I edited my own version of xsane2tess. So I tried to compile the code using Lnux Pascal but the build stops with the following error:. Other than this minor bug, deskew is an excellent program. Every time the output file sequence is repeated, this number gets increased by 1.

Before internally combining, –pre-rotation is optionally applied individually to both input images as the very first processing steps. After being created by the scanners, edskew image files are post-processed through a automated workflow using ImageMagick, LibTiff tools and Adobe Acrobat.

Deskea multiple edges are specified, the average value will be used, unless the statistical deviation exceeds –deskew-scan-deviation. Windows and Linux versions need Deskew command line tool binaries. Deskew web app, Deskew app for Android, and even Deskew Photoshop plugin!


Lower numbers lead to better results but slow down processing. Deskew is a tool for deskewing scanned text documents. The scans are made from two pages at a time and some of these scans are skewed, making text appear slightly tilted.

Binaries for several platforms, test images, and Object Pascal source code included. December 4, Deskew Tool v1. Many thanks for Deskew!

The main purpose is to make scanned book pages better readable on screen after conversion to PDF. Make sure you have libtiff5 package installed in Ubuntu not libtiff4 or 3. I have scanned documents that weren’t scanned perfectly straight so the text is not orientated perfectly horizontally, i.

Deskew is an open source package which can detect skewed text in scanned text documents, and output a straightened version. Although, of course, I can search for information, it would take a while, which is not compatible with my current enthusiasm with this tool.

How to deskew a scanned text-page with ImageMagick? – Stack Overflow

I’v now edited the question a bit. This tool is not working for above 20degrees skew image. Edges from which to scan for rotation. This option has the same effect as setting all –no-xxx options together. Although the ideal would be to chose the type of compression, including none, for now I would like to set the default to no compression.

I am using ImageMagick convert with the -units command to process the files after coming out from Deskew. Each edge of a mask can be used to detect the mask’s rotation. Note that an RGB-value is expected: Major US newspapers hit by cyberattack, disrupting printing and distribution.


Straighten text in scanned documents with Deskew

To get rid of the gray border I cropped the images with the -extent option of mogrify. Any blurred area which contains at most the ratio of dark pixels will be cleared. I’ve found the GPL software Briss to crop the scans in order to have a 1: The workaround at the moment is to lnux -l 0 or to convert every file to destination format prior to deskewing.

It includes converters for about graphics formats. This may be useful if the blackfilter fails to remove some black areas e. First the original image. If you provide me access to a small sample of your PDF files I could try and come up with a shell script to accomplish the feat. Oh, let me add another answer. Your tool is the first one giving us very satisfactory results.

I only tested on OS X, maybe this misbehaviour is platform-specific. Either tiffcp or Acrobat Deakew can investigate which one later gets confused by the dewkew of units in different pages. This option may also be helpful to get regular sized output images if the input image sizes differ.

Simple GUI frontend also exists. My workflow is like this: I looked into the source files and I think I know where I can make the slight modifications mentioned above.
