Batch mode for "Text Recognition" tool. Program allows to
convert (OCR) many files at once.
Multipage Text Recognition (OCR)
Remove Noise removes noise pixels using the Kfill algorithm.
The RemoveNoise command works only with black/white images
Remove Isolated Pixels
Remove Isolated Pixels removes all groups of the Pixel Count
The Remove Isolated Pixels command works only with black/white
Noise Color specifies the "text" color, 0 is black and 1 is
white (for example if you have a document where the text is black
Noise Color must be 0, otherwise it must be 1).
Remove Punch Holes
Automatically detects the location of punch holes on the image
and removes them.
Deskewing estimates the orientation angle (in
degrees) of the text lines and rotates the image using this
Apply this command only to images that
contains a printed text.
If there is a selected area, Deskewing works (estimates) only on
Angle Range specifies the
working range in degrees. Low values enhance performance and
accuracy. For example specifying 30 Deskewing will scan the image
searching for pixels inside a range of -15 to 15 degrees. Angle
Range can be from 1 to 180.
Precision specifies the angle
precision in degrees. It must be >0 and <=1 with only one
decimal digit. Typical value is 0.1.
specifies if to apply and edge detect algorithm before detect the
Fine estimates the orientation angle (in degrees) of the
lines of text and rotates the current image.
Apply this method only to images that
contains printed text. Deskewing Fine use progressive
rotations to find the best orientation.
Starting Angle specifies the
starting angle, if you know it (0 otherwise)
Resolution is the angle
increment (0.1 is good)
Range specifies the angle
range (example 10, try from -5 to +5)
Quality : if not selected, create a thumbnail of the image
and works on it.
Color Adjust ...
This command shows the image processing preview dialog.
This command executes the image effects preview dialog.
Negative action inverts all colors of
the current image.

24Bit converts a black&white (1bit) image to true color
Gray action converts image to gray levels.
Convert to Gray just set R,G,B channels to
the same value.
BW Ordered converts a true color image (24 bit) to black
& white (1 bit) with a dithering ordered method.
BW FloydSteinberg converts current image to black/white
using Floyd-Steinberg algorithm.
BW Threshold converts a true color image (24 bit) to black
& white (1 bit) using a thresholding algorithm.
The image is first converted to gray levels,
then all levels that are less of Threshold will be set to black,
otherwise will be set to white.

This method resizes the current image to Width and Height. The content of the
image doesn't change (no stretch).
Position specifies the
horizontal and vertical alignment of the old image.

Crop removes the border with color like Background Color from the
The Tolerance specifies how much
background color must be equal to actual pixel.
Auto allows to determine the
background color automatically.
2 automatically removes the border using a density analysis
Border Rate is the difference
between border and text.
This method works only when paper is white
and text is black.
Line automatically removes the border by analyzing the color
and the number of pixels (width) in rows and columns.

The program analyzes each row and column.
Looks for pixels with a certain color

If the number of pixels is more than
necessary (Color pixels, %), the program counts this row or
When the required quantity is found (Number
