Adding new scans to an old project?

Post by L.Willms » 06 Mar 2018, 18:37

I had scanned (in the library) the first part of the book, and have already processed it with ScanTailoer 0.9.1.1 up to creating a B/W output.

The remainder of the book I could scan only later, and have now those scans.

Can I simply add those to the old project? How do I unify the resulting page size and content block?

Right click on a page thumbnail -> Insert after ... -> Select multiple files.
Scan Tailor experimental doesn't output 96 DPI images. It's just what your software shows when DPI information is missing. Usually what you get is input DPI times the resolution enhancement factor.

Thank you!

Do those new files have to be in the same directory as the first batch?

What happens if the aren't?

The new files don't have to be in the same directory. In fact, they are not even required to have names distinct from those files that are already in the project.
