This option sets the output (PDF, JPEG, TIFF, SECURE PDF, or XPS) for the scanned image.
PDF—Creates a single file with multiple pages, viewable with Adobe Reader. Adobe Reader is provided free by Adobe at www.adobe.com.
JPEG—Creates and attaches a separate file for each page of your original document, viewable by most Web browsers and graphics programs
TIFF—Creates multiple files or a single file. If Multi-page TIFF is turned off in the Settings menu of the Embedded Web Server, then TIFF saves one page in each file. The file size is usually larger than an equivalent JPEG.
Secure PDF—Creates an encrypted PDF file that protects the file contents from unauthorized access
XPS—Creates a single XPS file with multiple pages, viewable using an Internet Explorer-hosted viewer and the .NET Framework, or by downloading a third party standalone viewer
This option tells the printer the original document type. Choose from Text, Text/Photo, or Photo. Content affects the quality and size of your scanned file.
Text—Emphasizes sharp, black, high-resolution text against a clean, white background
Text/Photo—Used when the original documents are a mixture of text and graphics or pictures
Photo—Tells the scanner to pay extra attention to graphics and pictures. This setting increases the time it takes to scan, but emphasizes a reproduction of the full dynamic range of tones in the original document. This increases the amount of information saved.
This option tells the printer the color of the original documents. You can select Gray, BW (Black and White), or Color.
This option sets the size of the documents you are going to scan. When Original Size is set to Mixed Sizes, you can scan an original document that contains mixed paper sizes (letter- and legal-size pages).
This option tells the printer whether the original document is in portrait or landscape orientation and then changes the Sides and Binding settings to match the original document orientation.
This option informs the printer if your original document is simplex (printed on one side) or duplex (printed on both sides). This lets the scanner know what needs to be scanned for inclusion in the document.
This option adjusts how light or dark your scanned documents will turn out in relation to the original document.
This option adjusts the output quality of your file. Increasing the image resolution increases the file size and the time needed to scan your original document. Image resolution can be decreased to reduce the file size.
This option lets you adjust Background Removal, Contrast, Shadow Detail, Sharpness, and Color Dropout before you scan the document. It also lets you Scan edge to edge, as a Mirror Image, or as a Negative Image.
Background Removal—Adjusts the white portion of the output. Click the arrow buttons to increase or decrease the white portion.
Contrast—Click the arrow buttons to increase or decrease the contrast.
Shadow Detail—Click the arrow buttons to increase or decrease the visible detail in the shadows.

Color Dropout Threshold—Click the arrow buttons to increase or decrease the amount of color dropout.
Scan edge to edge—Select this box to scan edge to edge.
Mirror Image—Select this box to create a mirror image scan.
