If the original contains photographs, illustrations, or diagrams with complex shading patterns or grays, select the appropriate original type to optimize image clarity.
Select [Text] to send high-contrast black-and-white image originals. Use this setting when you only want to send clearer text, even if the original contains text and photographs.
Text / Line Art
Select [Text / Line Art] to send high-contrast black-and-white graphic originals at improved resolution. The [Text] mode gives priority to scanning speed; [Text / Line Art] mode gives priority to scanning quality.
Text / Photo
Select [Text / Photo] to send an original containing both a high-contrast black-and-white image, such as text, and a halftone image, such as a photograph.
Select [Photo] to send an original containing a halftone image, such as a photograph or a color original.
Press [Scan Settings].
Make sure that [Original Type] is selected.
Select the original type you require, and then press [OK].
If you select [Text / Line Art], [Text / Photo], or [Photo], the transmission will take longer than when [Text] is selected.
If you send a fax document with [Text / Line Art], [Text / Photo], or [Photo] and the background of the received image is dirty, reduce the density setting and resend the fax. For details about setting the image density, see “Density (Contrast)”.
You can set the original type that is selected right after the machine is turned on or whenever the [Clear Modes] key is pressed. See “Changing the Default Functions of the Fax's Initial Display”.
