Basic Tab
Job Type
This menu allows you to select the job type.
Image Type
This menu specifies the mode in which the image is to be scanned in.
The following pictures show examples of the various scan modes.
Gray 256 scales
3.4 Scanning
Halftone, B/W
Lineart, B/W
Gray 256 Scales
Images scanned in this mode will show up to 256 shades of gray. If high
quality copies of photographs or other continuous tone originals are
desired, Gray 256 Scales is the best choice.
Gray 256 Scales provides accurate representation of black and white, and
intermediate gray shades between black and white, for each individual
pixel. It actually provides 256 shades, representing white by the value 255
and black by the value zero, with progressively lighter intermediate shades
of gray by values from 1 through 254.
Halftone B/W
This scan mode uses various combinations of black and white pixels to
simulate gray scales. While not the same level of image quality as the Gray
256 Scales image type, this image type is good for continuous tone images
where smaller file size is more important than ideal image quality.
Lineart B/W
✔ In both Halftone and Lineart modes, the resolution can only be set to
150, 200, or 300 dpi.
Resolution
The resolution setting determines the amount of information the scanner
will capture in a resulting scanned image.
Scanning
3.5
3 Scanning
Lineart B/W mode is generally the best choice for printed text or pen-andink drawings. Like the Halftone B/W image type, this image type defines
the state of each pixel in the image with one bit that is either on or off. For
this reason, files created in this mode will require approximately the same
amount of disk space as a Halftone B/W file.
The resolution can be measured in dpi (dots per inch). The higher the
resolution is, the finer the image detail and the bigger the image file size is.
See the examples of images at 75 and 300 dpi.
300 dpi
75 dpi
You can select any one of the resolutions shown on the Resolution menu,
or specify your own resolution by selecting the Custom option which
invokes the Custom Resolution dialog box.
To use the Custom Resolution dialog box, type the desired resolution (in
dpi), and click OK. The custom resolution created will be displayed in the
Resolution menu.
✔ The Resolution settings can be restored by clicking Defaults at the
bottom of the Basic tab.
Image Area
You can select any size of scanning area on the image area menu. This
reflects the selection frame on Preview window.
Reduce/Enlarge
This feature allows an image to be automatically enlarged or reduced as it
is scanned. The default scale factor is 100%. The selected scaling factor, the
range of which is dependent on the selected image type, affects the printed
scan output.
3.6 Scanning
✔ When scanning a printed image for screen display only, scale the
image down to increase processing speed and decrease the file size.
Scaling 100%
Scaling 50%
Fixed scaling options are displayed in percentages of reduction or
enlargement. Image width and height are scaled proportionally when fixed
scaling factors are used. To scale to a size other than the fixed sizes, select
the Custom option in the Scaling menu. The Custom Scaling dialog box
will appear.
1. Insert the desired height or width value into the Height or Width edit
boxes.
2. The units of measurement may be changed to inches, centimeters,
millimeters, pixels, picas or percentages of the original image dimensions
by selecting the desired unit of measurement from the Units drop-down
list boxes to the right of the Height and Width text boxes.
3. To prevent distortion of the image when changing height and width
values, the height and width values are automatically linked - you need
only enter one value, either a Height or Width value. The other value will
be computed and the image will resize proportionately.
✔ You can also change Height and Width values by directly adjusting the
selection frame.
✔ Output image file size is proportional to both Height and Width. If
both Height and Width values are doubled, then the image area and
image file size will increase four-fold.
✔ Once you have confirmed or changed the size, resolution, and final
scan boundary settings, the scanning software determines the size of
the resulting scanned image and displays this information along with
available hard disk space.
Scanning 3.7
3 Scanning
To change Height or Width text box values:
Balance Tab
Color Channel
The Color Channel radio buttons are used to specify the color channel in
which to change the Highlight, Shadow and Midtone values.
The only channel available to be selected when using your machine to scan
is the Gray channel. Red, Green and Blue are used for scanners capable of
scanning documents in color.
Highlight
The Highlight value represents the lightest value in an image. All pixels
above this point will be rendered as pure white. If you subsequently
broaden the highlight points on the Level Adjustment graph, the pixels
will be remapped within the new range, thus allowing you to see more
detail in the image.
The Highlight scroll bar allows you to manually set a highlight level. The
default for the Highlight settings is 255. You can increase or decrease the
highlights in a particular image as needed by adjusting this scroll bar. The
value in the adjacent box will change in the range 1 to 255 as the slider
moves.
Shadow
The Shadow value represents the darkest value in an image. All pixels
below this point will be rendered as pure black. If you subsequently
broaden the shadow points on the Level Adjustment graph, the pixels will
be remapped within the new range thus allowing you to see more detail
in the image.
The default value for Shadow is 0. You can increase or decrease the
shadows in a particular image as needed by adjusting this scroll bar.
3.8 Scanning
Midtone
All optical devices such as monitors and scanners have some differences
in their light sensitivity characteristics. Samsung TWAIN provides
Midtone adjustment for you to compensate for these differences in your
scanner, and it produces better scanned images.
To change the Midtone value, move the slider to the left or right to change
the values in the adjacent text box. The value in the adjacent box will
change in the range 0.1 to 10.0 as the slider moves.
Ordinarily, good results can be obtained from your machine by leaving
the slider at its default value of 1.00.
Advanced Selection
The advanced selection will present features that allow you to modify the
Level Adjustment and the Tonal Map of the document.
To activate the Level Adjustment or Tonal Map functions, click on the
Advanced... button at the bottom of the Balance tab.
When this button is selected, the Level Adjustment window is displayed
by default.
Scanning 3.9
3 Scanning
For both the Level Adjustment and the Tonal Map functions, the window
displayed contains small representations, known as thumbnail views, of
the original and enhanced images (Samples 1 and 2).
Level Adjustment
The Level Adjustment dialog box shows the distribution of brightness
levels in your image. To adjust the histogram plot, drag the triangles,
located below the horizontal bar to the desired values. The left (black)
triangle changes the shadow levels. The right (white) triangle changes the
highlight levels. The middle (gray) triangle controls the midtone levels.
Level Adjustment tab
Highlight control
Shadow control
Midtone (Gamma)
control
By varying the Shadow and Highlight points you can change the relative
shades and highlights of the image. The Shadow point represents the
darkest value and the Highlight point is the brightest value.
The Midtone point represents the Gamma setting for your particular screen.
On the histogram, the Shadow and Highlight scales are divided into 255
units.
Therefore, all pixels in the original that are darker than the current shadow
point are now completely black in the enhanced image. Conversely, all
pixels in the original that are brighter than the current highlight point are
now completely white in the processed image.
Setting the highlight point to 200 renders all pixels greater than or equal to
200, on the original, completely white in the processed image. Similarly
setting the Shadow point to 200 renders all points less than or equal to 200,
on the original, completely black in the enhanced image. Photographers
often refer to these effects as Òhigh-keyÓ or Òlow-keyÓ. High-key is an image
pushed to the white end, and low-key is an image pushed to the black end
of the tone curve.
3.10 Scanning
The Midtone is a relative measure of the gamma of your monitor. The scale
for Midtone ranges from 0 to 255. The gamma curve is a geometric series.
This means that at a value of 255 it tends to infinity.
The Midtone is bound by the Shadow and Highlight terms and cannot
exceed them at any time. So, if the Highlight is set to 255 and the Shadow is
set to 0, a gamma of 1 is equal to a Midtone of 128. Similarly, if the Shadow
is set at 200 (lower boundary) and the Highlight is set at 220 (upper
boundary), a gamma of 1 is equal to a Midtone of 210.
Operation:
1. Select the Advanced... button on the Balance tab. This will display the
Level adjustment window.
2. On the histogram, use the mouse key to click on the black, gray ,or white
triangles to make changes to the Shadow, Midtone and Highlight
respectively.
3. To see the changes and compare them to the original previewed image,
click on Sample 1 to see the enhanced image.
4. To make a second enhancement for comparison, click on Sample 2. Make
new enhancements to the original. Compare the images of Sample 1 and
2.
6. Click OK to save the changes and close the Enhancement dialog box. If
you do not want to save the changes, click on the Cancel button to close
the Enhancement dialog box. Click Auto button to allow the software to
make appropriate highlight and shadow adjustments.

