Scanning RAW (Uncalibrated) with Epson-brand Scanners

Note: This is part of a series of Scanning Guides. Start HERE.

Placing Your Paper in the Scanner
Do not alight your paper against the edge of the scanner, doing this will cut off the edges of it. Instead place in the center of your scanner, it's okay if it's crooked, you will fix it in editing. If you're scanning a manual, consider removing the staples for a higher quality scan. Also, playing a heavy object, such as a book, on top of your scanner will give it pressure to flatten the paper being scanned for perfect focus.

Software and Settings
Download the "Scanner Driver and Epson Scan Utility" here.
Configure your Epson software to the below settings:

  • Next, click on "Configuration" at the bottom center of the app > "No Color Correction", then "OK" to close out.
  • Now that you're all set up, press "Scan" on the app.
  • A new window will pop up, make sure Image Format Type is set to "TIFF".
  • The result of these settings will be a RAW scanner sensor output. It will result in a "flat" color profile that may not look pretty. However, this preserves the most image data for archiving purposes.
