By washout I mean that the coloration is very decreased in
intensity. Sometimes the images have a predominately bluish
cast or even almost appear monotone. It is not a monitor
issue as it functions fine. The image in the preview
box looks acceptable and I can't figure out why when I
do a formal acquisition of an image the saved data appears
pale when displayed with XV or GIMP. Yes I do have the
dialog set for color! :)
I'm not really losing any sleep over this but I will
go ahead tonight and play with the gamma values and see
what turns up. I use this same monitor to work with
my ALR/H-P 6300C combination and the images are just great.
I think it might be easier to fool with the gamma values
with xsane and see if I can save some acceptable scans
I am not implying that the software is at issue here.
I'm thinking I might have some setting wrong.
