2. TWAIN
2.1 TWAIN
TWAIN is the specification that defines the standard software protocol and application
programming interface (API) for data exchange between a software application program and an
image input device such as the image scanner.
[TWAIN development background]
In the past, development of a new scanner inevitably required the development of a compatible
driver and a sample (demonstration) program exclusively designed for the new scanner. As the
scanner is upgraded, the driver may need to be upgraded as well to maintain its compatibility
with the upgraded scanner. Therefore, the use is most likely to be restricted to one specific
scanner model to avoid the complication of learning new operation methods and replacing the
peripheral driver, etc., involved in scanner replacement.
In view of the incompatibility among different scanners and peripheral equipment and the
accompanying inconvenience, there was a demand for standardization of the related hardware
and software, and TWAIN was established as a result.
The user may now choose among all the input devices and software (driver or application
programs) conforming to the TWAIN standard, and configure a most suitable system for himself,
without being restricted to the products of a certain series or a certain manufacturer.
2.2 TWAIN Application
TWAIN mainly applies to the following three software components:
• Application software
‚ Source manager
ƒ Source
The components are related to each other as shown below.

4.3 Displaying Driver Information
♦ Image scanner name
The model name, option port name, and capacity of internal scanner memory (in units of
megabytes) of the connected image scanner are displayed.
If no image scanner is connected, this field is blank.
To change the selected scanner, click the [Select ...] button to display a list of connected
scanners and select a scanner from the list.
The type of IPC option board is displayed if an image-processing option board is installed in
the scanner.
IPC-3/3D may not be detected normally, as it is affected by the version number of the
machine type and device. In this case, "IPC2" is displayed.
♦ Preview window
The preview window is used to display the temporary image of read data and for setting the
"Scanning Area."
For settings, see "Scanning Area" later in this manual. Also see the description of the
[Preview] button later in this manual.
♦ Ruler
The large divisions are labeled as "Unit". The scale also varies with the selected scanner.
♦ Message line
The message line is the bottom line of the dialog in which a brief explanation of an input
item or a setting item is displayed when the mouse cursor is moved over the item.
10
♦ Data size
The approximate amount of data per image when data is scanned in the present option.
Note
This value is the amount of uncompressed data. The size of the stored file will differ from
this value and is usually smaller if image compression is chosen and the image is
compressed.
4.4 Setting Information on Image Scanning
♦ Current side
When a scanner that allows duplex scanning is used, specifies the page which sets the image
scanning information.
To scan using the same settings as those for "Front side" and "Back side," clear the checks in
the "Individual Setting" checkbox on the "Front" and "Back" tabs. A single "Duplex" tab
will be displayed at the left so that the same image scanning information can be set for
"Front side" and "Back side."
To scan using different settings for "Front side" and "Back side," check the "Individual
Setting" checkbox on the "Front" and "Back" tabs. Two tabs, "Front" and "Back," will be
displayed at the left. Select each tab and enter the desired settings.
This is only effective when ADF (Duplex) is selected for the method of paper feed. For
scanner types which permit duplex scanning, see "Relevant Image Scanner Specification" in
the Appendix.
♦ Resolution
Specifies the number of pixels (dots) per inch.
Select a fixed resolution from the list or [Custom].
High resolution requires more memory.
The supported resolution depends on the type of scanner and the options installed. See
"Relevant Image Scanner Specification" in the Appendix.
11
♦ Paper Size
Selects a paper size corresponding to the size of the document to be scanned.
Select a standard paper size from the list or [Custom]. If [Custom] is selected, the "Custom
Paper Size Setting" dialog appears. Enter the size of the document to be scanned.
Some paper sizes may not be accepted by your device. See "Relevant Image Scanner
Specification" in Appendix.
Figure Custom paper size setting dialog
To specify a custom paper size, use the slider or enter the paper size directly. The applicable
unit here is the unit specified under [Option]-[Generic]-[Unit/Scaling].
♦ Scanning Area
Specifies the start position, width and length for the image scan. The maximum allowable
size is the paper size selected previously.
In addition, the minimum size is 1.000 inch, 26 millimeters, or pixels (number of dots per
inch) according to the unit that has been set.
