Re: Question about BSW

Post by steve1066d » 05 Sep 2011, 11:22

BSW would be hard to use for that. BSW works best if there are multiple pages that each need the same adjustment. In your case when you are wanting to do a different adjustment on each page would be rather tedious.

Here's how it would have to be done:
  • Ensure that the perspective checkbox is checked, and the crop checkbox is unchecked.
  • Add a "Pages all" line to the configuration file.
  • Click on the two corners to create the crop window.
  • Hold down the ctrl key, and click over the page number. This will add a registration mark.
  • Right click, and choose "Crop" from the dropdown menu.
  • Press the + key to go to the next page
  • click inside the box, and drag the crop box so that the registration mark is over the page.
  • Right click, and choose "Crop" from the dropdown menu.
  • Do the previous 3 step for the rest of the pages of the book.
This will create rows like the following configuration:

Code: Select all

Pages = all
Crop =  284,232, 1334,1647 # BSW_0000 L (IMG_4817)
Pages = right
Crop =  229,394, 1279,1809 # BSW_0001 R (IMG_0002)
Pages = left
Crop =  256,256, 1305,1671 # BSW_0002 L (IMG_4818)
Pages = right
Crop =  227,366, 1276,1781 # BSW_0003 R (IMG_0003)
Pages = left
Crop =  239,234, 1288,1649 # BSW_0004 L (IMG_4819)
Finally, you would need to change the generated configuration so that each crop only affected a single page by editing the "Pages" lines (by editing the configuration):

Code: Select all

Pages = BSW_0000
Crop =  284,232, 1334,1647 # BSW_0000 L (IMG_4817)
Pages = BSW_0001
Crop =  229,394, 1279,1809 # BSW_0001 R (IMG_0002)
Pages = BSW_0002
Crop =  256,256, 1305,1671 # BSW_0002 L (IMG_4818)
Pages = BSW_0003
Crop =  227,366, 1276,1781 # BSW_0003 R (IMG_0003)
Pages = BSW_0004
Crop =  239,234, 1288,1649 # BSW_0004 L (IMG_4819)
I'll consider adding a feature to make this easier.. I haven't done much with BSW lately, but I plan to return to in once it it get cold in Minnesota again. :)
