Hi James,

I'm using the plustek backend, and the scanimage command from the command
line (want use one either phpSANE or php-scanner-server in the long run,
which use the scanimage command), both from SANE 1.0.24. I've also tried
xsane, same result.

I have also tried the gamma correction (gamma4scanimage is certainly your
friend in that regard) to no avail.

I strongly suspect I'll be joining the sane-devel list . Thought I'd give
CLUG a try first.
