Applying a Preset Tone Curve
You can finely adjust the contrast within an image by applying
one of the preset tone curves. This allows more control over the
image when used in conjunction with the Auto Exposure settings
in the Image Controls dialog box. The tone correction list in the
Tone Correction dialog box provides the six most common tone
correction curves, described below.
Linear
A linear tone curve has no tone correction. Use this setting if you
are satisfied with the tone of the preview image.

Channels
Click an option button under channels to select the color whose
tone curve you want to adjust. When the master channel at the
top is selected, your adjustments affect all three colors. Selecting
one of the other channels allows you to adjust red, green, or blue
only.
Tone curve editor
Moving the mouse pointer into the tone curve editor causes it to
change to a finger. Use this pointer to drag any of the five points
in the curve and change its shape. The x-axis of the curve is the
brightness of the original (input values) while the y-axis is the
brightness of the scanned image (output values).
To change the tone curve back to its default, select Linear in the
tone correction list.
Output values
These are the current values for output data in accordance with
the current locations of the points inside the tone curve editor.
These values change when you drag points in the tone curve
editor, or you can enter in values here to change the shape of the
tone curve. Each value can be adjusted within the range of 0 to 255.
Note:
❏ Each output value name has a check box to the left of it. Highlight
and Shadow are always selected, but you can select or clear 1/4 Tone,
Midtone, and 3/4 Tone by clicking their check boxes.
❏ When a value’s check box is clear, its point on the tone curve editor
automatically shifts to smooth out the tone curve when one of the
other points is moved.
❏ When a value’s check box is selected, it means that its point is fixed
and it will not shift when other points are moved.

Return to zoom preview button
Clicking the return to zoom preview button restores the image to
the previous zoom. This button is available only when a marquee
has been previously zoomed. This restores the zoom preview
from memory, which is quicker than rescanning the same zoomed
area by clicking the zoom preview button again.
Marquees
A marquee is a frame around an image, or a part of an image.
Marquees are often used in scanning and image-editing software
to select only the most important part of an image.
Making and modifying marquees
Move the pointer over the image in the Preview window. The
pointer becomes a set of cross-hairs. Drag (move the mouse while
holding down the mouse button) the cross-hairs over any area of
the image, and a dotted frame appears. The point where you first
clicked is anchored, but the rest of the frame is sizable and
movable. After you finish creating a marquee, you can resize and
move it as described below.

Multiple marquees
You can make multiple marquees in one image to scan the most
important parts while ignoring the rest. It is also useful to set
several items on the document table and scan all of them in one
time. Marquees can be different sizes, and they can overlap. Extra
marquees can be made anywhere except on the frame of another
marquee. You can make settings on each marquee.
You can begin a marquee anywhere the pointer appears as crosshairs. To distinguish the active marquee from other marquees,
look at the marquee frames. The active marquee has moving
dotted line of the frame as shown below. If you created multiple
marquees and want to make a inactive marquee active, just point
the cursor at the edge of the marquee and click. The marquee
becomes active.
