Selecting Image Quality/Density/Enlarging or Reducing Copy


Selecting the Type of Original for Copying

You can select the optical image quality for the copy depending on the original type, such as text-only documents, documents with charts and graphs, or magazine photos.

<Copy> <Other Settings> <Original Type> Select the original type
<Text/Photo/Map (Speed)>Priority is given to speed over image quality. This setting is only effective when selected for color copying.
<Text/Photo/Map>Suitable when copying originals that contain both text and photos, or originals that include detailed lines, such as maps.
<Text/Photo/Map (Quality)>Priority is given to image quality over speed. You can also adjust the level of priority given to the quality of the text or photos. Adjust the setting on the scale, and select <Apply>.
<Printed Image>Suitable when making a clear copy of originals that contain printed photos (photos made of halftone dots), such as magazines or pamphlets.

Adjusting Density

Adjust the density of the scan if the text or images in an original are excessively light or dark. For example, you can sharpen text and lines written using a pencil.
Adjusting Entire Density
<Density> Adjust the density <Close>

Adjust the background density. You can make a clear copy of originals with colored backgrounds, or originals such as a newspaper that is printed on thin paper on which text or images on the other side are visible through the paper.
Adjusting the Background Density
<Density> <Background Density> <Adjust (Manual)> Adjust the background density <Apply> <Close>
  • Depending on the original color, portions other than the background may be affected.
  • If you select <Density by Color>, you can adjust the background density for each color.

Enlarging or Reducing

You can enlarge or reduce copies by using a preset copy ratio such as <STMT->LTR>, or by setting a custom copy ratio in increments of 1 %.
  • If you make a setting for <N on 1> after setting the copy ratio, the setting of reduction ratio in <N on 1> takes priority.

<Copy Ratio> Select the copy ratio

Preset copy ratio
Select a copy ratio.
Numeric keys
You can set any copy ratio from 25 to 400% in 1% increments.

Copying Multiple Documents onto One Sheet (N on 1)

You can reduce the size of a multiple-page original and arrange all pages on one side of the paper. You can save the number of sheets as the document can be copied on fewer pages than those of the original.
  • Using <N on 1> reduces the copy ratio automatically (the copy ratio is displayed on the screen). If the copying process has not started, you can further reduce the image size by lowering the numeric value that is automatically displayed. But the edges of the original might not be copied if you increase it.
  • <N on 1> is not available when using <Erase Frame>.
  • When you copy multiple originals onto one page, margins may be created in the copied image.

<Copy> <Other Settings> <N on 1> Select the number of pages to be combined, and select <Next> Select the original size on the <Scan Size> On the <Output Size> screen, select the paper source that contains the paper you want to use

Number of pages to be combined
Select the number of pages to be combined on one side of paper. For example, <4 on 1> means that "a four-page original can be combined on a single sheet."
Specify how to arrange the originals on the page.
