Setting the Resolution and Magnification
The magnification of an image can be changed before scanning to accommodate
reproductions that are larger or smaller than the original. The settings can be changed
in increments of 1%.

Scanning with horizontal/
vertical 2x magnification
Scanning at 200%

0.689"/1.75cm
0.492"/1.25cm
Scanning at 50%
Changing the magnification setting causes the resolution display on the control panel
to change correspondingly. This resolution setting is referred to as the “scanning
resolution.”

Scanning Resolution
The scanning resolution changes

Hint
Magnification and Resolution
Why does the image size change with the magnification? Let us answer this
with an example using an “BJ (720 dpi)” output device. If you were to scan an
image with this device setting and set the magnification factor to 50%, the
scanning resolution will automatically change to 360 dpi. At this setting, the
image will be scanned at a resolution of 360 dpi and the output device will
convert this to 720 dpi, shrinking the size of the output in the process because it
will only have half the data with which to fill the space.

Click inside these boxes
to enter values directly.
Hint
The Relationship Between Data Volume and Scanning Resolution
The higher the magnification and scanning resolution settings, the greater the
file size of scanned images. There are certain inconveniences associated with
overly large data volume, such as the inability to fit a file on a single floppy disk
and the risk of causing a temporary computer slowdown by overwhelming its
processing capabilities. For example, if you scan a standard size photograph in
the color mode, the amount of data varies according the resolution.

Setting the Scan Mode
When an image is scanned, it is read as a collection of “dots.” The scan mode that is
selected determines how each of these dots is represented in the output. The following
five scan modes are available.
Black and White
Expresses the image with dots of only two shades: black or white. Select Threshold
to lighten or darken the entire image by setting the value by which dots are judged
to be either black or white. Select this option for scanning photographs and text for
printing in monochrome.
8-bit Grayscale
Expresses a dot in up to 256 shades of gray. Select this option for scanning black
and white graphics and photographs.
12-bit Grayscale
Expresses a dot in up to 4,096 shades of gray. Select this option for exceptionally
high quality grayscale images. However, the file will be approximately twice the size
of an 8-bit Grayscale file.
24-bit Color
Expresses a dot with 8 bits for each primary color – red, green, and blue (RGB) – for
a total of 24 bits. A dot can be expressed in up to 16.8 million distinct shades. Use
this option for most color photographs.
36-bit Color
Expresses a dot with 12-bits for each primary color – red, green, and blue (RGB) –
for a total of 36 bits. A dot can be expressed in up to 68.7 billion distinct shades.
However, the file will be approximately twice the size of a 24-bit Color file.
Hint
Scanning the same image in the three different scan modes produces different
file sizes. By size, black and white mode requires the least disk space, followed
in order by the grayscale and the color modes. Before scanning, check the data
volume indicator on the control panel.
The numerator indicates the amount of disk
space required for the scanned image while
the denominator indicates the amount of
disk space available. When the required
space exceeds the available space, the scan
button is unavailable.

Procedure
Click the arrow beside Scan Mode.
Selecting the box opens
the pop-up menu.
Select a scan mode from the pop-up menu.
Caution
• If you select 12-bit Grayscale or 36-bit Color for a software application that
does not support these options, the system may hang up when you attempt to
execute the scanning job with either selection. Before you use these settings,
check the specifications to determine whether or not 12-bit Grayscale and
36-bit Color scanning is supported. Adobe Photoshop (Ver. 4.0 or higher) and
Photoshop LE supplied with this package support these modes.
• If you scan an image with a version of Photoshop compatible with 36-bit
Color, the image is scanned as a 16-bit Channel Mode image.

Verifying the Image before Scanning
Before initiating the final scan, it is advisable to check the intended results with the
Browser function. The image in the browser window is more accurate than the one in
the preview window, allowing you to verify the results more precisely before scanning.
To Verify the Image
Set the magnification and scan mode to the appropriate settings (pp. 22-32).
Click on the [Browser] button.
• The selection frame will appear in the preview window to enable a portion of the
image to be selected.
• The size and shape of the selection frame cannot be changed because it is
automatically determined by the scanning resolution.
➟
Hint
The Browser button is disabled when the image area is unspecified or is too
small (less than approximately 64 x 64 pixels).
Move the pointer in the selection frame inside the preview window.
• The mouse cursor will change to a “+” sign shape.
Move the Selection Frame to the desired position with the mouse cursor.
• Moving the mouse will move the Selection Frame.
Click the mouse button when the selection frame is in the correct position.
• The image will be scanned and the browser image displayed in the middle of the
monitor.
Once you have examined the browser image, click the mouse button again
to close the browser window.
• The browser window will close.
• It does not matter where the mouse cursor is positioned to close the browser window.

