Chapter 2
Calibrating Your System
Sometimes the colors of your original image do not match the
colors you see on your screen and in the final printed output.
This is because of the different color processes your scanner,
monitor, and printer use to produce color.
The scanner and the monitor both create a range of colors by
adding red, green, and blue (RGB) in different proportions and
intensities (an additive color process). Printers, on the other
hand, produce colors by combining cyan (C), magenta (M),
yellow (Y), and black (K) inks (CMYK) to create the desired
hues. This is a subtractive color process.
When you print a scanned image, the image goes through both
the additive and subtractive interpretive processes to acquire
colorthe first when it is scanned, and the second when it is
printed on your color printer. As a result, the printed colors
may not match the colors in the original.
Calibration allows you to fine-tune your scanner, monitor, and
printer to produce colors that are very close to those in the
originals. Use the procedures in this chapter to:
Calibrate your monitor to your scanner
Calibrate your printer to your scanner
Use the resulting calibration profiles when you scan an
image.
Calibrating Your System
2-1
Calibrating Your Monitor to Your Scanner
To calibrate your monitor to your scanner, you first need to
perform a screen calibration using EPSON Scan! II and then
enable screen calibration in TWAIN.
Performing Screen Calibration
Follow these steps to perform a screen calibration:
1. Select EPSON Scan! II in the EPSON Scan! II folder.
2. Choose Screen Calibration from the Calibrate menu. You
see this screen:
3. Look at the display from a distance and adjust the slide bar
until the separate rows have the same basic color intensity.
Tip:
If the rows don’t look the same after you adjust the slide
bar, increase the number of colors your monitor displays,
if possible, using the Monitor Control Panel; see your
Macintosh documentation.
4. Choose OK.
2-2
Calibrating Your system
Note:
If you use a different monitor or change your video resolution,
calibrate your screen again.
Enabling Screen Calibration
Once you calibrate your screen, you need to make sure screen
calibration is enabled (the default setting). Follow these steps:
1. Start EPSON Scan! II, if necessary.
2. From the File menu, choose Acquire to start EPSON TWAIN.
You see the EPSON TWAIN screen.
If the screen is fairly small and has an Advanced button,
it is the easy screen. Click Advanced to switch to the
advanced screen. If the screen is large and has a
Configuration button, it is the advanced screen.
3. Click Configuration to open the Configuration dialog box.
4. Make sure the EPSON Calibration radio button is turned on.
If it isn’t, select it to enable screen calibration.
5. Choose OK.
6. Close the EPSON TWAIN screen.
When screen calibration is enabled, TWAIN uses it as it scans
images until you change this setting.
Calibrating Your printer to Your Scanner
If you are printing color images on a color printer, you must
choose a calibration profile for each of the printers you use.
Printer calibration profiles ensure that the colors in your
printed images closely match those in the original.
Calibrating Your System
2-3
®
If you have one of these EPSON Stylus ink jet printers, Scan! II
provides printer calibration profiles for you so you do not have
to create them:
EPSON Stylus COLOR
EPSON Stylus COLOR II
EPSON Stylus COLOR IIs
EPSON Stylus Pro
EPSON Stylus Pro XL
For these printers you simply select the printer calibration
profile before you scan an image. See “Scanning Using
Calibration” on page 2-8.
If you have a color printer that is not an EPSON Stylus, you
must create a printer calibration profile using the instructions
in this section.
To create a printer calibration profile, you must perform these
operations:
Export a calibration chart from EPSON Scan! II to your
application in a format your application can open and print
Scan the printed chart to create the printer calibration
profile.
Exporting a Calibration Chart
Follow these steps:
1. Start EPSON Scan! II, if necessary.
2. Choose Export Calibration Chart from the Calibrate menu.
2-4
Calibrating Your System
You see the following screen:
3. From the Export File Format pull-down menu, select a
format your application software can open, such as PICT.

gradations, and a black border on three sides.
Save the calibration chart file. You can use the same name
you assigned when you exported the chart, or you can
assign a new name.
