Editor's review

This software helps scan paper.

ScanPapyrus is a software application for scanning paper documents or books using a flatbed scanner or a multifunction device. Saving scanned documents in PDF or Word format is possible. You could save them as images in JPEG, TIFF, BMP, or PNG formats. Automatic book scanning is a nice feature. In this, scanning of each pair of pages can be timed to start automatically so that the operator simply turns the pages and waits for scanning to be completed. As two pages are scanned together, separating the pages could be a tedious task. This software utility can separate out the two pages automatically. The interface presented by the tool is simple enough for most users to master it easily. This approach significantly reduces the time to convert a paper book into the PDF or DOCX format. It can also insert an image from an external image file into your project. The image will be inserted as a PDF page. Image formats supported include JPEG, BMP, PNG, and TIFF.

A bit of necessary image processing can be carried out by this tool. These operations include increasing the sharpness, removing the gray background, cropping the image, and removing the black stripes produced by the scanner when its lid is not closed. This last operation helps when scanning books automatically, as you can leave the lid open and make it easy for turning the pages to be scanned. This tool can remove any skew, which is often a problem. When starting a scanning session, you would be able to select one device from all the scanners that may be connected. These need to be TWAIN compatible. Full color scanning is possible. The output document could be turned into a PDF or a Word document. This is a very good product.

Publisher's description

ScanPapyrus is a software application for scanning paper documents or paper books/copybooks using a flatbed scanner or multifunction device (scanner/printer/copier). ScanPapyrus can save scanned pages as a Adobe PDF or Microsoft Word 2007 (.docx) document, or as multiple JPEG, TIFF, BMP, or PNG image files.
The key feature of this application is the automatic scanning of books or documents: ScanPapyrus can start scanning each page automatically at a specified time interval. During the in-between time, you can turn the page of a book or change the page of a document in the scanner.

The application can automatically adjust the resulting image. It can increase the sharpness, remove gray background, crop the image, and remove the black stripes produced by the scanner when its lid is not closed. Now, thanks to the image processing, you can leave the scanner's lid open when scanning a book or a document, and ScanPapyrus will remove the black stripes.

Another key feature of this application is the automatic splitting of facing pages into two separate pages. ScanPapyrus detects pages using an intelligent algorithm, so that facing pages can be automatically split into single pages. This way, you can scan a pair of facing pages at once to get two single pages. This approach significantly reduces the time to convert a paper book into the PDF or DOCX format.

ScanPapyrus can also insert any image from an external image file into your project. The image will be inserted as a PDF page. The following file formats are supported: JPEG, BMP, PNG, and TIFF. ScanPapyrus can process these images, too. It can increase their sharpness, compensate for the background, crop the images to remove unnecessary margins or stripes, and correct any skew.
