Using the Scanner as a Copier

You can use your scanner along with a printer connected to your computer just like you would use a copy machine. You can even enlarge and reduce, restore faded colors, remove dust, enhance text, and adjust image brightness and contrast as you copy.

Place your original document, photo, film, or slide on the scanner. See one of these sections for instructions:

Start the EPSON Copy Utility in one of these ways:

  • Press the Copy button.

  • Windows: Click Start > Programs or All Programs > EPSON Creativity Suite > Copy Utility > EPSON Copy Utility.

  • Mac OS X: Open the Applications > EPSON > Creativity Suite > Copy Utility folders and double-click the EPSON Copy Utility icon.


Note:

Do not create a shortcut to the Copy Utility or drag its program icon to the desktop. You can’t start the Copy Utility that way and will need to reinstall the program.

    You see the Copy Utility window:

Select your scanner from the Scanner list at the top of the window.

Select your printer from the Printer list.

Click the Source Type box, select the type of document you are copying, and click OK. See the table below for guidance:

Note:

If you are printing on certain EPSON printers, you see the printer settings window. See your printer documentation for instructions on selecting settings.

If you want to enlarge or reduce your image as you copy it, click the Copy Size box, select the enlargement/reduction, and click OK.


Note:

If you are printing on an EPSON printer that supports borderless printing, you can select options for Margins (borders) or No Margins (borderless).

If you are copying a faded photo and want to restore the colors, click the Color Restoration checkbox. (It is available only when the Source Type is Photo, Negative Film, or Positive Film.)

If you need to remove dust marks from film strips or slides as you copy, click the Dust Removal checkbox. (It is available only when the Source Type is Negative Film or Positive Film.)

If you are copying a color or black-and-white document, you can improve the definition of text and line art by leaving the Text Enhancement checkbox checked. (It is available only when the Source Type is one of the Document options.)

If you need to adjust the lightness or darkness of your original or adjust the contrast between them as you copy, click the slider beneath the Brightness and/or Contrast settings. (Contrast is only adjustable when the Source Type is Photo, Negative Film, or Positive Film.)

Click the arrow in the Copies box to select the number of copies you want, if necessary.

When you are ready to scan and print, click the Copy button.


Note:

If you want to preview your scan before printing it or make additional copy settings, click the Preview/Custom button at the bottom of the window. Click Help in the Copy Utility for instructions on using the Custom Copy features.