"Left":
The left end of the scan area on the scanned document (X coordinate)
"Top":
The top end of the scan area or the scanned document (Y coordinate)
"Width": The width of the scan area
"Length": The length of the scan area
These values are related to one another in the following way:
0 ≤ left end coordinate < (paper width - minimum scan area size)
0 ≤ top end coordinate < (paper length - minimum scan area size)
Minimum value ≤ width ≤ (paper width - left end coordinate)
Minimum value ≤ length ≤ (paper length - top end coordinate)
12
♦ Scan Type
Selects the feeding device.
The image scanner uses a document bed called the flat bed as well as an automatic document
feeder (ADF) for feeding scanned document. The ADF usually enables the documents to be
scanned only once. The flat bed allows scanning the same documents repeatedly.
♦ Flatbed
Reads a document placed on the flat bed of the device.
♦ ADF (Simplex)
Reads the document on the device's automatic document feeder (ADF). Here, only one side
is read.
♦ ADF (Duplex)
To scan both the front and the back of a page, select this option.
If this option is selected, the document is scanned in the "front to back to front to back ..."
order.
This option can be used only for scanner models that support duplex scanning.
The "Duplex Function" requires that the calling application supports "continuous scan." If
the application does not support "continuous scan," only the data for the front side of the
page is passed to the application.
Some scanner models do not support this option. See "Relevant Image Scanner
Specification" in the Appendix.
♦ Long page (front)
To scan the entire side of a long page whose length exceeds the vertical size of an A3 sheet,
select this option.
The front side and back side can be specified using the same method used for ADF.
If this option is selected, the "Paper Size Setting" dialog box opens. Specify the size of the
document to be scanned.
In this mode, however, the preview window cannot be displayed and the scanning area
cannot be specified.
Scanner models that do not support this option do not display the "Scan Type" selection item.
13
♦ Long page (front and backside)
In the same case as that for scanning the front of a long page, this option is selected in order
to scan the entire side of a long page whose length exceeds the vertical size of an A3 sheet.
If this option is selected, the document is scanned in the "front to back to front to back…"
order.
Paper feeding method that is to be supported varies with the type of scanner. See "Relevant
Image Scanner Specification" in the Appendix.
Note
To specify duplex scanning, the number of copies designated should be based on the
number of pages, not the number of paper sheets . In other words, one original with a
front and back is regarded as two pages.
♦ Image Mode
Selects an image mode for scanning the image.
Select a corresponding image mode from the list.
Black & White
Scans data by using the fixed threshold binary, black-and-white. Distinguishes black
from white by the setting in the "Threshold" of "Scanning Parameter." This scanning
mode is suitable for scanning line drawings and text documents.
Halftone (Dither)
Scans data using the halftone processing, with dithering or error diffusion. Uses the
patterns set in "Halftone" to simulate data in black-and-white. Selection of built-in
dithered patterns or error diffusion (not supported by some device models) is allowed.
This scanning mode is suitable for scanning images containing light and shadow such as
a photograph.
Gray scale
Scans data using 256-level monochrome gray scale. Light and shade in photographs can
be represented with greater fidelity. This scanning mode employs far more memory
than the Black & White mode.
Some versions of the scanner do not support this scanning mode. For details contact the
retail store where the device was purchased.
Color
Scans data using 24 bits color. This mode is suitable for scanning color photograph and
employs far more memory that Gray scale mode.
Some versions of the scanner do not support this scanning mode. For details contact the
retail store where the device was purchased.
Automatic separation
14
This option specifies whether to distinguish line drawing from photograph image during
scanning.
If this option is selected, the line drawing part is scanned using "Black & White," and
the photograph part is scanned using "halftone". This information is most suitable for
documents containing both photographs, and line drawings or text.
SEE (Selectable edge enhancement)
Line drawing and photograph image are scanned using "halftone." Then, only line
drawing part is highlighted.
This scanning mode is suitable for emphasizing only characters in the documents that
consists of characters and photographs.
Depending on the model of the scanner, this function may not be supported. For details,
refer to "Relevant Image Scanner Specification" in Section 9, Appendix.
♦ Black & White
Specifies the processing method when "Black & White" is specified in "Image Mode".
Simple Slice
Executes simple binary processing based on the "Threshold" setting.
Auto (IPC, DTC)
To enable the auto binary function of the image scanner, specify this option.
If this option is selected, the "Threshold" setting will be disabled.
In addition, auto binary has two modes: "IPC Mode" and "DTC Mode." These modes
can be set using the "Advance" dialog box.
