The correct distortion mode for your examples is "Curved Lines". However, your case is too hard for automatic dewarping to handle, so you will ...

Re: Unable to get ScanTailor Output

Unable to get ScanTailor Output

I am not sure why no matter what I do with Steps 1-5 (orientation, split pages, geometric distortions, select content, margins) I can't see to get ScanTailor to produce an output. I have attached the error message I get.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thank you!!
