printing size and monitor size of the image.
Insert the film.
(Refer to the Quick Start Guide or electronic manual.)
Initiate the preview scan.
p. 37
Start off by previewing the image before initiating the final scan.
Adjust the color balance, halftone pattern or threshold values.
p. 40
If the preview image did not reproduce as well as expected, adjust the
coloring and brightness of a color image, or the shadows and highlights of a
grayscale image, or the threshold of a black and white image.
Select the area of the image to be included in the final scan.
p. 41
If you wish to crop the image, select the scan area by dragging the mouse
cursor.
Save (scan) the image.
p. 46
When CanoCraft FS is started from within Photoshop, the scanned image
cannot be saved. To save, close CanoCraft FS and save the file using the save
function in Photoshop.
27
Step 2 • Scanning
• 24-bit color and 36-bit color images are expressed in varying values of each
color: red, green and blue (RGB). 24-bit color images are expressed in 256
colors per RGB channel. 36-bit color images use 4096 colors. Use the 24-bit
color setting for most images unless you require particularly fine color
definition.
• Grayscale images are expressed in black, white or varying tones of gray. 8bit grayscale images are expressed in 256 tones. 12-bit grayscale images use
4096 tones.
• Black and white images are expressed in just two colors, white or black. The
threshold value determines the brightness value at which a particular pixel
is set to black or white.
28
Step 2 • Scanning
Selecting the Film Type
It is important to select the correct film type in the film type settings menu to
obtain the correct color balance in the scanned image.
Right-click the settings display area.
Click the [Settings] button or
[Settings] menu and [Film Type]
submenu.
Position the mouse cursor over an option and click to select it. The menu will close
and the new selection will appear in the settings display area.
Select from these options for 35 mm film.
For mounted slides, select the 35 mm color
positive setting.
Select from these options for IX240 film.
A check mark will appear beside the current selection
in this menu.
• If you are scanning several films of the same type consecutively, this setting
need only be set the first time.
• If the setting is saved, it can be used thereafter until it is changed.
• The current setting is displayed in the settings display area on the control
panel.
29
Step 2 • Scanning
Selecting the Image Type
The image type setting is used to select between 24bit color, grayscale or black and
white. Select an image type from the settings menu most suited to the type of film
and the way in which it will be used.
Right-click the settings
display area
Click the [Settings] button or click the
[Settings] menu and select [Image Type].
Position the mouse cursor over an option and click to select it. The menu will close
and the new selection will appear in the settings display area.
Scans at 8-bits per RGB channel. Use this setting for standard color images.
Scans at 12-bits per RGB channel when CanoCraft FS is started as a TWAIN
driver from a TWAIN-compliant application. Use this setting for
high-resolution color images.
Scans with 8-bit grayscale reproduction. Use this setting for standard
grayscale images.
Scans with 12-bit grayscale reproduction when CanoCraft FS is started as a
TWAIN driver from a TWAIN-compliant application. Use this setting when
high-resolution grayscale images are required.
Scans with black and white, two-color reproduction.
A check mark will appear beside the selected setting.
• The color image type setting cannot be selected when the film type is set to
monochrome film.
• At 2720 dpi, 35 mm color film scanned at the 36-bit color setting yields a file
approximately 58 megabytes. At the 24-bit color setting, it is approximately
29 megabytes; at the 12-bit grayscale setting, 19.6 megabytes; at the 8-bit
grayscale setting, 9.8 megabytes; and at the black and white setting, 1.2
megabytes.
• The 12-bit grayscale and 36-bit color settings are not available with the
CanoScan 2700F model.
30
Step 2 • Scanning
Determining the Image Format
The following five image types are available. Select the one best suited to the film
type and the intended use of the image.
24-Bit Color:
The image is expressed in 256 colors (8 bits) per RGB channel.
Select this setting to scan standard color films.
36-Bit Color:
(FS 2710 only)
The image is expressed in 4096 colors (12 bits) per RGB channel.
Select this setting for color films that require particularly high
definition.
8-Bit Grayscale: The image is expressed in 256 tones (black, white and 254 gray
shades). Select this setting for black and white films or when
monochrome images are required from color films.
12-Bit Grayscale: The image is expressed in 4096 tones (black,
(FS 2710 only)
white and 4094 gray shades). Select this setting
when particularly high definition grayscale
images are required.
Black and White: Images are expressed in two colors only, black
and white. The threshold value determines the
brightness value at which a particular pixel is set
to black or white.
• Attempting to scan images in the 12-bit grayscale or 36-bit color scanning
modes in application programs not compatible with these modes may cause
the programs to “hang.” Before attempting these modes, please confirm
that your application program is compatible. Photoshop 4.0 and later
versions are compatible (Photoshop LE is also compatible).
• Images scanned in 36-bit color with versions of Photoshop compatible with
36-bit color become 16-bit channel mode images.
• The 12-bit grayscale and 36-bit color scanning modes are not available
when CanoCraft FS 3.6 is used as a stand-alone application or when the
CanoScan 2700F film scanner is used.
• The 24-bit color and 36-bit color scanning modes are not available when the
film type is set to monochrome.
31
Step 2 • Scanning
Selecting Resolution and Magnification Settings
About Resolution and Magnification
The scanner reads the images on a film as a collection of dots that are assigned
values for brightness and tone. The density of these dots is referred to as the
resolution, and the resolution at which a film is scanned is called the scan
resolution.
The scan resolution should not be confused with the output resolution, which
determines the appearance of an image on a monitor or when output to a printer.
The ratio of the scan resolution to the output resolution is called the output
magnification. When both the scan and output resolution are the same, the
scanned image size and the output are the same size. When the output resolution
is lower than the scan resolution, the image is magnified, and when it is higher, the
image is reduced.