"DTC Mode", however, is limited to the image processing options. Therefore, only
scanner models that have image processing options support "DTC Mode." See
"Relevant Image Scanner Specification" in the Appendix.
♦ Halftone
Selects the halftone pattern for halftone scanning from the built- in pattern list.
Select the desired halftone pattern for displaying the obtained image. This setting is
effective when "Halftone" or "Automatic Separation" are selected in "Image Mode".
Dither Pattern 0
Executes pattern processing that is suitable for scanning a dark photograph.
Dither Pattern 1
Executes pattern processing that is suitable for scanning a dark-colored document
containing both text and photographs.
15
Dither Pattern 2
Executes pattern processing that is suitable for scanning a light photograph.
Dither Pattern 3
Executes pattern processing that is suitable for scanning a light-colored document
containing both text and photographs.
Download Pattern
Executes processing using the dithered download pattern specified in the dithered
download file (described later). Some scanner models do not support this function. See
"Image Scanner Specification" in Appendix.
Error Diffusion
Error Diffusion minimizes the difference between the pixel density of the scanned image
and the pixel density of the printed image to create better reproduction of a scanned
photograph.
Some scanner models do not support this function. See "Relevant Image Scanner
Specification" in Appendix.
♦ Scanning Parameters
For fine scan adjustments.
Since there is no fixed set of values, set by trial and error.
♦ Brightness:
Sets the brightness of the overall image.
Specify the brightness with a number in the range of 1 (bright) to 255 (dark).
To brighten the overall image, decrease the value of the setting. To darken the overall
image, increase the value.
This parameter can be set if "Halftone" or "Automatic Separation" is selected for "Image
Mode."
♦ Threshold:
Sets the threshold value by which the black and the white of black-and-white images are
distinguished. Specify a number in the range of 1 (bright) to 255 (dark). This parameter
can be set only if "Black & White" is specified for "Image Mode."
In addition, if "Auto Binary" is selected, the scanner will automatically use the
appropriate threshold value. As a result, the set value cannot be changed.
16
In addition, if "Auto Binary" is selected, the scanner will automatically use the
appropriate threshold value. As a result, the set value cannot be changed.
If the light color in the scanned document is read as white, increase the threshold value.
To eliminate light- colored areas in the scanned document, decrease this value.
17
♦ Contrast:
Sets the contrast of light and shadow in a scanned image.
Specify the contrast with a number in the range of 1 (low [soft]) to 255 (high [sharp]).
The contrast can be set if "Gray Scale" is selected in "Image Mode."
If this value is increased, the dark part of the image is shown darker and the light part is
shown lighter.
Some scanner models do not support this function. See "Relevant Image Scanner
Specification" in Appendix.
4.5 Specifying Driver Operation
♦ [Preview]
Reads in a preliminary image based on set values, and displays the image in the preview
window.
Before actual scanning, the preview function can be used to display the entire document for
specifying the desired scan area.
This function is available only on devices that support the use of a flat bed. Some models do
not support this function. See "Relevant Image Scanner Specification".
♦ [Scan]
Scans the specified scan range based on set values.
The following "progress indicator" is displayed during scanning to show the progress of the
scan operation. To stop scanning, click the [Cancel] button.

After the special paper is detected, scanning stops. The data on the special paper is
excluded and will not be transferred to the application.
25
♦ Double Feed Detection
This option detects a double feed (occurs when two or more documents are sent) based on
the set condition.
If a double feed is detected when this setting has been turned on, the device will stop and an
error message output.
None
Double feed detection is not performed.
Hardware Setting
A double feed is detected based on the device setting.
Check thickness
The thickness of the transmitted document is checked by the sensor in the device. A
double feed is detected by detecting changes in the thickness when more than one
document is sent.
Check length
The length of the transmitted document is checked by the sensor in the device. A double
feed is detected by detecting changes in the length when more than one document is sent.
Check thickness and length
The thickness and length of the transmitted document are checked.
The detection accuracy can be improved by using [Check thickness] for continuous scanning
of forms that have different lengths and [Check length] for scanning of forms that have
different thicknesses.
♦ Blank page skip
This option skips blank pages (blank pages or completely black pages) during ADF
continuous scanning.
For blank pages, use the [White Dots Ratio] slider to set the skip condition. For black pages,
use the [Black Dots Ratio] slider to set the skip condition.
