With ScanGear, scanning images via a scanner is the input, and displaying to a monitor is the output.
"Tone Curve" shows the balance of tone input and output for each Channel.
146
Adjusting Tone Curve
In Select Tone Curve, select a tone curve from No correction, Overexposure, Underexposure, High
contrast, Reverse the negative/positive image, and Edit custom curve.
No correction (No adjustment)
Overexposure (Convex curve)
The midtone data of the input side is stretched toward the highlight of the output side, resulting in a brighttoned image when viewed on a monitor.
Underexposure (Concave curve)
The midtone data of the input side is stretched toward the shadow of the output side, resulting in a darktoned image when viewed on a monitor.
High contrast (S curve)
The highlight and shadow of the input side are enhanced, resulting in a high-contrast image.
Reverse the negative/positive image (Downward-sloping line)
The input and output sides are reversed, resulting in a negative-positive inverted image.
147
Edit custom curve
You can drag specific points on the Tone Curve to freely adjust the brightness of the corresponding areas.

the borderline value that determines a color as black or white.
Move
(Slider) to the right to increase the threshold value and thus increase the black areas. Move the
slider to the left to decrease the value and thus increase the white areas. You can also enter a value (0 to
255).

Resolution
The data in the image you have scanned is a collection of dots carrying information about brightness and
color. The density of these dots is called "resolution", and resolution will determine the amount of detail your
image contains. The unit of resolution is dots per inch (dpi). Dpi is the number of dots per inch (2.5 cm).
The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less
detail.
How to Set the Resolution
You can set the resolution in Resolution on the
the
(Scanning from a Computer) tab or Resolution on
(Scanning Using the Scanner Buttons) tab of the Settings dialog.
Appropriate Resolution Settings
Set the resolution according to the use of the scanned image.

Important
• If you double the resolution, the data size of the scanned image quadruples. If the file is too large, the
processing speed will slow down significantly, and you will experience inconvenience such as lack of
memory. Set the minimum required resolution according to the use of the image.
204
Note
• When you will be printing the scanned image by enlarging it, scan by setting a higher resolution than
the recommended one above.
205
Data Formats
You can select a data format when saving scanned images. You should specify the most suitable data
format according to how you want to use the image on which application.
Available data formats vary by application and operating system (Windows or Mac OS).
See below for the characteristics of each image data format.
PNG (Standard File Extension: .png)
A data format often used on websites.
PNG is suitable for editing saved images.
JPEG (Standard File Extension: .jpg)
A data format often used on websites and for digital camera images.
JPEG features high compression rates. JPEG images slightly degrade every time they are saved, and
cannot be returned to their original state.
JPEG is not available for black and white images.
TIFF (Standard File Extension: .tif)
A data format featuring a relatively high compatibility between various computers and applications.
TIFF is suitable for editing saved images.
Note
• Some TIFF files are incompatible.
• IJ Scan Utility supports the following TIFF file formats.
•
•
•
•
Uncompressed, black and white binary
Uncompressed, RGB (8 bits per channel)
Uncompressed, RGB (16 bits per channel)
Uncompressed, Grayscale
PDF (Standard File Extension: .pdf)
A data format for electronic documents, developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated.
It can be used on various computers and operating systems, and fonts can be embedded as well; therefore,
people in different environments can exchange the files without being aware of the differences.
206
Placing Items (When Scanning from a Computer)
Learn how to place items on the platen of your scanner. Place items correctly according to the type of item
to be scanned. Otherwise, items may not be scanned correctly.
Important
• Do not place objects that weigh 4.4 lbs (2.0 kg) or more on the platen. Also, do not press on the item
with a force exceeding 4.4 lbs (2.0 kg). If you press heavily, the scanner may not work correctly or you
might break the glass.
• Close the document cover when scanning.
Placing Items
Place items as described below to scan by detecting the item type or size automatically.
Important
• When scanning by specifying the paper size in IJ Scan Utility or the scanner driver, align an upper
corner of the item with the corner at the arrow (alignment mark) of the platen.
• Photos that have been cut to various shapes and items smaller than 1.2 inches (3 cm) square cannot
be cropped accurately when scanning.
• Reflective disc labels may not be scanned as expected.
• When scanned using the scanner driver, the response may differ. In that case, adjust the cropping
frame (selection box) manually.
For Photos, Postcards, Business Cards, or BD/DVD/CD
Placing a Single Item:
Place the item face-down on the platen, with 0.4 inch (1
cm) or more space between the edges (diagonally striped
area) of the platen and the item. Portions placed on the
diagonally striped area cannot be scanned.
207
For Magazines, Newspapers, or Documents
Place the item face-down on the platen and align an
upper corner of the item with the corner at the arrow
(alignment mark) of the platen. Portions placed on the
diagonally striped area cannot be scanned.
Important
Important
• Large items (such as A4 size photos) that cannot be
placed away from the edges/arrow (alignment mark) of
the platen may be saved as PDF files. To save in a
format other than PDF, scan by specifying the data
format.
Placing Multiple Items:
Allow 0.4 inch (1 cm) or more space between the edges
(diagonally striped area) of the platen and items, and
between items. Portions placed on the diagonally striped
area cannot be scanned.
more than 0.4 inch (1 cm)
Note
• In IJ Scan Utility, you can place up to 12 items.
• Positions of slanted items (10 degrees or less) are
corrected automatically.
208
• Refer to "Items You Can Place & How to Place
Items" for details on the portions in which items
cannot be scanned.
