The Epson Stylus SX105 all in one printer and scanner is a great addition for your everyday office stuff, but the default settings in the scanner software tend to add unwanted cropping of images to pretty much anything you try to scan. While cropping is alright for most documents, in some situations you would prefer for the scanner to not crop scanned material on its own.
How to fix scanner cropping issue
I spent quite a lot of time trying to figure out what was wrong with the device and eventually failed to detect any anomalies because the actual problem laid elsewhere. By default the Epson Stylus scanner software is setup to crop anything you scan, but you can easily change that by doing the following:
- Open up the Epson scan software
- In home mode click on Configuration
- Under Preview pane set Thumbnail cropping area to Large
Click OK and your Epson Stylus SX105 scanner should no longer be cropping images automatically. Instead it will scan the entire document with all of its corners, cracks and imperfections it may or may not have. I have also provided you with a screenshot of the entire process to help you get it done fast.
