My scanned image is distorted. What should I do?

    Try the following:
    • Make sure the document or photo lies flat on the document table. Also make sure your document or photo is not wrinkled or warped.
    • Make sure you do not move the document or photo, or your scanner while scanning.
    • Make sure the scanner is placed on a flat, stable surface.
    • Select the Unsharp Mask check box in the Office Mode or Professional Mode window. See Adjusting the Color and Other Image Settings.
    • Adjust the Auto Exposure setting in the Professional Mode window. See Adjusting the Color and Other Image Settings.
    • Click Configuration, select the Color tab, and select Color Control and Continuous auto exposure in the Color menu.
    • Click Configuration, select the Color tab, and click Recommended Value to return the Auto Exposure setting to the default.
