Auto Document Fix Function delivers easy-to-view scan results in high color reproduction of images and clear text
The "Auto Document Fix" function found in CanoScan LiDE 300 is tailored for optimizing scan quality through document analysis and correction. It delivers beautiful and easy-to-view scan results with pictures in high color reproduction and sharp and clear text. "Auto Document Fix" function uses area-by-area image analysis and optimization to achieve perfect scan results. Through multiple advanced image analyses and intelligent technologies, such as color composition analysis and intensity undulating analysis, segments among text characters, pictures and background of the original can be distinguished in high accuracy. Area-by-area correction is then applied to the text and picture segments based on the analysis result, while reducing the show-through problems in background. Texts are emphasized, blackened and with sharpening edge for easy reading, while the color tone and contrast of pictures are well maintained and natural-looking pictures are reproduced with dot smoothing. Hence the overall quality for scanned documents is enhanced.
Auto Slanted Document Correction, automatically rotates slanted document caused by misplacement on scanner
By activating the "Auto Slanted Correction function" before saving the images into documents, scanner will detect the orientation of characters in the documents and rotates them automatically by 90 degrees or 180 degrees to fit vertically or horizontally, allowing users to enjoy reading without checking on the rotation function button every time.
