Re: Two newcomer problems

Dan,

I've never tried using jpeg2000 as source images. I just did a quick look and it looks like it doesn't work (they do work as an output format, however).

I'll see if there's a way that I can support that.

I'm curious what you are using that you have source files in jpeg2000 format.

Re: Two newcomer problems

I fixed the problem with saving Bitonal images. Try downloading the new version (2.0 beta4): http://sourceforge.net/projects/booksca ... t/download

There's still a problem with the Webstart version.. I'll try to work on that in a couple of days as well.

Re: Two newcomer problems

I'm sorry for your frustration, but I really appreciate the report. The issue appears to be that BSW doesn't create PDF files of bitonal images correctly. I'll try to look into fixing that. I maybe be able to do that this evening (CST). For now, you could create a similar effect by leaving it as gra...

Re: Two newcomer problems

For your first problem... It does appear that the Webstart version is broken. Oracle has tightened security and it must not like something I'm doing. I'll take a look and try to fix it. For your second issue, if you have both the left & right images on the same scanned page, use the LoadLRImages = ....

Re: BookScanWizard 2.0 – Memory Management Issues – Leak?

In your case, the new options would just slow you down... With the 64 bit Java you've got enough memory to take advantage of all those cores, so you might as well use them.

Re: Java runtime heap error

Sorry... I didn't see this thread until today.

What size are your source images? How about your destination images? Are you using the webstart or command line version?

Can you post your configuration script?

Re: BookScanWizard 2.0 – Memory Management Issues – Leak?

Try running the 64 bit version of Java with 8 gig or so.

I think I should add some configuration parameters that will limit the number of threads it will attempt to use, but for now I think that will get you running.

Re: BookScanWizard 2.0 – Memory Management Issues – Leak?

Book Scan Wizard is pretty memory intensive. It processes multiple pages at a time up to the number of processors you have on your computer. What is the size of your output images? What processor do you have? If possible, can you post or send me the configuration file you are using? 18 megapixel ima...

Re: setting DPIs / losing DPIs

The issue is that BSW doesn't ever retain the DPI's on source images. The reason being that the way it is normally used is that the source files are the jpg's from the camera, which don't have a valid DPI. However, when I get the chance, I'll see if I can add that feature to BSW. For now, you can us...

Re: New Version of Book Scan Wizard

What kind of processor do you have? Do you know how many cores it has?

What operating system? (Windows, Linux, or Mac)

How many megapixels are your source pictures?

Are you starting the program using webstart?
