Selecting Image Quality/Density/Enlarging or Reducing Copy

Solution

Selecting Document Type

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

(COPY/SCAN) <Original Type> Select the document type

<Text>
Suitable when copying documents that only contain text.
<Text/Photo (High Speed)>
Suitable when copying documents that contain both text and photos. Priority is given to speed over image quality.
<Text/Photo>
Suitable when copying documents that contain both text and photos.
<Photo>
Suitable when copying documents that contain printed photos, such as magazines or pamphlets.
NOTE
If <Text/Photo (High Speed)>, <Text/Photo>, or <Photo> is selected and <Density> is set to <Auto Density>, it changes to Manual Density.

Adjusting Density

You can adjust the density of the copy if the text or images in a document are too light or dark. You can also automatically set an optimal density for a document.

(COPY/SCAN) <Density> Adjust the density


<Auto Density>
An optimal density for the document is automatically set.
<Original Type> is automatically set to <Text>.
<Manual Density>
Use / to adjust the density.

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%.

(COPY/SCAN) <Copy Ratio> Select the copy ratio

Preset copy ratio
Select a copy ratio.

Copying Multiple Documents onto One Sheet (2 on 1/4 on 1)

You can copy two or four documents onto a single sheet at a reduced size. This decreases the number of pages, enabling you to save paper.

NOTE
  • Using <2 on 1>/<4 on 1> reduces the copy ratio automatically (the copy ratio is displayed on the screen). You can increase or further reduce the copy ratio before pressing , but the edges of the document might not be copied if you increase it.
  • <2 on 1>/<4 on 1> is not available when using <Paper Save Copy> or <ID Card Copy>.
  • When you copy multiple documents onto one page, margins may be created in the copied image.
REFERENCE

(COPY/SCAN) <N on 1> Select <2 on 1> or <4 on 1> Select the document size on the <Scan Size> screen
