How To

Choose a Scanning Mode in EPSON Scan

EPSON Scan provides four modes for you to make scan settings: Full Auto Mode, Home Mode, Office Mode, and Professional Mode.

Note:
  • The Full Auto Mode cannot be used when the optional Automatic Document Feeder is installed.
  • The Office Mode can be used only when the optional Automatic Document Feeder is installed.

Full Auto Mode:
The Full Auto Mode makes scanning simple, freeing you from complex settings or adjustments.

Home Mode:
The Home Mode enables you to adjust the basic image settings for scanned images.

Office Mode:
The Office Mode is helpful when you need to scan a large number of documents with the same size, using the optional Automatic Document Feeder. You can scan documents easily and quickly without preview in this mode.

Professional Mode:
In the Professional Mode, there are many options available to give you greater control over your scanning. You can sharpen, correct, or enhance your images before scanning them in the Professional Mode.

The following table indicates the suitable mode to use according to the scanning purpose.
