Scanning RAW Images with VueScan


Open up VueScan and make sure to set the Input tab with the following settings. Also below is a screenshot of how it might look (Options differ depending on scanner model used) -
    • Options: Professional
    • Task: Profile Scanner
    • Bits per pixel: 24 bit RGB (You can do up to 48 bit RGB if you like but it is not required.)
    • Scan resolution: Custom
    • Scan dpi: 800 for Epson brand scanners, 1200 for Canon brand scanners. 600dpi is acceptable only if you're unable to go higher without image issues, or what you're scanning is in great shape and undamaged.
    • Source: Make sure your scanner is visible / selected.

Next ensure the "Crop" tab is set to "Crop size: Auto".

Finally in the "Output" tab make the following changes:
    • Uncheck "PDF file".
    • Check "Raw file".
    • Tiff file type: "24 bit" (You can do up to 48 bit RGB if you like but it is not required.)
    • Raw output with: "Scan"
  1. In the upper left app menu choose "File" > "Save Settings".
  2. In the bottom left of the app choose "Preview" to see your scan, at least for me usually this doesn't look like my final output, not sure if it's a Vuescan bug or what but don't worry if the preview looks off, go ahead and draw your cropping box around your image and select the Scan button. If your output looks like a dark RAW images you're likely good to go!
