Re: ST just for splitting pages

ST wasn't designed to be used like that. You can still do it, though not fully automatically, which probably defeats the point in your situation. The manual part is going to be setting the content box to cover each page.

Re: Scan Tailor "Experimental"

I suspect you are actually running out of your 6GB of memory. Your task manager only shows 2.6 GB peak consumption of Scan Tailor, though mine is peaking at 4.6 GB. Given that you have swap disabled, it's plausible 4.6 GB is not available to applications on your system. If you really need to process...

Re: Scan Tailor "Experimental"

I could not reproduce the crash or the out-of-memory situation so far. Do you have OpenGL / OpenCL enabled? Does it still crash with those disabled? The out-of-memory situation on 64-bit systems is usually caused by Qt's limitation of 2GB per image that's in place even in 64bit builds. Your image is...

Is this the one?
https://github.com/Tulon/scantailor/releases
Yes, the latest release should always be at the top of that page. The latest version is indeed the one from 22 february 2016.

Re: Scantailor - How to Get Identically Sized jpgs for Left and Right Side?

yes, I get wrong results (with: "Scan Tailor-experimental-2016-02-22") I have a good understanding of what causes this behaviour, yet this turns out surprisingly hard to fix. There won't be a quick fix, but I'll definitely keep this issue in mind. For now, you may be able to work around this issue ...

Re: Scantailor - How to Get Identically Sized jpgs for Left and Right Side?

Yes, thank you. This is a very good start. But still I have a small concern. So, if you have a book where every second page has a header, this does not lead to the desired result... . "Match size by scaling" is meant to preserve the aspect ratio, so it should be fine. I didn't test this feature ext...

Re: Scantailor - How to Get Identically Sized jpgs for Left and Right Side?

That's easy to do with Scan Tailor Experimental (get it from here). Load both left and right images into the same project and select "Match size by scaling" on the Margins stage.

Re: Computer hardware (cpu, gpu) to support software?

The official version of Scan Tailor is indeed single-threaded, but that's because no one updated it since 2012. Scan Tailor Experimental ( get it from here ) is multi-threaded and supports GPU acceleration via OpenCL. On the other hand, there is no project file portability between ST Exp and officia...
