How to Scan
This section gives you an overview of the scanning process and some tips for getting
the best scan. It also includes step-by-step scanning instructions.
Preparing to Scan
Scanning an image allows you to reproduce it many times with little or no loss of
quality. You can also enlarge, reduce, or change the color of the image without
affecting your original.
Scans are always performed from within a host application (the application into which
you plan to import the scanned image or document, such as Adobe PhotoDeluxe).
You have to start this application before you can access your scanner software. Once
you’ve started your application, you need to select the scanner “source” you want to
scan with. Your EPSON Perfection 636U scanner comes with the EPSON TWAIN
driver. You need to select this driver as the source in your application.
22
As with most projects, planning ahead can save you time. Scanning is a multi-step
process, as shown in the following chart.
Select an image to scan
The type of image you’re scanning
determines what input setting you
select in your software.
Open your host application
This is the software application
where you’ll import your scanned
image.

This is the scanner driver you’re
using. Your scanner comes with

If you are scanning between 1201 and 2400 dpi, EPSON recommends you keep your scan area
to 4 × 11.7 inches to maintain true hardware resolution. Above 2400 dpi, you will be using
software interpolation to increase the resolution.
PressWriter for iMac does not have a TWAIN scan function,
but you can import a scanned image from another application
using the Object, Import Image function.

Tips for Getting the Best Scan
Getting the best scan possible depends on several factors, including the quality of your
original and the resolution you select. The better your original is, the better your scan
will be. While you can make some corrections in your scanning software, you’ll need
to do major photo retouching in a program such as Adobe PhotoDeluxe to correct or
mask problems such as a coffee stain on the original image.
Selecting Resolution
Resolution refers to how many dots per inch (dpi) or dots per centimeter (dpcm) your
image contains. The best resolution for a scanned image depends on the type of image
you’re scanning and your final output device.
As a rule of thumb for most images except line art, use a scanning resolution that is
approximately one third of your output resolution. For example, use a scanning
resolution up to 100 dpi with a 300 dpi laser printer, and up to 200 dpi with a
600 dpi laser printer. For 1440 dpi ink jet printers, such as the EPSON Stylus®
COLOR or Photo series, use a scanning resolution of approximately 300 dpi. Try a
scanning resolution of 240 dpi for 720 dpi printing.
Keep the following in mind when you choose a resolution:
26
■
The higher a resolution you select, the larger the resulting image file will be. For
example, an 8.5 × 11-inch original scanned at 300 dpi can produce a 24MB file.
The same original scanned at 72 dpi creates only a 1.3MB file. Large files take
longer to process and print, so consider the practical limitations of your computer
system and hard disk drive when selecting a resolution. To keep your file size
manageable, select the lowest possible resolution that gives acceptable quality. If
your final output is for on-screen viewing, you can scan at 72 dpi and reduce your
file size.
■
If you need to scan at a higher resolution, you can reduce the size of the resulting
image file by scanning only part of the image. For information about selecting
part of an image, see “Using Marquees” in your electronic EPSON TWAIN User’s
Guide.
The EPSON Perfection 636U’s maximum hardware resolution of 600 × 2400 dpi is
achieved through EPSON’s advanced Micro Step Drive technology. This technology
enables the EPSON Perfection 636U to achieve a maximum sub-scan or vertical
resolution of 1200 dpi or 2400 dpi using “half-stepping” and “quarter-stepping” of
the scanning carriage to double and quadruple the optical resolution. To prevent
enormous file sizes when scanning at the maximum hardware resolution, EPSON
recommends a maximum scan window of 4 × 11.7 inches. Full 8.5 × 11.7 inch
scanning is available at a sub-scan resolution of 1200 dpi or 9600 dpi interpolated.
Scaling (Resizing) Images
If you plan to enlarge your image, it is better to enlarge it when you’re scanning rather
than in your application. Each time you modify an image, you lose some quality.
Keep in mind when you enlarge a small photo, such as a 35 mm slide or wallet-size
photo, you’ll need to scan at a high enough resolution to retain your image quality,
but not so high that your file size is too large to be efficient.
You must manually adjust the resolution (dpi) to maintain the same image quality
when you resize your image. For example, if you have a 300 dpi 2 × 2-inch image that
you want to enlarge to 4 × 4 (a factor of 200%), increase the Scale setting to 200%
and change the resolution to 600 dpi.
One-Touch Scanning
Your EPSON Perfection 636U features a one-touch scanning button. With
one-touch scanning, you can just load a document in the scanner, press the scanner’s
]Start button, and then PageManager opens EPSON TWAIN automatically. To use
this option, you must first install Presto! PageManager (or another application that
supports linking to scanner events with the Start button on Windows 98) and enable
the scanner monitor utility. For details on how to set up one-touch scanning, see
“Using the Start Button” in your EPSON TWAIN User’s Guide.
Batch Scanning
You can use batch scanning to save time. Batch scanning lets you scan the same image
with several different settings. See “Batch Scanning” in your EPSON TWAIN User’s
Guide for details.

