Scan Tailor is an interactive post-processing tool for scanned pages. It performs operations such as page splitting, deskewing, adding/removing borders, and others. You give it raw scans, and you get pages ready to be printed or assembled into a PDF or DJVU file. Scanning, optical character recognition, and assembling multi-page documents are out of scope of this project. [09wk47]
Windows/Linux: Tired of fiddling with scanned pages to remove borders, correct alignment, and otherwise prettify them before storing or emailing them? Then Scan Tailor could be right up your alley. This free app splits two-page scans into single documents, converts text to black and white without disturbing images, and cleans stray specks off pages. Scan Tailor even gets rid of that pesky shadow down the center of a two-page scan that occurs when you lay an open book face down on a scanner.