Calibrating Your System
2-5
10. Print the calibration chart on your color printer.
11. Exit your image editing application.
Note:
To print images on more than one color printer, print the calibration
chart on each printer you’ll use. If you plan to print the image on a
service bureau’s color printer, have them print the calibration chart
on their printer so you can create a calibration profile for it.
Tip:
when you label the printed charts to help you identify which
printer produced them, don’t write on the chart itself. Write on
the back of the page.
Tip:
If you plan to print your image on a printing press that
requires a four-color separation, you’ll need to ask your service
bureau or printer to create a color sample using your
calibration chart. You can then use that color sample to create
a calibration profile.
You are now ready to scan the printed calibration chart to
create a printer calibration profile.
Creating Printer Calibration Profiles
Follow these steps to create a calibration profile for each color
printer you want to use:
1. Start EPSON Scan! II, if necessary.
2. Place the printed calibration chart face down on the glass
surface of your scanner and close the cover.
3. Choose Create Calibration Profile from the Calibrate menu.

Calibrating Your System
You see the following screen:
4. In the Filename field, type the filename of the calibration
file you want to create, such as COLOR1 PRINTER.
Tip:
If you are creating more than one calibration profile (for
instance, if you have more than one color printer), make
sure you assign a unique filename to each calibration
profile so you can distinguish between them.
5. Click Continue. You see the EPSON TWAIN advanced
screen. (If you see the easy screen, click Advanced.)

To delete an existing image type, select it from the Image Type
Name pull-down menu and choose Delete; then choose OK.
Using Text Enhancement Technology
EPSON’s Text Enhancement Technology filters out background
“noise” in text images, such as background colors, and
increases the threshold levels so that your OCR (optical
character recognition) software can recognize the text more
easily.
If your scanner supports Text Enhancement Technology, you
can activate it from the Image Type dialog box. First select
OCR from the Image Type pull-down menu. The Text
Enhancement Technology check box indicates the feature is
turned on. Choose Save and then choose OK.
Then select OCR from the Destination pull-down menu as well.

Note:
If your scanner does not support Text Enhancement Technology, the
option does not appear or is grayed out in the Image Type dialog box.
Modifying the Destination
The Destination dialog box allows you to define different
resolutions for each destination output device. You can also use
it to modify, add, or delete a calibration profile for your output
device.
To modify the Destination, click the Destination button. You
see the following dialog box:
Selecting resolution settings
Use the Resolution pull-down menus to select resolutions that
produce the best results for your image type and output device.
You can select one resolution for line drawings and halftones
and a separate resolution for photographs.
The best resolution setting for your image depends on the type
of image you are scanning and your final output device. The
following table shows the best scanning resolutions for most
needs.

The higher the resolution you select, the larger the resulting
image file. For example, an 8.5 x 11-inch photograph scanned
at 300 dpi can produce a 24MB file. The same photograph
scanned at 72 dpi creates a file of only 1.36MB. Large files take
longer to process and print. Consider the limitations of your
computer and hard disk drive when you select a resolution. To
keep file sizes manageable, select the lowest possible resolution
that gives acceptable quality.
Tip:
As a rule of thumb for any image except line art, use scanning
resolutions that are one third of your output resolution. For
example, use a scanning resolution of up to 110 with a 300 dpi
laser printer and up to 170 with a 600 dpi laser printer. For
EPSON Stylus printers, choosefrom 100 to 240 dpi for
720 dpi output and from 100 to 150 dpi for 360 dpi output.
Tip:
For printing on a commercial printing press, multiply the
lines per inch (lpi) the press prints by 2 to determine the
scanning resolution. For example, if the lpi is 150, scan at
300 dpi. (lf the resulting file is too large, try multiplying the
lpi by 1.5 to determine the scanning resolutibn.)
Tip:
If you plan to enlarge an image when you print it, scan it at a
higher resolution than you normally would.

Selecting calibration profiles
Use the Calibration pull-down menu to select a predefined
calibration profile or create a custom one. TWAIN can then use
the profile as it scans to create the best quality image.
EPSON TWAIN Scanning Utilities provide many predefined
printer calibration profiles, including those for the EPSON
Stylus color printers, as listed below:

again to unlock the value.
As you modify your selection area or other image settings, you
see the file size of the image in the Size field.
