Scanning Software: EPSON Scan
EPSON traditionally supports its scanners with unified software, tailoring it for the specific device. The powerful and universal scanning program, EPSON Scan, doesn’t practically change from model to model. Its main concept is in allowing the user to choose the scanning mode depending on the user’s own experience. Someone will be satisfied with the simplest mode, while an advanced user may want to set up each parameter manually. The EPSON Perfection 4870 offers three modes:
- Full Auto Mode;
- Home Mode;
- Professional Mode.
Full Auto Mode
Full Auto Mode is the simplest and fully automatic mode
This mode doesn’t require anything from the user. The device itself determines the size of the original by performing pre-scanning and then accomplishes the final phase of digitization. The user can only set up the parameters of the resulting file and choose a few options.
The auto-scanning preferences window
As you see, you can identify the type of the original, set up the resolution (the highest is 1200dpi for this mode) and enable the software Dust Removal technology. Anyway, that’s not little, don’t you think?