2”
Why does the image size change with the magnification? Let us answer with
an example having the output resolution set to printer (720 dpi). If you set the
scan resolution to 360 dpi (a magnification factor of 50%), the image will
shrink because only 360 dots are scanned per inch while 720 are required to
match the specification for the output resolution. The image size changes
because the density has been increased without a corresponding increase in
the number of scanned dots.

Data Volume Varies with Scan Resolution
As with magnification, the higher the scan resolution, the larger the resulting
image file. If the file size is too large, it can slow processing and may overload
your computer’s memory resources. To illustrate the difference in file size, we
show the results of a 35 mm film scanned in 24-bit color mode at the

• Changing the scan resolution enables you to select [Custom] in the output

35
Step 2 • Scanning
Determining the Input and Output Resolution and Output
Magnification
Under standard operating conditions, the output resolution is set by the output
device, such as the printer.
• Printing with Bubble Jets, Ink Jets and Other Color Printers
Set the output resolution to approximately half the printer resolution.
• Printing with Monochrome Printers and Color LBPs
Set the output resolution to the same value as the printer resolution.
• Display on a Computer Monitor
Set the output resolution to between 72 and 100 dpi. To expand the image,
use the magnification setting. The display size of the image will vary with the
resolution of the monitor.
• When printing in monochrome with printers such as the Canon BJC-4000
Series, the image is expressed using 360 dots per inch. However, color
printing is expressed with three colors, including cyan, magenta and yellow,
a process completely separate from monochrome printing. Accordingly, set
the output resolution for a printer such as the Canon BJC-4000 Series to the
same value as the printer resolution for monochrome printing, but set it to
approximately half the printer resolution (approximately 180 dpi) for color
printing.
• Limit resolution settings to the greatest extent possible. Setting the output
resolution above the printer resolution has practically no effect on the
quality of the printed image. Indiscriminately elevating the resolution not
only raises the file size, it takes longer to process and print. In addition, it
may be difficult to open images because of insufficient computer memory
resources or because of the memory settings of application programs.
36
Step 2 • Scanning
Previewing
Once you have inserted the film, selected a film and image type and adjusted the
resolution settings, preview the image and specify the scan area.

software, select a file format that can be read by that program.
Standard Windows format:
Generic image file formats:
Compressed file formats:
Other formats:
Bitmap (.BMP)
TIFF (.TIF), PC Paintbrush (.PCX)
JPEG (.JPG)
FlashPix (.FPX)
The period followed by three letters is called the file extension, which
indicates the file format. The file extension is automatically appended to the
file name when the file is saved.

