|Analog gamma correction
||Define the value for analog gamma correction. *
Value between 1.0 and 2.0 .
(Analog gamma correction doesn't reduce the number of used colors)
||Define the intensity that shall be considered white. *
||Define the intensity that shall be considered black. *
||Define the contrast of the image - only available in halftone-mode.
||Define the brightness of the image - only available in halftone-mode.
||Define the minimum intensity to get a white point- only available in
|Use custom gamma table
||Use free definable scanner internal digital gamma table.
If you enable this option, the gamma correction is done inside the
scanner. If you have a scanner with more than 8/24 bits/pixel, the image
is scanned with the maximum available bit depth. The gamma correction does
transform the image form the internal bit depth to the selected output
bit depth (see below).
The frontends do handle the usage of the gamma table different. If
you use xsane, you should enable this option to use the maximum available
bit depth (otherwise xsane does the conversion with the selected output
(Side-effect: digital gamma correction may reduce the number of used
colors -especally if the used bit depth is low.)
||Use quality white calibration. *
|Double optical resolution
||Use lens 2 on high end scanners, this reduces the scanwidth and increases
the maximum scanresolution. *
||Inverts color intensity - for scanning negatives.
||Image depth in bits/sample the scanner sends to the computer, normally
8 in grayscale and color mode. Some scanners support more than 8bits/sample,
but only few file formats support it. If your scanner supports more than
8bis/sample you already get an improvement if you set the bit detpth to
8 and enable the option use custom gamma table (see above) because
the scanner internal gamma correction is done with the maximum available
*** There is normally no reason to use more than 8 bits/sample! ***
||Enable extended lamp-warmup. *
