What is EPSON Scan?

Epson Scan comes with Epson scanners and has simple manual adjustments, but requires vigilance to control the default settings that are not optimal for archival scanning and can reappear unexpectedly. The histogram display has low resolution and the manual settings do not provide precise, reliable handling of clipping when adjusting tone and color. Epson Scan has few options for saving and reusing settings and does not have built-in settings or automated processes for handling negative film. Extensive use of the histogram and curves can be needed to handle negatives.