The value displayed to the right of the slider displays the garbage ratio(*1). If a scanned
document is below this value, it is recognized as a blank page. The setting range is OFF(- -)
and 0.2% to 3.0% (in increments of 0.2%).
<If blank page skip does not operate properly>
−
If a blank page is scanned, increase the value set.
−
If scanning is skipped up to the required document, decrease the value set.
26
This option is valid only when the cache setting is set to [Use Memory on Scanner]. In
addition, this option cannot be used unless it is supported by the scanner.
*1: Ratio of black dots included in the scanning area (for blank pages)
Figure Option dialog (Generic)
♦ Unit/Scaling
This option selects the unit for the scanning area and preview window. One inch is
calculated as 25.4 millimeters. When inches are converted to millimeters, values are
rounded off.
27
Note
The TWAIN specifications require that the data width be arranged in units of 32 bits. As a
result, a difference of up to 31 dots can be included, depending on the value set.
Figure Option dialog (Endorser)
♦ Enable Endorser
Specifies enabling or disabling the endorsement function of the device.
When the option is selected and scanning has been completed, the scanned originals are
printed or a stamp is imprinted according to the instructions below. This applies only to
stamp or endorser options. Therefore, the function is supported only in devices in which the
stamp or endorser option can be installed. See "Relevant Image Scanner Specification"
described in the Appendix.
♦ Y Offset (Printing)
Specifies Y Offset from the edge of the original for the placement of printing. See "Relevant
Image Scanner Specification" in the Appendix because the standard value specified here
depends on the device.
28
♦ Direction (Printing)
Specifies the direction of endorsement strings. When the direction is perpendicular to the
direction of scanning, designate "Up to bottom". Only this version of the device permits the
direction to be specified.
♦ Surface (Printing)
Designates the side for printing or stamp imprinting. If the side is opposite the scanned
surface, select "Back." Select "Front" for the scanned surface. If both sides are scanned, the
side scanned first is considered to be the "Front."
See "Relevant Image Scanner Specification" in the Appendix, because the available options
depend on the device.
♦ Initial Count (Counter)
Designates the initial count when the endorsement string is set, including a counter value.
Programmable values range from 0 to +65535.
♦ Counter Step (Counter)
Designates the counter increment of the set counter values. In other words, this value is
added to or subtracted from the counter each time one original is scanned.
An increment of 0, 1, or 2 may be specified. Usually, 1 is designated for a single-sided
original, and 2 for a double- sided original.
♦ Counter (Counter)
Designates whether to increase or decrease the specified step value.
29
♦ Endorsement String
Specifies the endorsement string. The following definitions can be used. They may also be
selected from the menu, which is displayed by clicking on ">".
%YYYY: The year is printed in four digits using the Western calendar.
%YYY: The year is printed using the two digits of the Japanese calendar (current, or Heisei
era).
%YY:
The year is printed in the last two digits of the Western calendar.
%MMM: An English abbreviation of the month is printed; for example, JAN for January
and FEB for February.
%MM:
The month is printed in two digits; for example, 01 for January and 12 for
December.
%M:
The month is printed using one or two digits; for example, 1 for January and 12
for December.
%DD:
The day is printed using two digits; for example, 03 for the 3rd day of the month
and 26 for the 26th day of the month.
%D:
The day is printed using one or two digits; for example, 3 for the 3rd day of the
month and 26 for the 26th day of the month.
%HH:
The hour is printed using two digits of the 24-hour clock; for example, 08 for 8:00
a.m. and 14 for 2:00 p.m.
%H:
The hour is printed using one or two digits of the 24-hour clock; for example, 8 for
8:00 a.m. and 14 for 2:00 p.m.
%NN:
The minute is printed using two digits; for example, 02 for 8:02 a.m. and 48 for
2:48 p.m.
%N:
The minute is printed using one or two digits; for example, 2 for 8:02 a.m. and 48
for 2:48 p.m.
%05ud: A counter value is printed which increases or decreases with each page.
The initial counter and the methods of increasing and decreasing values can be specified as
explained above under the heading "Counter."
This specification is only permitted at the end of an endorsement string.
♦ Sample
Displays printed examples of the endorsement string designated above.
Note
The printed counter, date, and time do not always look like the sample because the
scanning option takes precedence.

4.8 Setting Advance Options
The "advance dialog" is used to set items related to image processing. The settings apply to
device-specific functions and items that differ according to whether the scanner used supports
them.
