Welcome to ScanGear CS-U 6.1
Welcome to Canon ScanGear CS-U 6.1 software for Windows Me,
Windows 98 and Windows 2000 Professional.
ScanGear CS-U 6.1 (hereafter referred to as ScanGear CS-U) will provide
flexible, efficient image enhancement tools for scanning with your
CanoScan D1230U/D2400U Scanner by providing an interface with a
variety of TWAIN-compliant software applications. (TWAIN ☞p.108)
ScanGear CS-U has a number of powerful features that help you achieve
peak performance with your scanner. Using ScanGear CS-U, you can
preview and adjust an image before the image is scanned and acquired
by the parent software application.
Here is a quick summary of the important features of ScanGear CS-U:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Two operation modes: Simple mode, which allows you to select all
optimum settings with one selection, and Advanced mode, which
allows you to create professional color and other enhancements for
artistic effects.
Flexible, fully automatic image acquisition, and pre-scan image
manipulation prior to passing data to the image application
TWAIN 1.6 compliant
Text Enhanced mode for OCR applications
Canon ColorGear (color matching software technology)
Automatic preview or preview image cache
ScanGear CS-U can run with or without its main window,
depending on the acquiring application.
Negative and positive films can be scanned using the film adapter
unit attached to the scanner.

Normally when you start a scanning job, you will see the ScanGear CS-U
main window with its toolbar, Preview Area, and tabs.
However, some software applications may not open the ScanGear CS-U
main window. When this occurs you cannot use the settings described in
this user’s guide because the host software application will provide the
settings so you can change the image after it is acquired. When a
software application uses ScanGear CS-U without opening the ScanGear
CS-U main window, this is called the windowless mode.

Gamma Sheet

Index
When the Gamma button is clicked, the Gamma sheet is displayed.
Gamma refers to a process where mid-tones are shifted so that the
lighter colors are lightened and darker colors are darkened. For example,
let us say you scanned a photograph of a subject in a boat in a tree-lined
lake and the shadows of the trees are dark enough and the white of the
boat is light enough, but the blue in the sky, the blue of the water, and
the blue of the subject's clothing all look the same. By increasing the
Scanner Gamma value of the image, the sky might become lighter and
the water darker, giving a better contrast to the image. The Monitor
Gamma value is a reciprocal number of the Scanner Gamma value.
Channel
If you want to select one of the primary colors (RGB) for adjusting the
gamma value, click the Channel down-arrow and select the color or

•
Up to 15 points can be added to a curve by
clicking anywhere in the curve box.
•
If you drag a point outside of a curve box, it will be
deleted from the curve and a new curve will form
with the remaining points.
•
The x and y axes on the curve chart represent the
input image color and output image color. When
you add a handle to the curve and drag that
handle toward the white areas, the preview image
tones are adjusted to reflect the change.
•
More than one handle cannot be positioned on a
vertical line but more than one handle can be

Compensates for high-contrast dirt and scratches. At this
setting, it may not be possible to restore areas under
large flecks of dirt or scratches.
This setting is recommended for most purposes.
Compensates for low-contrast dirt and scratches.
Although its may restore areas under large flecks of dirt
or scratches, it may leave artifacts after processing.
•
Note
•
•

•
This function cannot be used with black and white
film. It may also fail to have any effect on
KODACHROME film.
Areas under dirt and scratches may not be
removed if the selected scan area is too small.
There are occasions when areas under dirt or
scratches on the top or bottom edges cannot be
removed.
If the edge of the film guide is included in the scan
area, the areas under dirt or scratches at the
boundaries of the scan area may not be removed.
The Remove Dust and Scratches function will not
work at resolutions above 2400 dpi. Please reset
the output resolution at, or within, 25 and 2400
dpi. In addition, lower the magnification so that
the scanning resolution remains at 2400 dpi or
less. If, for example, the output resolution is set to
1200 dpi and the magnification to 400%, the
resulting scanning resolution is 4800 dpi, or four
times the output resolution. (1200 dpi x 400% =
4800 dpi)
This function is particularly effective at removing dirt or scratches from images
with large areas of relatively consistent coloring, such as sky shots, etc.

How to Avoid Problems
Index
Here is some general advice on avoiding problems in your scanning jobs:
•
Start with the best possible original image to scan.
•
Select only the part of the image you want to scan. Preview the
image and select it with the Crop and Auto Crop buttons. Not only
does a more precise selection save file space, but your image
quality will be much higher.
•
Check the output file size before beginning the scan. Make sure
you have enough room if you are scanning files that require a large
amount of disk space.
•
Match your Color Mode to the output purpose. If you are scanning
text, use the Text Enhanced mode. If you are scanning line art, use
the Black and White setting, and so on.
•
Match your scan resolution to the type of file you need. If you are
scanning images for use as .GIF or .JPG files on the Web, you do
not have to scan at 600 dpi. Although it is recommended that you
scan at a higher resolution than you need for high-quality color
images, you should balance that factor against your planned use
for the image.
•
Take advantage of the Tone sheet features to enhance your images.
(☞p.43)
•
Try to use TrueColor mode on your monitor so you can view your
preview image as accurately as possible.

If you are using OCR software, scan in Text Enhanced at 300 dpi or

Color Channels
The red, green, or blue components of a color image. Color images
contain 8 bits per pixel each for red, green, and blue channels, therefore
each pixel has 24 bits. If you are scanning a color image, you can change
the brightness and contrast of the individual red, green, and blue tones
in your image. The Master channel is a combination of the three.
Color Matching
The range of colors your scanner can see may not match the range of
colors your video monitor can produce. Color matching lets your system
display colors so that the color on your monitor and printer matches the
colors scanned. See also Canon ColorGear Color Matching.
Color Mode
The type of scan used to scan an image, differentiated by the number of
bits per pixel. ScanGear CS-U has the following Color Modes: Color,
Grayscale, Text Enhanced, and Black and White.
Contrast
Contrast refers to the difference between the lightest light and the
darkest dark in the image. A low contrast value indicates that the
difference between dark shades and light shades is not very great. A
high value indicates a great difference between dark and light shades.
While brightness refers to the intensity of tones in an image, contrast
refers to the range and number of tones in an image.

per pixel) using Canon ImageTrust processing software.

tone. The Tone sheet tools include Auto Tone, Contrast/Brightness,
