Scans are Too Light (or Dark)

If your scans are coming in too light or too dark, there are some settings you can adjust:

  1. Start a scan in FileCenter
  2. On the Scan dialog, look at the Advanced tab
  3. If you're scanning in black-and-white, you'll want to adjust the Threshold
  4. If you're scanning in grayscale or color, you'll want to adjust the Brightness and/or Contrast
  5. Click the Save button right above to save this level (otherwise it will rever to the default the next time you scan)

You'll have to do a few scans to get the right level set. We recommend you do this scanning in the Edit tab of FileCenter so you can see your results.

A better solution starts right here.
