Scanner Image Settings

For the most part, we use the images as we get them from the scanner. However, there are a few adjustments you can make in FileCenter.

When you scan in FileCenter, select the "Advanced" tab on the Scan dialog. Here you can adjust the settings.

With a color scan, "Brightness" and "Contrast" are usually the primary settings, and the default setting is normally mid-way on both of them. It will take some time to play with them and get them honed in, but once you get the settings right, click the little "Save" button above those settings.

For black and white scans, you'll use the "Threshold" setting. This determines how dark something has to be before it crosses over from white to black in your image.

For these tests, we recommend you scan in FileCenter's "Edit" tab.

Your scanner may have other image options besides these. On FileCenter's Scan dialog, click "Use Scanner Dialog" then proceed with the scan. Your scanner's own interface will now pop up. This will have all of the options available for your scanner.

A better solution starts right here.
