Why would you need to check to see if the auto exposure is correct?
Has anyone ever seen a case where the "Device|Auto exposure"
option doesn't work optimally?
It's fairly conservative, and there shouldn't be many pixels in the
raw scan file that are above 95% of white.
The clipping of the cropped file is controlled by the
"Color|White point (%)" and "Color|Black point (%)"
options. Is there a problem with one of these options?
