    Epson Scan Output Colour Issue

    I adjust the colours and levels of the image in the epson scan preview but when I output the tif the image becomes bleached and muddy.

    Have you tried 2.2 gamma instead of the 1.8

    This happened to me often, never did figure out why, gave up on epson scan and went back to Silverfast, no more problem

    That said I'd still like to know why so will be following this in case it's solved

    I see you have your target set to Adobe RGB. This should work fine if you open the TIFF in a profile-aware program afterwards, such as Photoshop. However, if you happen to view it in an application that is profile agnostic (e.g. Windows photo viewer), then the colors will not display correctly.
    Having said that, while I find the Epson scan tool very useful, I never use it for color corrections, as I find that the preview ALWAYS looks different (color-wise) from the end result. Maybe Silverfast does better in this respect, or just scan in such a way that sufficient color information is captured in all three channels and do the corrections afterwards in e.g. Photoshop. I choose to do the latter (but I don't do much color scanning with the old flatbed anyway).

    My philosophy: Do nothing in any scan software except set scan area and Black/White points and capture to highest available bit depth TIFF. Everything else in Photoshop.
