	you can get all available options with (this isnot specific to umax_pp 
scanimage -d dev -h

	with 'dev' the device name given by 'scanimage -L'. With my settings, 
it is umax_pp:/dev/parport0, so 'scanimage -d umax_pp:/dev/parport0 -h' gives 
you all the scanning options of the umax_pp backend.

	Finally, the one you wanted is Color:
	--mode Lineart|Grayscale|Color [Grayscale]
	    Selects the scan mode (e.g., lineart,monochrome, or color).
