PaperScan is an universal scanning software designed to offer power as well as simplicity of use.
While most scanning applications are dedicated to one scanner or one scanning protocol, PaperScan allows you to control any scanner, including network scanners (TWAIN or WIA protocols), cameras or acquisition cards.
All features are automatically negotiated and handled by PaperScan.
PaperScan provides flatbed and document feeder support.
Already existing images or PDF files can be imported with PaperScan in order to adjust and enhance the image quality by :
-removing punch holes
-blank pages detection and removal
-converting to black and white or greyscale or colour
-adjusting colour (brightness, contrast, saturation, gamma)
-applying filters to smooth, stretch contrast or median the image
-applying bitonal filters to remove isolated dots or to dilate/erode characters
-applying contour, sepia or scanline effects.
PaperScan allows image rendering quality selection, area selection, crop selected area, image resize, image printing and so on.
PaperScan displays info about image's resolution, size and colour mode.
