Post-processing tool for scanned pages
Scan Tailor

Scan Tailor is an interactive post-processing application for scanned pages. It performs operations such as page splitting, deskewing, adding/removing borders, and others. You give it raw scans, and you get pages ready to be printed or assembled into a PDF or DJVU file. Scanning, optical character recognition, and assembling multi-page documents are out of scope of this project.

Scan Tailor is Free Software (which is more than just freeware). It's written in C++ with Qt and released under the General Public License version 3. We develop both Windows and GNU/Linux versions.

Developer comments

This project is under development, but it's already usable. All essential features have been implemented, but we aren't going to stop there!

We need developers! This project started in late 2007 and has been mostly a one man effort since then. If you are a developer good at C++, you are welcome to join! Knowledge of image processing is not required - there are many tasks unrelated to it.
