Image Processing in day to day life

March 22, 2011 Leave a comment

What scanner (Flatbed scanner or Portable Scanner) is good?

Tried portable scanner and it is not useful much.
It is rolling credit card receipts and after couple of times we are seeing black scratches on images.
It is difficult to clean scanner frequently.
Conclusion: Image quality is good with flatbed scanner with compare to portable scanner.
Flatbed scanners are cheaper than portable scanners.

What software is good with scanner?
Generally each scanner seller provides basic software to scan images. That is good enough.
We need not to spend money on any other products.

If you lost software which comes with scanner,
try this http://TBD (To be documented)

What software is good to view and do simple tasks?
Xnview is good to view all pictures.
We can do auto crop, water marking, resizing, image conversion and many.
www.xnview.com

How to scan all receipts / photos quickly and cut them as single pics?
How to divide pictures in single scan?

Step 1: Scan all receipts / photos using scanner with its default software.
Keep as many as possible on glass and scan them.
Avoid overlapping.

Step 2: Use GIMP to multi crop and deskew the pictures

Download and install GIMP from http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

http://registry.gimp.org/files/deskew.zip
Unzip and copy deskew.exe to \GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins

http://ffaat.pointclark.net/incoming/scripts/DivideScannedImages.scm
Copy this script to \GIMP-2.0\share\gimp\2.0\scripts

Filters==>Batch Tools==>Batch Divide

 

 

You can see divided images in target folder.

Other tools / Notes:
JPEGCrops:  http://ekot.dk/programmer/JPEGCrops/
This tool is easy to crop manually many pictures at once.