Step 3 • Adjusting Images
Image Adjustment Commands
Scanned image data is loaded as dots into CanoCraft FS. Each dot is assigned
various brightness and color values (tones). CanoCraft FS is equipped with several
color correction functions that use or change these values to adjust image
brightness and coloring.
Adjusting Highlights and Shadows (Easy Mode: pp. 55, 57)
Corrects the brightness of the entire image. Use this
method if the original document is too bright or dark.
This method can be used on these image types:
8-Bit Grayscale/24-Bit Color
Adjusting the Color Balance (Easy Mode: p. 56)
Corrects the color balance of the entire image. Use this
method if certain color tones are too strong or weak
relative to others.
This method can be used on these image types:
24-Bit Color
Adjusting the Histogram (Expert Mode: p. 58)
A histogram shows the concentrations of dots at
particular brightness levels. Halftone gradations can be
smoothened by adjusting the highest level of
brightness (highlights) or darkness (shadows).
This method can be used on these image types:
8-Bit Grayscale/12-Bit Grayscale/24-Bit Color/36-Bit Color
Adjusting Brightness/Contrast (Expert Mode: p. 61)
The brightness setting changes the luminescence of the
entire image. The contrast setting adjusts the
difference between the light and dark areas. Use this
method if the original document is too bright, too dark
or out of focus.
This method can be used on these image types:
8-Bit Grayscale/12-Bit Grayscale/24-Bit Color/36-Bit Color
52
Step 3 • Adjusting Images
Adjusting Gamma Values (Expert Mode: p. 63)
Match the brightness of the image data to the color
characteristics of the display device by changing the
gamma values of the data. Use this method to match
the scanned image tones on the display to the tones of
the original image.
This method can be used on these image types:
8-Bit Grayscale/12-Bit Grayscale/24-Bit Color/36-Bit Color
Adjusting Tone Curves (Expert Mode: p. 65)
Correct the brightness of the image by adjusting the
balance between highlights and shadows in the input
and output values of the image data. As a highly
selective method, adjusting the tone curve limits the
effect on the overall image and can smoothen halftone
gradients more finely than the histogram method.
This method can be used on these image types:
8-Bit Grayscale/12-Bit Grayscale/24-Bit Color/36-Bit Color
Adjusting Color Balance (Expert Mode: p. 67)
Correct the balance between the three primary colors
in a color image: red, green and blue (RGB). Use this
method when a particular color tone is too strong or
weak.
This method can be used on these image types:
24-Bit Color/36-Bit Color
Adjusting Threshold Values (Easy/Expert Mode: p. 69)
Adjust the level of brightness at which the original
image data is represented by either black or white.
This method can be used on this image type:
Black and White

How to Adjust a Histogram
To change the contrast in an image, the distribution of data between shadows and
highlights can be adjusted by dragging the shadow and highlight marks at the
bottom of the histogram. All of the data lying to the outside (left) of the shadow
mark is changed to a zero value and all of the data lying to the outside (right) of
the highlight mark is changed to a 255 value. The examples below show
adjustments to improve the contrast.
It is generally advisable to use the Auto Correction feature, which is explained
below, to adjust contrast settings. The Auto Correction feature will perform the
adjustments shown.

Click the white pointer tool or black pointer tool button to change the mouse
pointer to an eyedropper. Position that eyedropper over an area of the preview
image and click to set either the highlights or shadows, respectively, equal to the
level of that area.
• To improve the reproduction of dark areas, change the value of the
shadows in the histogram tab from [1] to [0], then scan. Be aware, however,
that the 'noise' of the scanned image may increase. For your reference, the
default setting for shadows is [1].

61
Step 3 • Adjusting Images
Adjusting Brightness
This method adjusts the brightness of the entire image, which is effective for
images that are too bright or too dark overall. One must be careful, however, not
to raise the respective values too high or low to avoid creating excessive highlights
or obscuring shadows.
Brightness = 128 (Standard)
Brightness = 190
Brightness = 80
Adjusting Contrast
Contrast is the degree of deviation between light and dark areas. Raising the
contrast accentuates the difference between the light and dark areas. Lowering
the contrast reduces the difference between the two.
Contrast = 128 (Standard)
Contrast = 170
Contrast = -100
Raising the contrast of pictures with a blurred focus is effective in adding clarity to
the image. Raising the contrast too high, however, will obscure the dark portions
or create excessive highlights.