Using the Histogram Feature to Adjust Image Contrast
The data comprising an image contains a variety of brightness settings ranging from
shadows to highlights. These settings are represented in Plug-in Module CS-S by values
ranging between 0 and 255. The difference in these values determines the image’s
contrast. To show how much of the image data falls into each brightness setting,
Plug-in Module CS-S contains a histogram feature that shows this data distribution
clearly. With the histogram you can adjust the level of shadows and highlights to
achieve beautiful tones with the best possible contrast.
Hint
• You can enhance images with the histogram options only when the image has
been previewed in the color or grayscale scan modes.
• You cannot enhance the image with the histogram when ColorSyncTM is selected.
How to Interpret Histograms
You can select the entire image or specify an area for which a histogram will be
generated. The height of the peaks of the histogram is directly related to the volume
of data with the corresponding value.

How to Adjust Histograms
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. Use the [Auto] setting to adjust the histogram for most jobs (p. 42). The

Brightness and Contrast Settings
You can adjust the image with two slide bars, one for contrast and one for brightness.
Use this method to adjust an image before scanning if it is slightly out of focus or too
dark.
Hint
You cannot use this feature with the black and white scan mode or the 24-bit
color scan mode when ColorSyncTM is selected.
Contrast
Contrast is the difference between the lightest light and the darkest dark in the
image. A high contrast setting creates a great difference between light and dark
shades, and there is a very sharp distinction between light and dark areas of the
image. A low contrast setting creates a small difference between light and dark
shades, and the distinction between light and dark areas of the image are not as
obvious.
Contrast = 128 (Normal)
Contrast = 170
Contrast = 100
If the image appears slightly out of focus, increase the contrast setting to sharpen
the image. If the contrast setting is too high, shadows will blacken and the
highlights will wash out.
Brightness
Brightness is the overall lightness or darkness of an image without changing the
contrast. Adjust the brightness setting to change the overall lightness or darkness of
the entire image. If the brightness setting is too high, the highlights will wash out,
and if too low, the shadows will blacken.

Gamma Value Settings
By adjusting the gamma value, you can more closely match brightness of the displayed
image to the printed image. Adjust this value if what you see on the screen is very
different from your printout.
Hint
• You cannot use this feature with the black and white scan mode or with the
24-bit color scan mode when ColorSyncTM is selected.
Matching the Gamma Value to the Display Characteristics
Not all screen displays reproduce color tones in exactly the same way, and this
reproduction method is expressed as a gamma value from 1.4 to 2.2 and normally
reproduces a slightly dark image.
In order to avoid this and reproduce an image that is faithful to the original, the
gamma value must be adjusted in Plug-in Module CS-S. Plug-in Module CS-S can
adjust the pre-set screen gamma value of 1.8, but if the screen has a gamma value
other than 1.8 then the gamma value for that screen must be set.
Gamma value
Plug-in Module CS-S and the screen display have different gamma values. During a
scanning job Plug-in Module CS-S receives the image read from the scanner as
input and sends it to the parent application as output. The gamma value in this
interval where Plug-in Module CS-S converts input to output is the Plug-in Module
CS-S gamma value.
On the other hand, the data received from Plug-in Module CS-S as input is sent to
the screen display as output. The gamma value in this interval where the image
input from Plug-in Module CS-S is converted to output for the screen display is the
screen display gamma value.
Setting the screen display gamma value causes the scanner gamma value to be
calibrated automatically as the inverse value. For example, if the screen display
gamma value is set for 1.8, then the scanner gamma value is calibrated for 0.56
(the inverse of 1.8).
Hint
• 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.
• If you intend to adjust the color tone with ColorSync™, change the settings in
the ColorSync™ System control panel (found within the Control Panels folder)
and do not manually change the gamma value settings as described in the
following pages.

