Built a scanner? Started to build a scanner? Record your progress here. Doesn't need to be a whole scanner - triggers and other parts are fine. Commercial scanners are fine too.

That is awesome. Have you found/developed a post-processing workflow that suits you, yet?

so far I am using a windows batch script that renames and rotates the files.
then I use jpegcrops to crop them.

this is as far as I have tinkered.... I am considering trying scan tailor again, but it seems like overall my method would be quicker than scan tailor.