The advance option specification is divided into "Color Variance", "Image Processing", and
"Auto Binary".
The supported options depend on the scanner. See "Relevant Image Scanner Specification" in
the Appendix. (
is displayed for options that cannot be used.)
The option dialog for this driver is explained below.
The commonly used buttons are explained first.
♦ [OK]
Makes the new setting valid and closes the option dialog box.
♦ [Cancel]
Makes the new setting invalid, returns the setting to the previous value, and terminates
processing.
♦ [Help]
Displays online help.
31
The options are described below:
Figure Advance dialog (density correction)
♦ Gamma Pattern
This option corrects distortions from nonlinear image representation. Scanner sensors are
generally designed to generate output linear to the density of the light reflected from the
document. However, most output terminals do not produce output that has the desired linear
relation to the input, and the resulting distortion must be corrected.
One of the following can be selected as a correction pattern: "Normal", "Soft", "Sharp",
"Download Pattern", or "Custom".
32
When "Download Pattern" is selected, the above dialog box opens.
Select the gamma pattern download file to be used from the list of file names. Then, press
the [OK] button. Correction will then be executed using the selected gamma pattern.
If the gamma pattern download file has not been registered in the list of file names, use the
[Add] button to register the file.
See "Download Pattern File" for information about how to specify the file.
When "Custom" is selected, a custom specification can be entered.
Entering an arbitrary value between 0.1 and 10.0 enables a gamma pattern corresponding to
the entered value to be specified.
♦ White Level Follower
Select this option to scan a document whose background color is not white, such as a
newspaper.
Select "Auto", "Enable", or "Disable".
When "Enable" is selected, the document is scanned using background follow-up (for line
drawings). When "Disable" is selected, the document is scanned using the standard basic
white background (for photographs). When "Auto" is selected, the option automatically
switches to the optimal setting based on the specified "Image Mode".
"White Level Follower" is used to adjust the density of the white background of a document
and correct variations in the background color by compensating the pixels of scanned images
individually.
For ordinary use, set "White Level Follower" to off. Use of "White Level Follower" often
increases the background noise because IPC-3/3D is very sensitive.
This option is not available if "Gray Scale" is selected for "Image Mode".
In addition, some scanner models do not support this option. See "Relevant Image Scanner
Specification" in the Appendix.
33
♦ Dropout Color
This option enables scanning excluding the selected color information of green, red, or blue
(the three primary colors of light). For example, to scan black characters framed in red,
selecting red for scanning will scan only the black characters.
♦ Reverse
This option specifies whether to reverse the black and white of a scanned image.
If this option is selected, black and white are reversed by reversing the black and white
pixels. If this option is not selected, the black and white values of the reproduced image
corresponds to the original image.
Some applications do not permit normal operation. If this occurs, contact the manufacturer
of the application.
Figure Advance dialog (image processing)
34
♦ Edge Processing
This option specifies the sharpness of a scanned image.
Select "None", "Edge Extract", or "Smoothing (Background Removal)".
None
Edge processing is not performed.
Edge Extract
This option outputs an image with the edge extracted.
If this option is selected, the boundary between the black part and white part in a closed
area is traced and the edge extracted.
"DTC Variance" and "Edge Extract" are mutually exclusive.
Smoothing
This option smoothes the curves in an image by removing zigzag lines.
Emphasis
This option outputs an image with the edge emphasized.
"Emphasis High", "Emphasis Mid", or "Emphasis Low" can be selected.
If "Emphasis High" is selected, the image becomes sharper. If "Emphasis Low" is
selected, the image appears less distinct.
♦ Mirror
This option specifies whether to flip the scanned image over the scanning axis.
If this option is selected, a mirror image of the original image is obtained.
♦ Variance (Simple auto binary)
This option specifies the value for adjusting the dynamic threshold of an image based on the
brightness of the image.
A value is specified using the slider. The smaller the value, the lower the variance becomes.
The higher the value, the higher the variance becomes. To specify the value, drag the tab of
the slider to the desired setting position. The current setting is displayed on the right. This
option is mainly used for optical character recognition (OCR). It enables dark and bright
images in a document to be scanned effectively.
35
This option is valid only when "Simple auto binary" is set.
Figure Advance dialog (DTC Mode)
♦ Scan mode
This option selects one of the following two scan modes:
[for OCR]: This mode is for text recognition applications where irregularity in the image is
undesirable.
