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 for instructions.
- Make sure the Embed ICC Profile setting is enabled. 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.)
- 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).