Tonal Map
If you select the Tonal Map tab, the following dialog box will be displayed.
Tonal Map tab
The Tonal Map is yet another way to adjust Highlight, Midtone, or Shadow
levels in your images. When you open the Tonal Map dialog box, a tonal
map consisting of a diagonally straight line appears. Notice that at every
point on the default tonal map, the output shadow, midtone, and highlight
brightness levels are equal to the input shadow, midtone, and highlight
brightness levels.
The shape and slant of the tonal map represent brightness level ratios
between the input of the original image and the output image data. By
clicking on the tonal map line, a hand-shaped cursor will appear which can
be dragged to change the shape of the tonal map line.
The horizontal axis represents the original input brightness and the vertical
axis represents the enhanced brightness. Values on either scale range from 0
to 255.
As shown in the figure below, if the curve is changed into a convex shape
above the original diagonal, the enhanced image will be brighter than the
original.

This selection emphasizes the edges of an image. It sharpens the image
boundaries by increasing the relative contrast between adjacent pixels. In
general, sharpen filters should only be used when you want to accentuate
the differences between one area and another.
Descreen
This selection is used to eliminate moire patterns from the output image.
Moire occurs as a result of differences in the screen pattern used to print
document and the scanner electronics. Moire may appear as checkered
patterns bands or dots. Descreen preprocessing can minimize the transfer of
moire patterns into your image file.
Besides a default setting of No Descreen, The Descreen selector provides
three grades of descreen preprocessing as described below.
No Descreen
No descreening.
Art print (175 lpi)
The Art print selection is used to smooth the fine dot pattern found in high
quality art prints and magazines made in resolution higher than 200 dpi.
Magazine (133 lpi)
The Magazine selection is used to smooth the fine dot pattern found in
glossy magazines made in resolution higher than 200 dpi.
Newspaper (88 lpi)
The Newspaper selection is used to smooth the coarse grain pattern commonly
found in newspaper images made in resolution higher than 200 dpi.

