I'm scanning a color document but the colors don't match the original. What should I do?
Try the following:
- You may need to perform a calibration. See Calibrating the Scanner for details.
- Make sure the Image Type setting is correct.
- Make sure to enable the Embed ICC Profile setting. In the Save As or File Save Settings window, select JPEG or TIFF as the File Type or Type setting. Click Options, then select the Embed 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).
