to

Crop = 2793,0, 5565,4622

Re: RaspberryPi 2

I tried using a RaspberryPi 2 as well, without any luck. I then tried to install Rasbian, then install spreads on top of that... I got close, but in the end I couldn't make that work either. Then I tried the latest image with a B+, that failed, but then went back to the April 25 image, and that one ...

Re: Bug?: Viewer shows disconnected tiles of input image

Ok.. I'm kind of at a loss about your problem on the Mac. I don't have access to a Mac, but it seems like a problem with Java, and not with BSW.

Re: Bug?: Viewer shows disconnected tiles of input image

Are you running it on a Mac?

You could try running in the windows VM with Java 7, and see if that helps.

Re: Has BSW been abandonded?

BSW isn't abandoned, but yes, less time is spent on it as of late. I've been thinking that it would be helpful to have a real scripting language (like javascript or python) for the processing, instead of the current bsw specific syntax. I think the key advantages over bsw over a ImageMagick script i...

Re: How to open BSW

Sorry I didn't see this till now...

If you are having troubles with the webstart links not working, try downloading and installing Java, and see if that solves the issue:

Re: Problem with Bookscan - Newcomer

I updated BSW so it now includes jai and jai-imageio, instead of requiring the user to download them separately when installing manually. (The webstart version is not changing for now). https://sourceforge.net/projects/bookscanwizard/files/latest/download This should take care of the NoClassDefFound...

Re: Problem with Bookscan - Newcomer

Hmm... for some reason I didn't get notified about this thread...

There does seem to be an issue with the latest version. I'll fix it in the next couple of days.

In the meantime, you can use the webstart version:

Re: BookScanWizard 2.0

Correct.. If your source rectangles are all the same size ScaleToFirst does nothing. If the images are the same size the resizing is skipped. That's weird with the gray.. I'll try doing some testing under linux and see if I can reproduce it. Yes, it is best to do the ScaleToFirst or any scaling befo...
