The scanned colors differ from the original colors. What should I do?
Try the following:
- Make sure the Image Type setting is correct. See Scanning Documents Using Epson Scan or Scanning Documents Using Document Capture Pro (Windows only) for instructions.
- If you are using Epson Scan, make sure to enable Embed ICC Profile setting. In the File Save Settings window, select JPEG or TIFF as the Type setting. Click Options, then select the Embed ICC Profile check box. To access the File Save Settings window, see Selecting File Save Settings Using Epson Scan.
- If you are using Document Capture Pro, make sure to enable the Embed ICC Profile setting. In the window that appears after you select a Destination icon, select JPEG or TIFF as the File Type setting. Click Options, then select the EMmbed ICC Profile check box.
- Printed colors can never exactly match the colors on your monitor because printers and monitors use different color systems: monitors use RGB (red, green, and blue) and printers typically use CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black).
