Re: iPhone App: PageScanner

I saw your futuristic scanner earlier, well done! At present page scanner's focus is on black&white. I do want to provide colorful scan ultimately. Please send me your sample pages when you're working on your smartphone build, so I can make sure page scanner works best with your build. Very good wor...

Re: iPhone App: PageScanner

Page scanner updated to 2.1 TaylorR137 suggests that the previous version doesn't handle photos well. That is true because I focus on provide clear text at that time. Scanning with handheld iphone camera is very different from scanning with stable and well lit devices people built here, we need to d...

Re: iPhone App: PageScanner

Real Cam LE: There are good ideas here, but poorly executed in practice--with book scanning, that is. This app's approach to white balance is choosing 1 of 5 points on the display that should be white. But this wasn't effective on book pages and documents for me. So, if you could develop your own a...

Another question for your scan machine: Is it still suffering from camera orientation flip issue?

Re: iPhone App: PageScanner

Excellent work, Litchie! Looking forward to it. I had one question about white balance . For those who scan under CFLs, LEDs, Incandescent, or any different lighting. If you had a white balance option, would that improve the binarization? Or would it not make a difference? If there was a way to mod...

Re: iPhone Apps for Smartphone Book Scanning (Tests & Review

[I don't have an iphone4 now, but I think zoom function in most camera apps is fake, they just apply a scale-up transform, the underlying image and its quality is not affected. No doubt it is more friendly, I will think about it. What do you mean by "set batch focus"? I would like to implement it i...

Re: iPhone Apps for Smartphone Book Scanning (Tests & Review

Get it! I will see if there is any way to set camera focus. I have a DX too.. I prefer to read in landscape mode, to have bigger texts. But I find sometimes it doesn't zoom in for certain PDF documents. That is really confusing. Litchie! Thanks, I knew you were around. Let me know if you are having...
