Default Scanner help

Or something.

My scanner seems to hate reds. Everything else scans in fine, but reds are always off and dull and blegh. (And skin tones too)



Axel looks washed out


Nasty colors


My scanner:



School scanner:


Pretty! Those are the REAL colors.

Any idea how to fix it? Can I? All other scans look great on my scanner.

Maybe I should just rely on the school scanner.

I know there is a way to set the color, but i don't know what that way is. or where to find it. CAn you access the maker of the scanner and get some tech help? I feel your frustration. An artist gets it just the way they want it and that is the way it should be viewed.

Hi!

Welcome to my world!

I have my 3rd scanner at the moment and none of them ever produced colours like they are on paintings and drawings.

I usually sit behind computer for an hour before I finally get scans to look like they should. Thank god for photoshop!

What kind of scanners do you guys use? I hear Epsons and the Canons at the library seem to be really nice as well.

Maybe I should invest?

Hi!

At the moment I have HP scanjet 4890. I bought it because it has removable top and I need that so I can scan large paintings and drawings.
