Options for Recommended, ColorSync, None

 

Recommended

This option displays colors vividly on computer monitors. It is recommended for most purposes.

Canon ColorGear (Windows)

ColorSync (Mac)

This option uses the Canon ColorGear / ColorSync color management system. It makes colors consistent between the scanned item, the monitor and a color printer.

None

No color correction is performed by ScanGear CS with this option.

 This category is enabled when the Color mode is set to Color or Color (48 bit).

 The Color tab functions cannot be used when the Canon ColorGear option is selected since color correction is automated with this option. (The Color tab will cease to display).

 The Auto tone function cannot be used when the None option or Canon ColorGear option is selected.

 This category is set to Recommended by default when ScanGear CS is first installed.

About Canon ColorGear (Windows) / ColorSync (Mac)

You can set the source, target and monitor profiles when the Canon ColorGear option is selected.

Source (Scanner)

Sets the scanner profile.

Target

Sets the RGB color space profile such as sRGB, Adobe RGB, monitor profile, printer profile, etc.

Monitor

  • If a check mark is placed beside this category, the preview image is converted to the monitor's RGB color space and displayed. The final scan is converted to the color space specified in the output profile.

  • If the check mark is removed from this category, both the preview image and final scan are converted to the color space specified in the output profile.

 Place a check mark here to scan if you are using an application that supports a color management system.

 

Color management systems will operate correctly when the settings are properly set in ScanGear CS, the operating system (monitor settings), the application* and the printer driver.

 The application must support color management systems. Adobe Photoshop (Ver. 5.0 or more), Adobe Photoshop Elements and Adobe Illustrator (Ver. 9.0 or more) are among the programs that do. The ArcSoft PhotoStudio program supplied with this scanner does not. To correct the color with a color management system, please use an application that supports it.