Brightness Settings for Black & White Images (Threshold Value)
When the scan mode is set to black and white, the image brightness can be adjusted.
The threshold value setting determines whether a halftone will be expressed as a black or
a white data point. The possible threshold values range between 0 and 255. Below a
given threshold value, all data is converted to black. Likewise, all data with a value above
the threshold is converted to white. Accordingly, higher threshold values produce darker
images while lower threshold values result in brighter images.
Threshold Value = 128 (Standard)
Threshold Value = 180
Threshold Value = 70
To Set the Threshold Value
When the scan mode is set to black and white, click the [Tone adjustment]
button or pull down the Image menu and select [Tone adjustment].
Drag the slidebar left or right to adjust the
threshold setting.
Click the up or down arrow to increase or
decrease the entry in the text box, or enter the
value (0~255) directly from the keyboard.

Auto Tone Correction (ColorSync™)
If you scan an image in 24-bit color with ColorSyncTM selected, you can adjust the color
automatically. The ColorSync™ function automatically matches the tones produced and
displayed by scanners, displays and color printers. Optimal color correction is achieved
with ease without having to make adjustments with the histogram or other color
correction functions.
Caution
• This feature is available only when the scan mode is set to 24-bit color, not for
36-bit color, grayscale, or black and white.
• More time is required to start the program and scan when the ColorSync™
function is activated.
Hint
• ColorSync™ responds differently to each computer according to the unique
conditions affecting it (type of display used, etc.), which may cause differences
even between computers of the same make and system version. The tone
characteristics of an image scanned with ColorSync™ on one computer,
therefore, may change when processed on another computer.
• Color correction using the histogram function and gamma value settings
cannot be conducted when the ColorSync™ function is activated.
To Activate the ColorSync™ Function
Open the [Image] menu and select [ColorSync].
Color is adjusted automatically to the optimum settings. The automatic setting may
require a few seconds to activate. When ColorSyncTM is on, you will see it checked
in the menu. To switch ColorSyncTM off, open the [Image] menu and select it again
to remove the check mark.

Scanning Techniques
Matching Scan Resolution to Purpose
ScanGear CS-S provides many choices for resolution. What resolution you choose
depends on your output device, how you want to use the image, the type of image,
and your scanner.
In general, it is recommended that you scan the image at a higher resolution than you
need. That way, you retain the amount of information in the image, and if necessary
you can reduce the resolution in the imaging application, after the image has been
scanned and acquired.
Different types of images need different types of scan settings. However, after a certain
point, increases in scan resolution will not improve the output image quality. For
example, a text image can be scanned at 600 dpi for output to a 600 dpi laser printer,
but a color image should be scanned at 180 dpi to be output to a color BJ-printer.
When the image is output to a Bubble jet printer in the color or grayscale mode, for
example, the basic resolution of the printer is halved. For example, for a 360 dpi printer
the basic resolution is set for 180 dpi.
• If your image is black and white with no shades of gray, such as line art, scan
in black and white mode.
• If you are scanning continuous-tone black and white photographs, charcoal
drawings, or any original with shades of gray, scan in Grayscale mode.
• For full-color images, such as photographs or illustrations, scan in Color mode.
• With OCR applications using black and white scan mode, more than 300 dpi is
the recommended scan resolution.
Optical and Enhanced Resolutions
Optical resolution refers to the amount of information a scanner can sample per inch.
Different varieties of scanner feature different optical resolutions. The maximum optical
resolution of the CanoScan FB1200S is 1200 dpi for both the primary scan (horizontal
dimension of the document) and secondary scan (vertical dimension).
The 1200 dpi resolution of the primary scan is achieved with a proprietary Canon
technology, the VAriable Refraction Optical System (VAROS). VAROS is a two-pass
scanning technique that combines the results of the scanning unit's first pass with a
second pass that is optically shifted by a half pixel. This technique is used for scans at
resolutions of 601 dpi or greater.

Desk.
Hint
• Before you call for assistance, read the Getting Started Guide or Product
Guide.
• When you contact one of the help desks, you will be asked what kind of
computer is connected with the scanner. Before you call, make sure you have
prepared the information required on the system information page in the
Getting Started Guide.
Problem:
Plug-in Module CS-S does not appear on the Import menus for
Photoshop®.
➤Solution:
Plug-in Module CS-S is not correctly installed on your hard disk drive.
Refer to Installing Plug-in Module CS-S (p. 13) and reinstall the
software.
Problem:
The image will not appear even if the Preview button is
clicked on the Plug-in Module CS-S control panel.
➤Solution 1: If more than one SCSI device is in use, check to ensure that each
device has been assigned a unique SCSI ID and none are duplicated.
If duplication has occurred, assign a unique SCSI ID to the scanner.
➤Solution 2: Make sure the original is set on the document glass correctly.
➤Solution 3: Ensure that the SCSI terminator setting is correct. For details about
the terminator setting, refer to the Product Guide electronic manual
provided on the CD-ROM.
➤Solution 4: The brightness settings for Plug-in Module CS-S may be set too high. Try
lowering the brightness settings. For details about setting the tone
curve, see Adjusting the Image with Tone Curve Settings (p. 44).