Image Control Tools
The Image Control tools are used to control the image displayed in the
preview window. The functions of these tools are described below.
Frame Tool
After a preview image has been created, you can define the boundaries of
the area to be included in your final scan by using the Frame tool.
Use the Frame tool to select a rectangular portion (selection frame), or select
the entire preview screen, for the final scan boundaries. When you select
the Scan button, only the area within the selection frame will be included in
the final scan.
To use the Frame tool:
1. Select the Frame tool by clicking the Frame tool icon.
2. Drag the cursor to the preview area and release the mouse button when
the selection frame is in the desired position.
3. To adjust the selection frame size or shape, drag any edge or corner of the
frame in or out. Alternatively, hold down the Shift key and the mouse
key on one of the sides of the frame and then move the cursor
accordingly. This action will contract or expand the entire frame.
4. To move the selection frame to a different area of the image without
changing its size or shape, place the cursor within the selection frame
and drag it to the desired location.
5. To create an entirely new selection frame, place the cursor outside the
existing selection frame and drag diagonally. The first selection frame
will disappear while the second one remains.
✔ If you hold down the Shift key and drag the mouse diagonally, the
sides of the selection frame will resize proportionally.

Zoom In and Out Tools
The Zoom In and Out tools allow you to zoom in or out on an image within
the Preview window; zooming in (the + sign appears on the zoom cursor)
enlarges the view of the active image so that you can work on small details
in an image. Zooming out (the - sign appears on the zoom cursor) reduces
the view of the active image.
To use the Zoom In tool:
1. Select the Zoom tool by clicking the Zoom In tool icon.
2. Drag the cursor to the preview area. The cursor will change to a
magnifying glass whenever it is in the preview space.
3. Zoom in (magnify an area) by positioning the cursor on an area of
interest in the preview area and clicking the left mouse button. The
preview area will be doubled in size. Click again and the area will again
be enlarged by a factor of 100%. By repeating this process, you can
enlarge the preview display of the image up to 800% of its original size.
As an alternative to the method outlined above, select the Zoom tool and
then, while holding the mouse key down, drag the cursor over the area
you want to enlarge. A solid frame, defining the area of enlargement, will
appear while the mouse key is being held down. Upon release of the
mouse key, the defined area will be enlarged.
To use the Zoom Out tool:
1. Select the Zoom Out tool by clicking the Zoom Out tool icon.
2. Drag the cursor to the preview area. The cursor will change to a
magnifying glass whenever it is in the preview space.
3. Zoom out by positioning the cursor in the preview area and clicking the
left mouse button.
✔ The Zoom In and Out tools do not affect the image produced by the
Scan control. It only affects the Preview display.

Width and Height Indicators
The Width and Height indicators will display the width and height of the
frame defined with the Frame tool.
File Size Indicator
The file size indicator will display the file size that will result for the
scanned image defined with Frame tool.
Prescan Button
The Prescan button is used to obtain a low resolution preview of the
document. The prescanned document will appear in the Preview Window.
Scan Button
The Scan button is used to obtain the final scan of the document after all of
the enhancement features have been applied to the prescanned document.
When Scan is selected, the scanned image does not appear in the Preview
Window. It appears in the TWAIN compliant application from which the
scan was originated.

Others Problems
Symptom
Cause and Solution
¥ There was an error writing to
LPT1: for the printer: The
parameter is incorrect.
¥ COM port initialization failed.
Check COM port parameters in
Modem properties dialog
¥ Modem initialization failed.
Switch on the modem and
check cable connection.
¥ Device canÕt be set to the H/W
mode you want.
¥ Port is disabled. Check if the
port is properly connected, or
power is on then restart your
computer
¥ TWAIN error occurred
¥ [Critical]: TWAIN is not
available.
¥ There were critical errors.
Program will not continue.
¥ While an application use LPT1 or SmarThru Fax
Port, the other application canÕt use them
concurrently.
So if ÒAutomatically answer for incoming calls
after (rings):Ó option is checked of Fax Gate
Properties,
You canÕt scan images or print documents.
If you want to scan or print, uncheck the option
and restart SmarThru.
If ÒAutomatically answer for incoming calls
after(rings):Ó option is not checked, one of printing,
scanning, faxing may be already processing and
another job try to process.
Then cancel one of them, redo canceled job after
another job is finished.
¥ The MFP does not allow dual job, so printing,
scanning faxing canÕt process concurrently.
Cancel and redo later job after the MFP finishes
current processing.
To install the MFP driver in
network environment
¥ Your MFP driver supports only Microsoft network
such as Windows 3.x, Windows 95/98 and
Windows NT 4.0.
¥ You should install the driver onto both PCs (Server
