Windows/Linux: Tired of fiddling with scanned pages to remove borders, correct alignment and otherwise prettify them before storing or emailing them? Then Scan Tailor could be right up your alley.
This free app splits two-page scans into single documents, converts text to black and white without disturbing images, and cleans stray specks off pages. Scan Tailor even gets rid of that pesky shadow down the centre of a two-page scan that occurs when you lay an open book face down on a scanner.
The app’s developer says the next major release will auto-correct distortions that occur on digitally photographed pages. What features would make cleaning up scanned documents easier for you? Scan Tailor is a free, open-source download for Windows and Linux.