Step-by-Step Scanning Instructions
This section contains step-by-step instructions for using the scanner drivers and
creative software in Windows 98 and iMac. For more details on using the scanner
software, see the EPSON TWAIN User’s Guide on your CD-ROM. For instructions
on using the creative software, see your application’s electronic manual (“Viewing
Your Electronic Manuals” on page 31) or online help.
If your computer fails to recognize the scanner, you won’t see
the EPSON TWAIN driver when you try to select a scanner
source from your host application. In addition, an error
message may appear. If this happens, turn off your scanner
and then turn it back on. Then restart the computer.
Do not connect or disconnect the USB cable while you are
using EPSON TWAIN.
Placing Your Original Document
1. Raise the scanner cover and place
your document face down on the
document table glass. If you’re
scanning a transparency, the
optional transparency unit should
be installed and turned on.
corner of the
document
2. Position the document so the
horizontal and vertical edges are
carefully aligned with the scales
on the top and right side of the
document table.
3. Close the document cover slowly. Be careful not to move the document.
The self-adjusting scanner cover allows you to place thick
documents on the document table glass without removing the
cover. But if your document is too thick to fit under the cover,
you can remove the cover as described on page 33.

Viewing Your Electronic
Manuals
You always have easy access to your electronic manuals—just go to the Main Menu
screen on your scanner software CD-ROM and click the Electronic Documentation
button. If you already have Adobe Acrobat Reader 3.0 on your system, the manual
opens in Acrobat Reader automatically. If you don’t have Acrobat Reader, it is
automatically installed from the CD-ROM and then the manual you selected opens.
Your scanner software CD-ROM includes the following manuals:
■
EPSON Perfection 636U Reference Guide (636Uref.pdf)
■
EPSON TWAIN User’s Guide (636Utwain.pdf)
■
Adobe PhotoDeluxe Home Edition User’s Guide (Windows, PhotoDeluxe.pdf) or
Adobe PhotoDeluxe 2.0 User’s Guide (iMac, PhotoDeluxe.pdf)
■
NewSoft Presto! PageManager User’s Guide (PageManager.pdf)
■
BrØderbund The Print Shop PressWriter User’s Guide (PressWriter.pdf)
For guidelines on viewing your electronic manuals using Acrobat Reader, see
“Navigating a Manual” on the next page.
Copying a Manual to Your Hard Drive
If you prefer to view the electronic manuals from your hard drive instead of the
CD-ROM, you can copy them from the Manuals folder on the CD-ROM. The file
names are listed above.
31
The manuals for some software applications are automatically
copied to your hard drive when you install the software. You
can access these manuals by clicking Start, Programs, the
program name, then the manual name.
Navigating a Manual
When you open an electronic manual, you’ll see this toolbar:
Previous page
First page
Next page
Last page
Show bookmarks and page
With Acrobat Reader, you have several ways to navigate through text:
■
Click on hot topics, which are usually underlined or displayed in a different color.
To find out if a topic is hot, move your cursor over it. If the cursor turns into a
pointing hand, the topic is hot—you can jump to it by clicking once.
■
Use the bookmark section on the left side of the screen to move quickly to the
topic of your choice. Click the Show Bookmarks icon on the toolbar to see the
bookmark section, if the manual has bookmarks. Some manuals only have a table
of contents, but you can also use this to navigate the manual if the topics are hot.
■
Use the arrow buttons in the toolbar or the vertical scroll bar on the right side of
the document to move through a manual. (The box to the left of the scroll bar
displays the current page number.)
For more information, see your Acrobat Reader online guide.
32
Scanner Maintenance
This section gives you basic maintenance instructions and tells you how to transport
your scanner safely.
Scanning Something That Doesn’t Fit Under
the Document Cover
The self-adjusting scanner cover allows you to place
thick documents on the document table glass without
removing the cover. If your document is too thick to
fit under the cover—such as a photo in an album—
you can remove the document cover. To do this,
simply lift the back of the document cover straight up.
When scanning with the cover removed, make
sure no area of the document table is exposed. This
prevents interference from external light.
When reattaching the document cover,
be sure to hold the cover so the hinges
are in a vertical position. Then push
straight down until the cover clicks
into place.
33
Transporting the Scanner
When you transport the scanner a long
distance or store it for an extended time,
follow the steps below to secure the carriage.
1. Remove any optional equipment and
replace the document cover.
2. Turn on the scanner and wait until the
carriage moves to the home position
(toward the back of the scanner). Then
turn off the scanner.
home position
If the carriage does not automatically return to the home
position, slowly raise the front of the scanner and hold it up
until the carriage comes to rest in the home position. Then
turn the transportation lock to the locked position.
If you are using the transparency unit and it is switched on,
the carriage will not move to the home position. Remove the
transparency unit first, then perform the steps above.
3. Use a coin or screwdriver to turn the
transportation lock to the locked
position (toward the top of the
scanner).
34
Cleaning the Scanner
To keep your scanner operating at its best, you should clean it periodically. Before
cleaning, unplug the power cord.
Use a soft cloth to clean the outer case with mild detergent dissolved in water.
If the document table glass gets dirty, clean it with a soft, dry cloth. If the glass is
stained with grease or other hard-to-remove material, use a small amount of glass
cleaner on a soft cloth to remove it. Wipe off any remaining liquid with a dry cloth.
Be sure there’s no dust on your document table. Dust can cause white spots to appear
in your scanned image.
Never use a harsh or abrasive brush or cleaning product to
clean the document table. A damaged glass surface can
decrease the scanning quality.
Never use alcohol, thinner, or corrosive solvent to clean the
scanner. These chemicals can damage the scanner
components as well as the case.
Be careful not to spill liquid into the scanner mechanism or
electronic components. This could permanently damage
them.
Don’t spray lubricants inside the scanner.
Never open the scanner case. If you think repairs or
adjustments are necessary, consult your dealer or contact
EPSON.
