Overview of EPSON Smart Panel

Starting EPSON Smart Panel

EPSON Smart Panel allows you to scan and send data directly to an assigned application, the EPSON photo-sharing site, or your PDA (Personal Digital Assistant). You can also obtain photos and documents in digital form quickly and easily.

When you install the scanner software, EPSON Smart Panel is also installed at the same time. For information on the installation, refer to the Start Here poster.

  • If you plan to scan transparent materials from the EPSON Smart Panel application, refer to the EPSON Smart Panel online help for details.
  • If you use EPSON Photo Site or Scan to P.I.M. File features, you can scan images using PRINT Image Matching. For information on PRINT Image Matching, see PRINT Image Matching.

PRINT Image Matching

PRINT Image Matching is a standardized method of recording a wider range of color information to enhance the quality of your scanned images. When you use EPSON Photo Site or Scan to P.I.M. File features, PRINT Image Matching information is recorded in the resulting JPEG or TIFF image files. Then, by using an application and printer compatible with PRINT Image Matching, you can effortlessly achieve printouts that come to life with a dynamic range of brilliant colors.

PRINT Image Matching information does not change the image data or the way the image is displayed on a computer screen.
