The scanned colors differ from the original colors when using Epson Scan. What should I do?
Try the following:
- Scan quality can be improved by changing the current settings or adjusting the scanned image. See Adjusting the Scanned Image.
- Check the color matching and color management capabilities of your computer, display adapter, and software. Some computers can change the palette of colors on your screen. See your software and hardware manuals for details.
- Use the color management system for your computer: ICM for Windows, or ColorSync for Macintosh. Add a color profile that matches your monitor to improve on-screen color matching. Exact color matching is very difficult. Check your software and monitor documentation for information on color matching and calibration.
- 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).
