If scans are not coming out right, the problem might not be with the way that the document is scanned. In such cases, you try scanner calibration. This process of calibration will ensure that what is scanned, what is printed and what is seen on the screen is basically the same thing. Along with printer and monitor calibration, scanner calibration helps to create the best color-match from three available devices.


Make corrections to your color through Corel Paint, Adobe Photoshop or other various image editors. However, if the scans seem to be having the same problems such as the scans being extremely dark or having a reddish tinge, and have to be corrected all the time, in such cases calibrating the scanner will be able to save a lot of time where editing of images is concerned.


Calibrating monitors and printers are the first steps towards calibrating a scanner. Thereafter, scan something and make the necessary edits or adjustments, so that the monitor displays along with the scanned image and the printer output, show the same colors. And so it’s necessary to be familiar with scanning software as well as the adjustments that are available.


It’s a good idea to print a test image, in case the printer has been calibrated. You can then scan the digital test image print, and use this to visually calibrate the scanner to the printer output. It’s important that all auto color correction is switched off, prior to scanning for calibration. After the scanning is completed, either make adjustments to the scanner or make adjustments to the scanning software. After making adjustments, rescan, until the output of the scan matches with the printed output and monitor display.
