    The data that is saved is exactly the data that is send by the
    scanner. You can adjust gamma values by activating the check box "use
    custom gamma" and using the gamma curve.

    What do you mean by "washed out"? Are the colors to bright? I have
    never heard about something like this. Are you sure that you don't
    have problems with your display (maybe only 256 colors)? Does this
    happen with scanimage, too (compare the result of a normal scan with a
    preview (e.g. 100 dpi))? If this happens, can you put the two images
    on a www or ftp server because I want to check this?