Step 3 • Adjusting Images
Adjusting Gamma Values (Expert Mode)
In expert mode, the gamma values of the display can be adjusted to 24-Bit Color,
36-Bit Color, 8-Bit Grayscale and 12-Bit Grayscale images. This method is suitable
for realizing colors on the monitor that are more closely matched to the original

63
Step 3 • Adjusting Images
Setting the Gamma Value Correctly
Different display models tend to reproduce color tones in characteristic ways that
are expressed with a gamma value. Most displays fall within a range from 1.4 to
2.2, which reproduces tones that are slightly darker than the original. To faithfully
reproduce the original tones, it is necessary to correct the display’s gamma value
with CanoCraft FS.
The program normally adjusts the display’s gamma value to 1.8, but if your display
does not operate at this value, you will need to adjust it.
Display Gamma Value vs. CanoCraft FS Gamma Value
CanoCraft FS and your display each have their own distinct gamma value,
which is defined as the coefficient each program or device uses to match its
output data to its input data. For CanoCraft FS, the input data is the image
data it receives from the scanner and the output data is the data it sends to
the display.
For the display, the input data is the image data it receives from CanoCraft FS
and its output is the image that appears on its screen. CanoCraft FS
automatically calculates its gamma value as the inverse of the display gamma
value that you specify. If, for example, the display gamma value is set to 1.8,
the scanner gamma value is automatically set to 0.56.
• Please read the documents shipped with your display or contact the
manufacturer’s customer service department to obtain the correct gamma
value for your particular display model.

Step 3 • Adjusting Images
Adjusting a Tone Curve (Expert Mode)
In expert mode, you can balance the input and output data by editing the tone
curve, a graphical depiction of the relationship of highlights and shadows in 24-Bit
Color, 36-Bit Color, 8-Bit Grayscale and 12-Bit Grayscale images. You can edit the
master tone curve or the individual tone curves for each RGB channel. This method

Step 3 • Adjusting Images
Adjusting Threshold Settings (Easy/Expert Mode)
In easy mode or expert mode, the threshold tab can be used to adjust the threshold
value (the demarcation between black and white) of black and white images.
Images are collections of data assigned varying brightness values. 24-Bit Color and 8Bit Grayscale images express the brightness with values ranging from 0 to 255. When
a black and white image is processed, brightness is expressed with only two values,
black (0) or white (255). Accordingly, a point has to be determined at which a dot is
determined to be either black or white. This point is called the threshold value. By
changing the threshold value, you can alter the appearance of an image as shown
below. The default setting for CanoCraft FS is 128.

About Film Types (CanoScan 2700F Users)
The film base color of color negative films, generally used to output prints on
photographic paper, varies between manufacturers and individual products.
As a result, you must select the correct film type when setting the exposure
manually to achieve the correct coloration. In contrast, there is no need to
specify the film type for color positive films, which are suited to projecting
images onto screens or creating printing plates, because the colors are
reproduced in direct correlation to those of the photographic subject.
Dialog for the CanoScan 2700F
With the [Auto Color Balance] off, select a film type from
A to D and drag the slider to adjust the exposure setting.
Please refer to the List of Film Types in the Appendix for
the correct film type setting for each film product (p. 124).
71
Adjusting the Focus

