LiDE 220: Scanned Photos Are Exceptionally Grainy and Noisy

[ Edited ]

I'm scanning black and white photos with my LiDE 220. The results are awful: exceptionally grainy, little detail and very noisy. I must be doing something wrong. Here are my scan settings:


The scan is started from the computer.

Using Photo Scan.

Select Source: Photo

Color Mode: Black and White

Paper Size:Auto scan

Resolution: 600 dpi (same result with 300 dpi)

Data Format: TIFF (same result with PNG)


By contrast, Auto Scan started from the computer looks fine but will only save to PDF. Can't persuade the scanner to save to any other format.


I'm using Windows 10 with Canon's Windows 10 driver. What could I be doing wrong?
