Scanning Basics

Selecting a Mode

Full Auto mode
Manual mode

EPSON TWAIN offers two modes for scanning: Full Auto mode and Manual mode.

Full Auto mode

In the Full Auto mode, an image is automatically optimized. If you want to scan quickly and easily without changing any complex settings, select the Full Auto mode. To have more control over your scanning settings, click Cancel during previewing and Document Type Recognition and then click the Manual Mode button to open the Manual mode window.

Depending on the image you want to scan, you may not get the expected scanned image. In this case, scan the image in the Manual mode.


Manual mode

In the Manual mode, there are many more options available to give you greater control over your scanning. If you want to sharpen, correct, enhance or preview your images before scanning them, select the Manual mode. If you do not need all the options that the Manual mode provides, click the Full Auto Mode button to open the Full Auto mode window.
