Available Image Adjustments - Home Mode

You can select these Image Adjustments options in Epson Scan Home Mode.


Note: Select the Image Option checkbox if you need to set any of the grayed-out image adjustments. Not all adjustment settings may be available, depending on the Document Type and Image Type setting. Click the Brightness button to access additional settings.
Descreening
Removes the ripple pattern that might appear in subtly shaded image areas, such as skin tones. This option improves results when scanning magazines or newspapers. (The results of descreening do not appear in the preview image, only in your scanned image.)
Color Restoration
Restores the colors in faded photos automatically.
Backlight Correction
Removes shadows from photos that have too much background light.
DIGITAL ICE Technology
Removes stubborn dust and scratch marks from photos. The effects of DIGITAL ICE Technology do not appear in the Preview of the image; you must scan the original to see the results.
Text Enhancement
Sharpens the appearance of letters in text documents.
Auto Area Segmentation
Makes grayscale images clearer and text recognition more accurate by separating the text from the graphics.
Brightness
Adjusts the overall lightness and darkness of the scanned image.
Contrast
Adjusts the difference between the light and dark areas of the overall scanned image.
Threshold
Adjusts the level at which black areas in text and line art are delineated, improving text recognition in OCR (Optical Character Recognition) programs.