[for Image]: This mode is for image scanning applications that scan images without prior
smoothing.
The specification changes the specifiable items and members for "Threshold Curve" and
"Gamma Curve".
The selection screens for "for OCR" and "for Image" are not displayed if IPC-3/3D and IPC4D are installed.
36
♦ Density curve
This option specifies the relationship between the threshold value and the maximum density.
This specification method depends on the [Scan mode] setting.
In [for OCR] mode, use the slider to set the inclination and density level. To specify the
value, drag the tab of the slider to the desired setting position. The current setting value is
displayed on the right. (figure on the left)
In [for Image] mode, select [Normal] or [Lightest]. (figure on the right)
If IPC-3/3D and IPC-4D have been installed, there is no difference between [for OCR] and
[for Image]. The slider is used to set the inclination and density level. (The figure on the
right is not displayed.)
♦ Gamma Curve
This option specifies the gamma correction curve pattern.
The available choices depend on the [Scan mode] setting.
In [for OCR] mode, select [OCR1] or [OCR2].
In [for Image] mode, select [Dark Image] or [Even].
For IPC-3/3D and IPC-4D, the gamma curve need not be specified because the contrast is
adjusted automatically. ([Gamma Curve] is not displayed.)
♦ Equal to White
At conversion to binary, this option specifies whether to set the data to black or white when
the threshold value and the value of the scanned data are equal.
When using IPC-4D, this option cannot be selected.
♦ Ball-Point Pen Mode
When an image made with a pencil or ball-point pen is scanned, the light reflected from the
pencil lead or ink is not uniform. As a result, part of the image may be missing. If the [BallPoint Pen] checkbox is checked, filtering is applied to offset the bright area in the document
and compensate for disconnected or faint lines.
37
♦ OCR Smoothing
This option specifies whether to enable the function that modifies the zigzag lines in the line
drawing to smooth curves.
If this option is selected, the smoothing function is enabled.
For IPC-3/3D, either [Noise Removal] or [Smoothing] can be selected.
♦ Noise Removal
This option automatically removes spots that appear as black stains in a white area and spots
that appear as white stains in a black area.
This option uses an algorithm that removes particles from 2 x 2 to 5 x 5 dot matrixes. The
size of one dot depends on the resolution setting, and is equivalent to 1/400 inch for 400 dpi.
Particles are distinguished from the text by whether they are connected to other dots within
the specified number of pixels.
[Noise Removal] and [Smoothing] are valid only for IPC-3/3D.
Figure Advance dialog (DTC Mode) <IPC-3/3D and IPC-4D installed>
38
Figure Advance dialog (Color) <Image Mode : Color selected>
♦ Shadow/Highlight
Shadow : The highlight allows the darkest part of the document to be controlled. The higher
the shadow value, the darker the image.
Highlight : The highlight allows the brightest part of the document to be controlled. The
higher the highlight value, the lighter the image.
Any levels on the document outside these settings are flooded (all 0 or 255), while the
interval between the shadow and highlight settings is equally divided into 255 levels, which
are used to create the output images. This means that if the shadow and highlight settings are
close to each other, the contrast for that interval in the scanned document will be very strong
(but with all other areas maximizing high or low).
♦ Contrast/Brightness
Contrast : Sets the contrast of light and shadow in a scanned image. Specify the contrast
with a number in the range of 1 (low [soft]) to 255 (high [sharp]). If this value is
39
increased, the dark part of the image is shown darker and the light part is shown
lighter.
Some scanner models do not support this function. See "Relevant Image Scanner
Specification" in Appendix.
Brightness : Sets the brightness of the overall image. Specify the brightness with a number
in the range of 1 (bright) to 255 (dark). To brighten the overall image, decrease
the value of the setting. To darken the overall image, increase the value.
♦ Gamma
This option corrects distortions from nonlinear image representation. Scanner sensors are
generally designed to generate output linear to the density of the light reflected from the
document. However, most output terminals do not produce output that has the desired linear
relation to the input, and the resulting distortion must be corrected.
An arbitrary range is between 0.1 and 10.0.
♦ Color select
It is possible to select independent value on each color
40
Figure Advance dialog (Quality) <Image Mode : Color selected>
♦ Image Emphasis
This option specifies the sharpness of a scanned image.
