ScanTailor wont except my DPI

Hello DIYBS community,
I have been using ScanTailor for a while now but I have only used TIFF files because I was unsuccessful with JPEGS, but its too painful. So I need your help.

1. I'm using a Canon AS590IS Camera Book Scanner
2. After I'm done I upload onto my MacBook Pro
3. Now I go to Mac Preview and got to inspector and it gives me the Image DPI for the document of 180 Pixels/Inch when I select 6 lines in Preview I get 230 units by X, when I used photoshop Image Size I get 180...
4. I open Scan Tailor, start new project select all JPEGs I want to use, I select Use (but I don't select fix DPI even if it looks good), then the Need Fixing pops up, I click on all pages and I try 180 x 180, click apply, then OK
5. Then I get The following file could not be loaded: /Desktop/A&P/003-Left.JPG

I've tried it everyway I can possible think, I need your assistance to get over this hill.

Thanks
James

It doesn't look like it's a DPI problem, it looks like it's JPEG reading problem.

The Mac OS X version of Scan Tailor is released and supported by the community. Unfortunately I can't provide any help. Maybe someone else will.

hi kdem0n,

What happens if you try "fix DPI" - is the result the same?

What version of ST are you using?

How did you install Scan Tailor?

I figured it out, once I recompiled the current version of ScanTailor it worked just fine.
