-d<device-uri> or --device=<device-uri>
To specify a CUPS printer:
-p<printer> or --printer=<printer>

Run in interactive mode:
-i or --interactive

Set the logging level:
-l<level> or --logging=<level> <level>: none, info*, error, warn, debug (*default)
Run in debug mode:
-g (same as option: -ldebug)

Scan mode:
-m<mode> or --mode=<mode>. Where <mode> is 'gray'*, 'color' or 'lineart'.
Scanning resolution:
-r<resolution_in_dpi> or --res=<resolution_in_dpi> or --resolution=<resolution_in_dpi> where 300 is default.
Image resize:
--resize=<scale_in_%> (min=1%, max=400%, default=100%)
Image contrast:
-c=<contrast> or --contrast=<contrast> The contrast range varies from device to device.
Image brightness:
-b=<brightness> or --brightness=<brightness> The brightness range varies from device to device.
ADF mode:

-t<units> or --units=<units> where <units> is 'mm'*, 'cm', 'in', 'px', or 'pt' ('mm' is default).
Scan area:
-a<tlx>,<tly>,<brx>,<bry> or --area=<tlx>,<tly>,<brx>,<bry> Coordinates are relative to the upper left corner of the scan area. Units for tlx, tly, brx, and bry are specified by -t/--units (default is 'mm'). Use only commas between values, no spaces.
Scan box:
--box=<tlx>,<tly>,<width>,<height> tlx and tly coordinates are relative to the upper left corner of the scan area. Units for tlx, tly, width, and height are specified by -t/--units (default is 'mm'). Use only commas between values, no spaces.
Top left x of the scan area:
--tlx=<tlx> Coordinates are relative to the upper left corner of the scan area. Units are specified by -t/--units (default is 'mm').
Top left y of the scan area:
--tly=<tly> Coordinates are relative to the upper left corner of the scan area. Units are specified by -t/--units (default is 'mm').
Bottom right x of the scan area:
--brx=<brx> Coordinates are relative to the upper left corner of the scan area. Units are specified by -t/--units (default is 'mm').
Bottom right y of the scan area:
--bry=<bry> Coordinates are relative to the upper left corner of the scan area. Units are specified by -t/--units (default is 'mm').
Specify the scan area based on a paper size:
--size=<paper size name> where <paper size name> is one of: 3x5, 4x6, 5x7, a2_env, a3, a4, a5, a6, b4, b5, c6_env, dl_env, exec, flsa, higaki, japan_env_3, japan_env_4, legal, letter, no_10_env, oufufu-hagaki, photo, super_b

Filename for 'file' destination:
-o<file> or -f<file> or --file=<file> or --output=<file>

PDF viewer application:
--pdf=<pdf_viewer>

Image viewer application:
-v<viewer> or --viewer=<viewer>

Image editor application:
-e<editor> or --editor=<editor>

From: address for 'email' dest:
--email-from=<email_from_address> (required for 'email' dest.)
To: address for 'email' dest:
--email-to=<email__to_address> (required for 'email' dest.)

Note or message for the 'email' dest:
--email-msg="<msg>" or --email-note="<note>" Use double quotes (") around the note/message if it contains space characters.

Printer queue/printer dest:
--dp=<printer_name> or --dest-printer=<printer_name>
Printer device-URI dest:
--dd=<device-uri> or --dest-device=<device-uri>

Set the scanner compression mode:
-x<mode> or --compression=<mode>, <mode>='raw', 'none' or 'jpeg' ('jpeg' is default) ('raw' and 'none' are equivalent)
