This invention allows a customer to set up a special automatic background supression mode which can be customized for the actual originals the customer would like to copy.
Some customers may want to use originals such as dark colored paper, which will not be corrected by a standard abs setting. These originals will have objectionable background even with ABS enabled. Even the aggressive abs mode will not correct some very dark originals.
This invention would allow a customer to set up a special ABS mode which can be customized for the actual originals the customer would like to copy. The feature would include a setup process where the customer would scan 1 or more samples of the original. The system would determine the background of those originals and set the special abs mode to correct for that background. The user could then copy their originals with this special mode turned on, and the background would be suppressed.
