Re: Colored Text

how do I use this script? I want to remove pale yellow bg from a book - magic wand in photoshop would be perfect but ofcourse I can't use it for every book.

Many thanks!

Change Defaults?

Hi,

Is it possible somehow to change the Scantailor defaults to my own preferences? For example, I like 0 margin on all sides for all books, 300 dpi in the output section and Color/Grayscale selected 95% of the time. How and where can I change these defaults?

Many thanks!
