mac software - split vertic. A3 - erase thumbs

Post by Frederik » 23 Jun 2018, 11:10

Dear all,

What is my goal?
I have a huge library of music scores.
The scores printed on A4 are already scanned through a Brother ADS-2100
This works very well.
The books are another problem.
I have an Iphone and Ipad pro.
This is my plan:
Scan a book - format max. A3 - with Phone or Pad
(I’ll build a construction for scanning.)
The software splits the pages vertically AND sorts them in the right order.
Option1: fingers left and right are deleted.
Option2: curving of the pages is corrected
OCR is not needed.
Is there any software solution?
What is your experience with Bookscanner & Office Lens (both Mac app store)?
I found the perfect application: Booksorber, but this doesn’t seem to respond any more for several years
and it refuses to run on mac (despite the needed installation of Java).
Thanks for your useful advise,

ScanTailor can do this, I believe. It has a step for split pages. ScanTailor advanced binary for mac OS is available somewhere.
