Re: OCR for 78 RPM record labels

If I were going to do this I'd get a 12"x12" piece of 1/4" MDF, put a 1/4" dowel coming out the center of it and stick that to the wall with double-stick tape. I'd put a camera on a tripod about 6' back, pointed at that dowel, and have two clip-on lights to the right and left of the tripod to light...

It is not free but with built in threading i.e. multitasking and 64-bit application, it can be very fast. I use ...

Re: Do cameras with manual mode minimize/eliminate need for remote software?

If you had two cameras & stored the photos on an SD card or whatever, is there software available for a PC that would still interleave them together after you transfer them to the computer? I use the freecommander , the split window (dual panel) alternative to the Windows Explorer, one of the succe...

Re: Scanning/processing on Android phone/tablet

I don't want to discourage the bookscanner, but I had recently seen a software by Adobe for this. How does that compare to yours?

Re: Scan Tailor Advanced

A new update with new features, fixes and improvements has been released. And from one mini-minor release to the next (14 to 15), one can't use the little update to continue to work on current projects: "The project file is incompatible with the current application version". Please add a feature th...

Re: Scan Tailor Advanced

I wonder where this version of Scan Tailor Advanced stores its config? The previous version were simply unpacked into a subfolder of UTIL, and kept the config in a subdirectory CONFIG. The "scantailor.ini" of 10.0.14 is located not only in the "config\scantailor" subdirectory of the program directo...
