Scan Tailor: A Fussy Yet Effective Scan Scrubber

Filed under
Software

The Linux OS has a number of nimble apps that take the hassle out of getting photo images and documents from a flatbed scanner to a hard drive or USB storage device. Two worthy examples reviewed in Linux Picks are Xsane and Simple Scan.

While these and other scanner apps do a good job of creating facsimile-like digital images, the results can be less than printer-ready. A finishing step is often needed to clean up the copied clutter the scanning process creates. That type of scanner clean-up app is almost non-existent.

Scan Tailor adds the snipping and stitching tools to make scanned images suitable for business-quality printed copies. This really cool app lets you remove borders, correct alignment and rectify the nicks and dings hidden in the analog originals.
