Image Processing

  • Prevent Bleed Through/Remove Background
    Prevents the background or original image on the reverse side of thin originals from appearing in scanned images.

  • Document orientation
    The text orientation on each fed page is detected, and the scanned image is rotated in 90-degree increments as necessary to match.

  • Deskew
    If a scanned image is detected to be skewed, the skewed image is straightened.
    Example of Deskew

  • Color Drop-out
    The scanner is equipped with a Color Drop-out function that enables you to specify a color for the scanner to omit from scanned images during monochrome or grayscale scanning.

  • Thickening Text and Lines
    If text and lines in scanned images are very thin, this function corrects for their thickness while scanning.
