Images are not compressed when LZW Compression enabled


Question / Problem: 

I have LZW Compression selected, however when scanning images, they are not compressing. What could be causing this?

Answer / Solution: 

For the LZW Compression to be enabled, it does require to have image processing settings enabled to have scanned images run through ImageControls for image operations including LZW Compression.

You can adjust this in the Scan Queue, Properties, Permanent Image Cleanup by selecting one of the Image Cleanup Profiles.

Or you can add the following value to registry to trigger image processing without enabling image cleanup:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Kofax Image Products\Ascent Capture

ImportRequiresIP (String) = 1
