tomse,

Unfortunately, I don't see myself working on Scan Tailor again. It's been a while since I touched it the last time, and I never felt like going back to it since.
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.

Tulon, I've registered here just to say THANKS for your awesome work on Scan Tailor Experimental.
I'm using it both in GUI and CLI (which works only when you define all steps!), and it's awesome that I don't have to enter input DPI anymore.
I love the new feature to adjust 'curved lines'. It's near perfect! Great work.

antwoorden, I am glad you found Scan Tailor Experimental useful.

It's surprising the CLI mode worked for you at all, as I remember it was seriously broken in the Experimental version.
As for "adjusting curved lines", that feature was present in earlier versions as well, on the Output stage under the "Dewarping" tab.

Tulon, as foler mentioned before, CLI mode isn't broken at all. You just have to define: "--end-filter=6" so it won't stop at step 4. It should be easy for you as the developer, to set 6 as default again.
