Galaxy S3 and voice command picture taking

So here is something interesting. I just got a Galaxy S3 and noticed two things. First it has a "Text" scene mode in the camera, and second you can activate the camera through voice commands, including actually taking the shot. I set it up as a make shift scanner and it works really well. You simply...

Scan Tailor Automatic Select Content question

Hi All, I love scan tailor and use it regularly. But one of the things I find with the automatic select content is that it tries to hard to get it exactly right which often leads to letter that are only partially included. I wondered if there is some setting that would allow there to have the box ex...

Re: Book Scan Wizard Questions

Thanks Steve, much better!

One other confusing thing. I set SetSourceDPI = 500 and yet when I hit preview I still get the "ScaleToDPI Source DPI is not set" message. I tried setting ScaleToDPI to blank but that did not solve the problem. Any hints?
Thanks

Re: Book Scan Wizard Questions

But Here's another less problematic and yet more annoying problem. If the script exceeds the size of the window there is no way to scroll down to the commands that have scrolled off the page. No scroll bar appears. Even using the arrow keys the cursor disappears. I am using Ubuntu 10.04, BSW 0.9.9, ...

Re: Book Scan Wizard Questions

And the correct answer is (for others who might encounter the same question)
LoadLRImages = ignore_times /directory/that/has/l and r

Thus I conclude all parameters go after the = sign

Book Scan Wizard Questions

I thought I'd start a new thread for Book Scan Wizard Questions so as to try to keep the primary Book Scan Wizard Thread to update comments from Steve. To that end I have started playing with Book scan wizard and have run against a simple issue. I shoot with one camera first the right and then the l...

Re: Select Contents Replication Question

Perhaps, this is confusion on my part. In order to actually apply a change to a group of photos, do you first click apply, select the parameters (all selected pictures, all even picture, etc) click ok, and then click the "play" button again to actually apply the changes?

Select Contents Replication Question

I've noticed with select content if I make a small margin change and trickle that through the rest, all the rest are set to ? status. If I click on them it does appear the change has been made. Do I need to click on each one or should I just ignore the question marks? Also it seemed to me that previ...

Re: Even then Odd pages, can scan tailor combine?

Ah, that works wonderfully! I took off the & at the end of the processing lines cause it caused x to restart. And I added a echo line so I could see what it was doing. But I do think its much faster.

Thanks so much! You Rock!