Glossary
8-Bit Grayscale Image
An 8-bit image type utilizing only the brightness data from an image,
which is then expressed in black, white and 256 shades of gray.
12-Bit Grayscale Image
An 12-bit image type utilizing only the brightness data from an image,
which is then expressed in black, white and 4096 shades of gray.
24-Bit Color Image
Images scanned as red, green and blue light and reproduced in gradients of
256 tones per color (8-bit). A color image can be expressed in up to 16.7
million color tones (256 x 256 x 256).
35 MM Film
A widely used standard film format. There are several types of film using
this format, including color and monochrome, which also come as a
negative or positive film. Of these, color negatives are the most commonly
used.
36-Bit Color Image
Images scanned as red, green and blue light and reproduced in gradients of
4096 tones per color (12-bit). A color image can be expressed in up to 68.7
billion color tones (4096 x 4096 x 4096). On a computer display no
difference can be discerned between 24-bit and 36-bit color.
IX240
A new film system and format that is compact and easy to use. This system
permits the automatic imprinting of such information as the shooting date/
time and exposure setting and incorporates functions that make it easy to
display images on computers and TVs.
IX240 Film
IX240 film is a format that is smaller than 35 mm film. The film is 24 mm
wide and images are 17 x 30 mm. IX240 negative films are generally
developed and returned to the photographer in the original film cartridge.
126
Appendices
Black and White
An image type utilizing only the highlight and shadow data from an
image, which is expressed in only two tones using the size of dot groupings
and density of either tone to express the image details. There are many
different standard patterns (dither patterns) that can be used to express an
image.
Brightness
The brightness of data scanned from a film. Raising the brightness value
makes an image brighter, lowering it makes it darker.
Color Balance
The balance of color tones in an image. The color balance of an image is
adjusted by changing the relative ratios of red, green and blue or cyan,
yellow, magenta and black.
Color Image
Images scanned as red, green and blue light and reproduced in gradients of
256 tones per color (8-bit). A color image can be expressed in up to 16.7
million color tones (256 x 256 x 256).
ColorGear
A proprietary Canon color management system that produces consistent
coloring between input and output devices, such as a scanner and
computer display.
Contrast
The difference in highlights and shadows when an image is scanned.
Raising the contrast produces a sharply defined image, lowering it
produces a softer, less focused image.
Dither Pattern
The arrangement of dots used to express data converted from the halftone
values of the original image into only two colors, black and white. Dither
patterns using groups of 8 x 8 dots (64) can be expressed as squares, circles,
triangles or other shapes, expressing the details if the image by varying the
size and density of groupings.
Dithering
One method of using only black and white to express halftones. After each
dot of the image has been converted to black or white using the halftone
threshold, the difference in brightness between the original and postconversion image is averaged and applied to the entire image, expressing it
in shadows and highlights.
127
Appendices
Dot
The fundamental element of a letter, object or image, which is arranged in
vertical and horizontal groups. When scanning a film, the number of dots
per inch (dpi) determines the resolution (or density) of a letter, object or
image.
Film Base Color
Color negative film that has been developed has an overall orange tint.
This is called the film base color. This tint is applied to the film to eliminate
unnecessary light and reproduce colors at their best. Each manufacturer
uses a slightly different film base color for each of their products. As a
result, the scanner must compensate for these differences to reproduce
colors faithfully.
Gamma Correction
A setting to make the brightness of image data consistent between the
original film (input value) and the computer display (output value) or any
further output devices, such as a printer. The relationship between the
input and output is called the gamma value. A value of 1 represents output
that equals the input. A gamma value of less than one, indicates that the
output is brighter than the original and values over one indicate that the
output is darker. The graphical representation of the relationship is called
the gamma curve (or tone curve). (p. 65)
Gamma Curve
See gamma correction.
Grayscale
An (8-bit) image type utilizing only the brightness data from an image,
which is then expressed in black, white and 256 shades of gray.
Halftone
Color tones between the extremes of black and white. In black and white
images, halftones are simulated with dithering or diffusion techniques.
Histogram
A graph that shows the distribution of shadows and highlights in an image.
An image file contains data with varying brightness values. The brightness
values range from shadows to highlights, which are assigned values
ranging from 0 to 255.
128
Appendices
Image File
An image that has been expressed as a collection of dots assigned varying
color and brightness values that has been converted into a data format
that can be read by a computer. The fundamental structure of an image file
is a bitmap, the horizontal and vertical arrangement of the dot
information, which is supplemented by other data in popular image
formats, such as the TIFF, JPEG and BMP formats.
Resolution
The density of the dots that comprise an image expressed as a collection of
dots. The fineness or coarseness of an image is expressed as the number of
dots per inch (dpi).
RGB
An acronym for the “three base tones of light,” red, green and blue, used
in varying combinations to reproduce the full spectrum of colors on
monitors and other output devices. The scanner detects red, green and
blue light reflected from the original film with its sensors. Color printers
use the complementary colors to RGB, namely cyan, magenta, yellow and
black (CYMK) to express colors. Cyan, yellow and magenta are referred to
as the “three base tones of color.”
Scan
The process whereby a scanner is used to read information off an original
document or image. In CanoCraft FS, clicking the [Save] or [Scan] button
causes the scanner to scan a film using various settings, such as resolution,
brightness, color balance and special effects, and to save the resulting
image as a file in the specified location.
Threshold
When an image is expressed using only two colors, black or white, the
threshold is the dividing point at which the original data is assigned either
a black or white value.
Tone Curve
See Gamma Correction.
TWAIN
The standard application programming interface for input devices, such as
image scanners. If both the input device and software comply with this
standard, the two are compatible regardless of the manufacturer or model
type.