➤Solution 5: The threshold setting for Plug-in Module CS-S may be set to high.
Try lowering the threshold setting. For details about setting the
threshold setting, see Brightness Settings for Black & White Images
(Threshold Value) (p. 52).
Scan button cannot be selected
➤Solution 1: A scan cannot be performed if the scan area is set too small (less
than 64 x 64 pixels). Increase the size of the scan area.
➤Solution 2: A scan cannot be performed unless a scan area is specified. Specify a
scan area.
➤Solution 3: A scan cannot be performed if the required disk space is larger than
the free space. Change the resolution (p. 23) or scan area (p. 34)
until the required space is lower.
Problem:
The “Insufficient Memory” error message appears when
scanning.
➤Solution 1: Select the smallest required area and rescan.
➤Solution 2: Lower the resolution and magnification settings for the output
device to the lowest possible values (p. 22, 23) .
➤Solution 3: Close all other software applications other than Adobe Photoshop,
then try scanning again.
➤Solution 4: Close all software applications including Adobe Photoshop, then
restart Adobe Photoshop and scan again.
➤Solution 5: Shut down Adobe Photoshop and all other applications and increase
the amount of free memory, then start Adobe Photoshop again. For
details about increasing the amount of free memory, see the Adobe
Photoshop (or other software application) manual.
➤Solution 6: Increase the amount of RAM as required.

Glossary
Brightness
The amount of light in an image when it is scanned. Increasing the brightness
setting makes the entire image lighter, and decreasing the brightness setting makes
the entire image darker. (p. 47)
Contrast
The degree of difference between the dark and light portions of a document being
scanned. Raising the contrast of an image tends to sharpen it, lowering the contrast
tends to blur it. (p. 47)
Color (24-bit)
Expresses a dot with 8-bits for each primary color for a total of 24 bits (8 bits x 3
colors = 24 bits). A dot can be expressed in up to 16.8 million distinct shades
(2563=16.8 million)
Color (36-bit)
Expresses a dot with 12-bits for each primary color, red, green, and blue (RGB), for a
total of 36-bits (12 bits x 3 colors = 36 bits). A dot can be expressed in up to 68.7
billion distinct shades (4,0963=68.7 billion)
Dot
The fundamental element of a letter, object or image. The number of dots per inch
(dpi) determines the resolution (or density) of a letter, object or image.
Gamma Correction
The process whereby variations in color tones from the output of monitors, printers
and other output devices are made consistent with the source (input) document. In
Plug-in Module CS-S you can use the gamma value setting, or enter a gamma value
directly, to set a value to match the gamma value for your monitor. Gamma values
are expressed as numbers: 1 is the standard value, numbers lower than 1 brighten
the output and numbers higher than one darken the output. A graph function, the
tone curve (gamma curve), is also available in Plug-in Module CS-S to make
adjustments to gamma values.
Gamma Curve
See the entry for Gamma Correction.
Grayscale (8-bit)
Expresses a dot in 256 shades of gray between white and black.
Grayscale (12-bit)
Expresses a dot in 4,096 shades of gray between white and black.

comprised of bitmap data, a collection of color information corresponding to each
dot of an image. There are many formats for image files, including the TIFF, PICT
and BMP formats.
Preview
See the entry for Scanning.
Resolution
An expression of the density of dots in an image file that indicates the extent of its
granularity. Generally expressed as the number of dots per inch (dpi).
RGB
An acronym for the base colors red, green and blue used in varying combinations to
reproduce the full spectrum of colors on monitors and other output devices.
These colors are often referred as the base or primary colors.
Scanner
A device which scans a physical image from paper or other media and converts it to
digital data which can be read by a computer.
Scanning
The process of using a scanner to read an image electronically. Before the final scan,
a preview scan is generally conducted. The preview scan encompasses the entire
scope of the document glass area and only provides a general indication of the
image that may differ from the final scan. The final scan is executed after specifying
the area of the image to be scanned and various settings that determine how the
scan is conducted.
