I posted the following message in another thread several months ago and received no replies. I'm posting it again here in hopes that someone else may have experienced this problem and figured out a solution for it. I had hoped that updates to the software would improve this situation, but it has not. I still get a consistent shift toward red with scans of images, especially black and white images, but also color images. Here's the previous post with a little more detail: I have an SSEE that is physically connected to a MacMini running the Mavericks OS. In general it works well, but I have three problems to report: 1. In automatic mode it detects black and white photos as documents and files them in the document folder as a PDF scan. 2. If I pre-select "photos" in the setup before the scan, it will scan BW photos as photos but scans them as color photos and sometimes -- but not always -- makes some very funky color substitutions. For instance, the white siding on a house is turned into an off-color pink. If I let it mis-classify one of the problem BW photos as a document and scan it to a PDF file the same color problems occur. This leads me to believe that the problem is in the scanner firmware itself. 3. Color photos also in some instances evidence some weird color shifts. For instance, a child standing in front of a building with dark wood siding ends up having his natural skin tone replaced with a "reddish" tint and the wood has red streaks through it. The scan of documents and receipts works well and the auto detection is fairly good. However, receipts that are larger than register receipts are almost always misclassified as documents. OCR of documents works fine. I'm wondering if some of these problems are known and will be corrected in the upcoming firmware update -- hopefully soon. Thanks. Carl