Select "None", "De-Screen" or "Emphasis".
None
Edge processing is not performed.
Emphasis
This option outputs an image with the edge emphasized.
"Emphasis High", "Emphasis Mid", or "Emphasis Low" can be selected.
If "Emphasis High" is selected, the image becomes sharper. If "Emphasis Low" is
selected, the image appears less distinct.
41
De-Screen
"De-Screen Level 1", "De-Screen Level 2", "De-Screen Level 3", or "De-Screen Level
4" can be selected.
This option eliminate moirés patterns. To eliminate more effectively, higher level is
selected.
♦ White Level Follower
Select this option to scan a document whose background color is not white, such as a
newspaper.
Select "Auto", "Enable", or "Disable".
When "Enable" is selected, the document is scanned using background follow-up (for line
drawings). When "Disable" is selected, the document is scanned using the standard basic
white background (for photographs). When "Auto" is selected, the option automatically
switches to the optimal setting based on the specified "Image Mode".
"White Level Follower" is used to adjust the density of the white background of a document
and correct variations in the background color by compensating the pixels of scanned images
individually.
♦ Reverse
This option specifies whether to reverse the black and white of a scanned image.
If this option is selected, color data is reversed. If this option is not selected, the color values
of the reproduced image corresponds to the original image.
Some applications do not permit normal operation. If this occurs, contact the manufacturer
of the application.

The graph area is a 256-dot × 256-dot white square area bordered by black lines, where the
relationship between the input values of 0 to 255 (x axis) and output values of 0 to 255 (y
axis) is indicated in blue lines. Each graph dot represents one division (unit).
♦ Gradation
The input is displayed in black and white in 256 single-dot steps from 0 at the left border to
255 at the right border. The gama function of the scanner is displayed. After saving it, the
displayed (gray scale) gama function is fixed and constant. The output values are displayed
in single dots in relation to the input values and the brightness of the output equipment is
displayed. To ensure accurate display, the display must be set for "True-Color" or greater.
♦ Gamma
Calculation of the output values is based on the value γ entered in the edit box; the graph and
the gradation are then displayed. The values that can be input are integers greater than 0 or
fractions.
<<Formula>> Output = (input ÷ 255)γ × 255 (Input = 0 - 255)
♦ Free Edit
Designates whether to enable editing of the graph area directly using the mouse cursor.
If this box is checked, the gamma pattern input edit box cannot be used and only editing
using the mouse cursor is supported.
♦ Smooth
Designates whether to smooth edited curves. This setting is only valid when Free Edit is
selected. In this setting, the curved lines drawn by the mouse are automatically smoothed.
This is reflected in the graph and gradation display.
♦ Reverse
Designates whether to reverse black and white. When this box is checked, the current output
values are converted to (255 - output values).

65
•
•
•
•
•
The current parameter(s) is (are) not allowed. Please use (an)other parameter(s) and try
scanning again.
Cause:
An incorrect value has been specified for the image scanner. The
problem may be due to an illegal combination with the specification
value from the application.
User response:
Change the specification values. Then, try scanning again.
The scanner is in an irregular status; fuse is broken, etc. Please check the scanner status.
Cause:
A scanner fault such as a blown fuse or foreign matter in the scanning

there is foreign matter in the scanning section, remove the foreign
matter. If the error persists, contact the retail store where the image
scanner was purchased or the nearest maintenance and service center.
Memory is insufficient.
Cause:
Insufficient memory for scanning. The memory available may be
insufficient because an application consuming much GDI memory is
operating, too many other programs operate at the same time, or there
are too many registered device drivers. The user may mistakenly
think that adding more memory will solve this problem. However, in
most cases, memory shortage is due to insufficient conventional
memory (called the main memory within 640 kilobytes). Checking
CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT may be a better solution.
User response:
Cancel the registration of device drivers that are irrelevant and make
sure that only the absolutely necessary programs are operating. Use
the memory optimization tool to allocate as much conventional
memory as possible.
An error occurred in the temporary file.
Cause:
Accessing the internal temporary file of the scanned image is causing
the error. The disk space may be insufficient, the temporary file may
be damaged, or other programs may be affecting disk access.
User response:
Increase the free space of the disk. Check the hard disk (chkdsk and
scandsk). Make sure that no other program is accessing the disk. If
the error message persists, contact the retail store where the product
was purchased or the nearest service center.
