Output file renaming?

Post by rob » 10 Mar 2011, 13:14

Using 1.0.0beta10.

So I've set up my output for 300 dpi, Color/Grayscale, but the files I end up with in the output directory have the same names as the input files. Since the input files are L_ and R_ files, the output files aren't ordered the way they are displayed in Scan Tailor. Is there a setting somewhere to rename the files? Or do I have to do that outside ScanTailor?

Project file attached.

Back in the old days, output files were named like this: NNNN_origname.tiff
You would get your order information, but inserting / deleting / changing split type would mess things up. Therefore I removed ordering information from the output file names.
Which means - yes, you have to order your files outside of Scan Tailor.
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.
