Scan Tailor output BW vs Photoshop?

Post by Scanallthebooks » 14 Dec 2016, 19:45

Can anyone explain how Scan Tailor does its BW conversion? I'm specifically wondering how it compares quality wise to doing the conversion in photoshop, either through adjusting levels or using Jetigen's blending modes method.

Hi, read this thread where Tulon, the creator of Scan Tailor, describes the algorithms used to binarize (make black and white).
