Re: Two newcomer problems

The version of the pdf that I posted did have each page separately, but the pdf was marked to default to showing two pages at once. I brought it up in Adobe Reader and selected single page view and it display it they way you are looking for. It would be easy enough to add an option to BSW to have it...

Re: Two newcomer problems

Very strange... I tried that script and it worked fine for me.

Take a look at the output I got. Does it match your output?

Re: Two newcomer problems

I tried it on a different machine, using the last config I sent, with the pdf document converted to png files, and it worked fine.

Are you sure you are looking at the right output? try deleting the pdf file, verify it is deleted, rerun the script, and verify the pdf file again.

Re: Two newcomer problems

I think it split the pages, but BSW will mark the PDF to default to the 2 page display.

So if you are in Adobe Reader and want to see one page at a time, go under page display, then "Single page view"

Re: Two newcomer problems

I gave up on reading the PDF... I tried a couple different libraries and they all have problems reading that file. The issue is that the PDF is saved as all text. BSW can read PDF's as long as each page is one image. There was also a problem with the Color = gray operation when dealing with black & ...

Re: Two newcomer problems

Try setting the LoadLRImages to the path of the pdf file. So somethings like this:

LoadLRImages = /Users/essin/BookScanWork/somefile.pdf

If that doesn't work, can you send me or upload your pdf file?

Re: Two newcomer problems

I uploaded a new version that allows you to import a PDF file using the LoadLRImages. The version is 2.0 beta 5.

Re: Adjust color automaticly

Debuti, I was wondering if you could post or send me an image of a blank page from your scanner. I think BSW could normalize the lighting over the page, but I'd like to have a sample image to see how well it would work. It works by using an image of a blank page to see where it is brighter and darke...

Re: Two newcomer problems

Have you tried directly loading the PDF into BSW? Try: LoadImages = source.pdf LoadLRImages doesn't support pdf inputs (It is easy enough to add though... If your source pdf's work with LoadImages I'll add support for pdf to LoadLRImages. BTW, while the automated notify messages from this site come ...
