Text: Emphasizes sharp, black, high-resolution text against a clean, white background.
Text/Photo: Used when the original documents are a mixture of text and graphics or pictures.
Photo: Tells the scanner to pay extra attention to graphics and pictures. This setting takes
longer to scan but emphasizes a reproduction of the full dynamic range of tones in the
original document. This increases the amount of information saved.
Color: Sets the scan type and output for the copy. Color documents can be scanned and sent
to an FTP site, PC, or e-mail address. The MFP will print color documents in grayscale only.
Advanced Options: Accesses the Transmission Log, Edge Erase, or Darkness settings.
Transmission Log: Prints the transmission log or transmission error log.
Edge Erase: Eliminates smudges or information around the edges of your document. You
can choose to eliminate an equal area around all four sides, or pick a particular edge. Edge
Erase will erase whatever is within the area selected and leave nothing printed on that portion
of the paper.
Darkness: Adjusts how light or dark your scanned documents will turn out.
