Additional Scanning Settings - Advanced Settings Tab

You can select these additional scanning settings on the Epson Scan 2 Advanced Settings tab. Not all adjustment settings may be available, depending on other settings you have chosen.

Unsharp Mask
Makes the edges of certain image areas clearer. Turn off this option to leave softer edges.
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.)
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.
Adjusts the level at which black areas in text and line art are delineated, improving text recognition in OCR (Optical Character Recognition) programs.
Color Enhance
Enhances the red, green, or blue shades in the scanned image.
Adjusts the overall lightness and darkness of the scanned image.
Adjusts the difference between the light and dark areas of the overall scanned image.
Adjusts the midtone density of the scanned image.
Skip Blank Pages
If the scanner detects marks from the other side of a blank page and adds the marks to the scanned image, adjust this setting to prevent this.
Edge Fill
Corrects shadowing around the edges of the image by filling the shadows with the color you select.
Correct Document Skew
Corrects skewed originals, image contents, or both.
