If you start your
application software
before turning on
your scanner, the

5 It’s a good idea to preview your image before you actually scan so you
can make any necessary changes. See Previewing Your Scan for
preview instructions. See Advanced Scanning for information on the
rest of the TWAIN Pro settings.

Previewing Your Scan
You can preview your image in a separate Preview window to see the
effects of your settings before scanning. Previewing also allows you
to determine the width and height of the scanned image and the final
file size.
To crop the image or scan multiple portions of an image, you can preview
and use a marquee. See Using Marquees.
You cannot preview
an image that
exceeds available
memory or disk
space.
Although the image in
the Preview window
changes when you
modify settings, the
settings don’t affect
the real image until
you scan it.

Click the

See Using Marquees for more information.
Click the
Return to Full Preview button to restore the zoomed
marquee to a full preview (available only when the preview image or
marquee is zoomed).
Click the
Return to Zoom Preview button to restore the image to the
previous zoomed size (available only when the marquee was zoomed
previously). This restores the zoomed preview from memory, which is
quicker than clicking the Zoom Preview button again.
Using Marquees
A marquee is a frame around an entire image, or a portion of an image so
you can scan only the most important part. You can even create multiple
marquees on one or more images and scan them one at a time, if your
application software supports multiple image windows.
To create a marquee, follow these steps:
1 Move the mouse pointer over the image in the Preview window. The
pointer becomes a cross hair.
2 Position the pointer in the corner of the area you want to select and
press the mouse button.
Scanning from Your Application Software
Page 22
3 Drag the mouse across the image, creating a marquee (or frame).
4 Release the button when the marquee contains the image area you
want.
If you need to adjust the marquee size or position, see Resizing and
Moving Marquees. To create additional marquees, see Creating Multiple
Marquees. To delete or duplicate a marquee, see Deleting and
Duplicating Marquees.
Resizing and Moving Marquees
To resize a marquee, place the mouse pointer over any of the eight boxes
on its edge. The pointer changes to a double-headed arrow. Click the
mouse button and drag the box up, down, sideways, or diagonally to the
size you want.
Scanning from Your Application Software
Page 23
To resize the marquee proportionally, press the Shift key and drag the
box (Windows only).
To move a marquee, place the mouse pointer anywhere on the edge of
the marquee. The pointer changes to a hand. Click the mouse button and
drag the entire marquee to move it where you want it.
To limit movement of the marquee to vertical or horizontal movement,
press the Shift key and drag the marquee up and down or side to side
(Windows only).
Scanning from Your Application Software
Page 24
Creating Multiple Marquees
You can create multiple marquees in one image to sequentially scan only
the most important parts while ignoring the rest. You can also scan
multiple images with a marquee on each.
Marquees can be different sizes and they can overlap. Additional
marquees can be made anywhere except on the frame of another
marquee. The
Total Marquees icon indicates how may marquees
have been created.
To create an additional marquee, draw a new one as described in Using
Marquees or duplicate the active one as described in Deleting and
Duplicating Marquees.
active
marquee
To distinguish the active marquee from other marquees, check the
marquee frame. The active marquee has eight small boxes on it. To
select a different marquee as the active one, move the mouse pointer to
Scanning from Your Application Software
Page 25
the corner of an inactive marquee. The pointer changes to a single arrow
(Windows). Click the mouse button once to select it as the active
marquee.
Once you’ve created multiple marquees, you can create different settings
for each one and save them with a unique name for later use, if you want.
See Saving Custom Settings for details.
When you’ve finished selecting your settings, you can batch scan all the
marquees at once using the Scan All button. Click Scan All in the
EPSON TWAIN Pro window. TWAIN Pro loads each marquee into your
application as a separate image, one at a time. When you’re finished,
close EPSON TWAIN Pro and modify and save your images in your
application.
Deleting and Duplicating Marquees
You can also delete
the active marquee
by pressing the
Delete key on your
keyboard.
To delete a marquee, make it the active marquee (as described under
Creating Multiple Marquees). Then click the
Delete Marquee button
to delete it.
To create another marquee the same size as the active marquee, click
the
Duplicate Marquee button.
