Tips for removing background color:

  • A shadow created by the wrinkles of newspaper may still remain. Please eliminate
    the shadow by smoothing out the wrinkles of the document when you scan.
  • If you tick the [Thicken color images] checkbox in the [Image Quality] tab that is displayed by pressing the [Option] button under the [Scanning mode] tab in the ScanSnap setup dialog box, the background color may not be removed completely. Please uncheck the [Thicken color images] checkbox when you use [Remove Newspaper Background Color] function.
  • Please specify the following settings in ScanSnap setup dialog box of ScanSnap Manager before scanning:
    [Scanning] tab:
    • Color mode: [Color] or [Gray]

      Scanning mode option dialog box
      [Image quality] tab: Clear the "Thicken color images" checkbox
