Image Scan! is a frontend for exclusive use with the epkowa backend. It is 
developed in tandem with the epkowa backend and available on the Avasys website [1].

That depends on the frontend you are using. With Image Scan! there is no way to 
configure the image processing directly. However, you can influence it 
indirectly by adjusting various settings available in the UI. One such setting 
is the "Image Type" setting. I don't know about xsane.

It's certainly possible. You could try using Image Scan! and/or scanimage to see 
if you get different results.
