Eikazo is a GTK and Python based frontend for Sane.
Version: 0.5Eikazo is a GTK and Python based frontend for Sane.
Operating System: Linux
Here are some key features of "Eikazo":
· To maximize throughput, a new scan is started immediately after a former scan has been finished, if an automatic document feeder is used. Postprocessing and saving of the old scan is done, while the new scan is running.
· more than one output per scan is possible: You can simultaneously save the scanned image into a file and send it to a printer.
· plugin mechanisms for special devices features, for post-scan image processing and for other "storage options".
The device plugin mechanism allows to implement functions to support special device features.
Image enhancement plugins allow to automatically post-process the image. Currently, three plugins exist:
The combination of adaptive threshold and dirt removal can give better scan results for "problematic" originals, for example, if you want to extract the text from a paper with "shaded background", from an stained original, or if you can't reliably predict the density of the ink of the text. See the sample images samples/1.tif (simple fixed threshold, set in the scanner), samples/2.tif ("automatic threshold" from another scanner), samples/3.tif (grayscale scan) and samples/4.tif (adaptive threshold).
The ImageMagick plugin is probably not very useful in many cases; some of the provided options are procesed very slow -- in other words: it is mostly intended to show how to integrate an external image filter than to be directly useful.
What's New in This Release:
· Several bugfixes were made.
· Plugins for scan rotation and for storage of information of scanned images in an SQL database were added.