Note:
Some applications convert the image to fu11 24-bit data, so the actual
size of the image may be larger than the value displayed in Size.
The Scale field displays the amount by which an image is
enlarged or reduced during a scan. You can use this setting to
scan the image from half its normal size (50%) to twice its
normal size (200%). To change this value, move the slide bar or
type the value you want in the % field.
Note:
If you increase the Scale, the Size value also increases to indicate a
larger file size.

Troubleshooting
If you have problems using the EPSON Scanning Utilities, or
with the quality of your printed or scanned images, check the
two sections in this chapter for possible solutions.
Problems Using the EPSON Scanning Utilities
When you select a TWAIN data source, EPSON Scanners is not
listed.
Either the EPSON Scanning Utilities were not installed or they
were not installed correctly. Reinstall the EPSON Scanning
Utilities; see Chapter 1 for instructions.
Nothing happens when you select Acquire.
Make sure your scanner is turned on and the cables are
connected properly.
EPSON TWAIN may not be selected as the TWAIN data source
in your application. You’ll usually find the Select TWAIN
Source option under the File menu.
The EPSON TWAIN data source may not be installed correctly.
Reinstall the EPSON Scanning Utilities from your installation
diskettes; see Chapter 1 for instructions.
You may have selected the wrong SCSI ID for the scanner.
Check the settings for your scanner and any other SCSI devices
you may have. Then reinstall the EPSON Scanning Utilities.
Troubleshooting
6-1
An error condition may have caused your application or the
TWAIN data source in the EPSON Scanning Utilities to stop
working correctly. Save any documents in process and close
any open applications. Restart your Macintosh to restore the
TWAIN data source; then start your application and try again.
Sometimes an error condition may cause the computer to
display a message telling you that your scanner is not
recognized. If this happens, reset your scanner by turning it off
and on or pushing the RESET button. Then restart your
Macintosh and try again.
The system fails or an error message appears when you choose
Acquire from your application software.
You may have more than one TWAIN screen open at once.
Reset your Macintosh and use only one active TWAIN screen.
Your scanned image may be too big. Reset your system and
reduce the size of the scanned image.
If you see an insufficient memory error message, you may not
have enough memory allocated to the application to use it with
EPSON TWAIN. Use the Finder Get Info window to increase
the memory allocated to your application by 4MB to 5MB.
The EPSON Scanning Utilities do not start.
Make sure you are using a system with the minimum
requirements for the EFSON Scanning Utilities. See the
Introduction in this manual.
Check that the system requirements are correct for your
software application and that your software supports your
scanner model.
Be sure that you have correctly installed and set up your
application software.
6-2 Troubleshooting
See if your Macintosh has enough application memory to run
your software. If you are running other software at the same
time, you may not have enough memory left. See the section on
memory allocation in your Macintosh manual.
The scanner does not start scanning.
See that the scanner’s READY light is on.
Make sure the scanner's terminator and SCSI ID are set
correctly.
After clicking the Preview icon, the image does not appear in the
preview window.
Click on the TWAIN preview window.
The scan is not the full width you selected in the preview area.
The EPSON ES-300C and ES-600C scanners restrict the scan
width to 4096 pixels at high resolutions. Choose a lower
resolution for a wider scan.
After scanning and opening several scanned images, your
application software fails and your scanned image is lost.
Save and close the scanned images before scanning a new one.
The size of your image increases after scanning it into your image
editing application.
Your image editing software may be converting the image to
full 24-bit data, which requires more disk space. See your
application software manual for more information.
Troubleshooting 6-3
An error in the scanner or a paper jam in the Automatic Document
Feeder caused an error message.
Remove the jammed paper or reset the scanner to clear the
error condition; then try scanning again.
The Sharpness setting is grayed out in the Image Controls dialog
box
Your scanner does not support the Sharpness feature.
The Document Source setting is grayed out in the EPSON TWAIN
screen.
This is normal. You must first install an optional Automatic
Document Feeder or a Transparency Unit to be able to select
these as your Document Source.
®
®
You are using Adobe Photoshop 2.5.1 and the Color Drawing
and Color Halftone options are grayed out in the Image Type
pull-down menu.
