I've been working on some new ScanTailor features which are in git repository but they are not included in any ScanTailor release yet. I've prepared this development release that you can test and use it if you find it useful.
This release: Tiff compression option allows to disable compression in tiff files or select one of other standard compression methods (lzw, deflate, packbits, jpeg).
Deviation patch enables highligting of different pages. Highlighted in red are pages from Deskew filter with too hight skew, from Select Content filter pages with different size of content and in Margins filter are highlighted pages which does not match others.
Automargins patch allows keep page content on original place. In the Margins step you can choose from Auto, Manual (default) and Original mode.
The manual mode is the original one. Auto mode try to decide if it is better to align page top, bottom or center. Original mode keeps page on their vertical original position.
Pagedetect patch allows detect page in black margins and enables keeping original page layout or switch off page content detection. To detect and keep original page layout from command line try:
- Code: Select all
scantailor-cli --disable-content-detection --enable-page-detection --enable-fine-tuning --margins=0 images outdir/
Or you can let the content detection enabled and enable also auto margins:
- Code: Select all
scantailor-cli --enable-page-detection --enable-fine-tuning --enable-auto-margins images outdir/
Matchlayout patch adds --match-layout options to cli version which detects atypical pages and does not match their size with others automaticaly.
Pictureshape patch adds option for mixed pages to choose from free shape and rectangular shape images. This patch does not improve the original algoritm but creates from the detected "blobs" rectangular shapes and the rectangles that intersects joins to one.
For windows I've compiled executable installation package. Other platforms have to compile from prepared source code which you can download from the same place or merge them yourselfs from git.
You can download the files from https://sourceforge.net/projects/scantailor/files/scantailor-devel/enhanced/
