Book Scanning: Scan Tailor is Awesome

Ever scan a book and then have to go back and split and straighten the pages before uploading to your collection management tool of choice? While this can be automated a bit in programs like Adobe Photoshop, did you ever wonder why you couldn’t have just one intuitive, wonderful tool for page processing.

Enter Scan Tailor

Scan Tailor “performs operations such as page splitting, deskewing, adding/removing borders, and others.” It is free and open source (though it would be nice to donate to the clever developer). Available for Windows with the source code as well. Try it. You’ll like it.