This is because Photoshop 2.5.1 can scan only in 1, 8, or 24 bits
per pixel, so you cannot use these M-bit per pixel Image Types.
The Preview icon is grayed out when the Automatic Document
Feeder is selected under Document Source.
The preview feature is disabled when the Automatic Document
Feeder is selected because the document would have to be fed
through the feeder for the preview scan and then reinserted
into the feeder for the final scan. If necessary, use the document
table for previewing your document.
6-4 Troubleshooting
Auto Locate does not work when scanning two or more originals.
Make sure none of the documents are touching one another on
the document table.
When you scan a monochrome image, the scanned image is
reversed like a negative image.
If your application has an invert function, use it to reverse the
image, or use the Invert option on the TWAIN advanced screen.
Some applications misinterpret the scanner data. Check with
the application’s manufacturer for an updated program version.
The default settings for Image Type and Destination don’t meet
your specific scanning requirements.
You can define your own settings; see Chapter 3.
The Halftone setting in the Image Type dialog box is grayed out.
Halftone and dither settings on most EPSON scanners are only
available when the Pixel Depth setting is set to Black & White
or 8 Colors (1 or 2 bits per pixel per color).
The application software displays an error message, freezes, or
fails after scanning.
Make sure you close the TWAIN screen before switching to
your application software.
The image you scanned may be oversized. Try reducing its file
size by changing its resolution or dimension; then scan it again.
If you selected 16 Gray as the Pixel Depth setting, change to
256 Gray and try scanning again.
Troubleshooting 6-5
If you scanned an image at a high resolution (800 dpi) and at
the maximum allowable width using the Color Photo Image
Type setting, restart your Macintosh and reduce the resolution
and the width of the scanned image. Then try scanning again.
If your application contains a scan manager feature, you may
have closed it before closing the EPSON TWAIN screen. Scan
your image again, but close the TWAIN screen before closing
your application’s scan manager.
If you selected 3-pass scanning in EPSON TWAIN, you may
need to free some space on your hard disk to scan.
After scanning with an image editing application, the scanned
image disappears.
Make sure you close the TWAIN screen before switching to
your application software.
The rows in the screen calibration window do not match closely
enough.
Try adjusting your monitor’s brightness and contrast settings.
The TWAIN screen changed its color settings after a preview scan.
Increase the number of colors or decrease the resolution your
monitor displays using the Monitor Control Panel.
The colors in the Color Filter wheel do not reflect the gradated
“rainbow” spectrum of colors.
Increase the number of colors or decrease the resolution your
monitor displays using the Monitor Control Panel.
6-6
Troubleshooting
After starting a multipage scan using the Automatic Document
Feeder, the image editing application freezes, displays an error
message, or fails.
Reset the system and reduce the number of pages you are
scanning with the Automatic Document Feeder.
After closing the EPSON TWAIN screen, a partial image of the
screen appears over the scanned image.
Scroll the application’s frame to clear the partial image.
After selecting a part of an image to scan, the image did not scan
correctly.
Scan the whole image instead of a portion of it.
Problems With Image Quality
This section tells you how to fix problems with image quality
that may occur when you scan or print images.
The entire image is distorted or blurred.
Make sure that the document is placed flat against the
document table.
You may have moved the document during scanning. Check
the position of the document.
See that the scanner is not tilted or placed on an unstable
surface.
Troubleshooting 6-7
Part of the image is distorted or blurred.
Part of the original may be wrinkled, warped, or not in contact
with the document table. Be sure the document is uniformly
flat.
Caution:
Do not place heavy objects on the document table.
The edges of the document are not scanned.
The document table has non-readable areas around the edges.
Adjust your document’s position so that the image comes
inside the readable area.
Color is patchy or distorted at the edges of the document.
If the original is very thick or warped at the edges, the edges of
the image may be discolored. Cover the edges of the original
with opaque paper to avoid having outside fight interfere.
If part of the original is outside the document table, the edge
may not be in contact with the document table and may be
discolored. Change the position of the original.
The image is faint or out of focus.
Make sure the document is placed flat on the document table.
Check your Gamma Correction setting.
Make the Brightness setting darker.
Make sure you have calibrated your monitor and printer to
your scanner, and that you are using the resulting calibration
profile. See Chapter 2 for more information
6-8 Troubleshooting
The image is too dark and without details.
Adjust the Brightness, Gamma Correction, and Shadow
settings to lighter values and scan the image again. Also check
the brightness and contrast values of your monitor.
Check that the Destination output device is set correctly. If it is
set to Screen, output on a printer may be too dark.
Straight lines in the image are jagged.
The document may be placed at an angle on the document
table. Align it so that the horizontal and vertical lines are
carefully aligned with the rulers on the document table.
The image does not look the same as the original.
Make sure you have performed the calibration procedures and
selected the correct printer profile; see Chapter 2.
Try different combinations of scanner settings.
Check that your software is correctly installed.
If you are importing an image file into your application
software, see if the file format is acceptable for your software.
Also check that the settings of your application and your image
match. See your application software manual.
A line of dots is always missing on the scanned image.
If this happens only on your printed image, your printer or its
print head may have a problem or need cleaning; see your
printer manual.
If this happens on both your screen and printout, the scanner’s
sensor may be malfunctioning. Consult your dealer.
Troubleshooting 6-9
Using halftoning, textured dot patterns appear in the image.
This is normal halftoning; see your scanner manual for
examples.
The color on the video display seems different from that of the
original image.
Depending on your monitor, its resolution/color settings, and
your EPSON TWAIN settings, the screen colors may be
different from the original. This may be normal, especially if
colors in the printed image more closely match the original.
Make sure you have correctly performed the screen calibration
process in EPSON Scan! II. Recalibrate and try again.
Check your scanner settings-such as Pixel Depth, Gamma
Correction, and Color Adjustment-or try a different
combination of settings.
The printed color seems different from that of the originals.
Check that you have correctly performed the printer calibration
process in EPSON Scan! II using the correct printer calibration
profile. Recalibrate and try again.
The colors in a printed image may not match the colors of the
original image exactly because the scanning and printing
processes use two different color interpreting technologies.
The printed image is larger or smaller than the original size.
Check the image size settings in your application and TWAIN.
You may also have used the Zoom Preview icon. Do not use
the size of the image on your monitor to judge the printed size.
6-10 Troubleshooting
The image cannot be printed on the printer, the printout is
garbled, or the printout is not an image.
Check that the printer is properly connected to your Macintosh
and is set up correctly; see your printer manual.
Check that your software is properly installed and set up for
your printer; see your software manual.
Images cannot be scanned at all or only a few dots appear in the
scanned image.
Try different EPSON TWAIN settings. Be aware that some
settings disable others for a particular effect. Also, depending
on your scanner, some features may not be available.
Set the Brightness, Highlight, or Gamma Correction options
to darker settings and scan the image again.
If you selected Line Art as the Image Type setting and any
setting other than Screen as your Destination setting, try
increasing the Threshold setting to a higher value.
Moiré (interference) patterns appear in the scanned image.
Moiré patterns commonly occur when you scan images that
include halftone screens. To minimize this effect, try any of the
following solutions:
Move or angle the original slightly
Change the Sharpness setting
Change the Scale setting slightly
Select 3 pass for the Scanning Sequence.
Troubleshooting 6-11
When you select 16 Gray for the Pixel Depth setting, the scanned
image appears black in your application software.
Choose 256 Gray for the Pixel Depth setting and try scanning
again.
The image appears upside down and truncated in your application
software after scanning.
Before you scan the image, reduce its file size to less than 1MB
by adjusting settings on the TWAIN advanced screen.
When you select 256 Color for the Pixel Depth setting, the scanned
image does not match the previewed image.
Select Color Photo as the Image Type and try scanning again.
Select 16 Million Colors for the Pixel Depth setting and try
scanning again.
The image looks corrupted.
Check your printer driver settings. If the paper size is set larger
than Letter or A4, select a smaller paper size or the maximum
paper size your scanner can support. See your scanner
documentation for more information.
You may need to choose a lower resolution for the video
display setting using the Monitor Control Panel. See your
Macintosh documentation for more information.
If you change Monitor settings, perform another screen
calibration.
