Re: Auto Orientation

Let me check what it does. I probably missed it because i was searching for a "auto rotation" option not for a "auto de-skewing" option.

Re: Auto Orientation

So you are using Image > Rotate > Rotate... to manually straighten images using the grid? And you, like me, would like an Auto Deskew action to be added to XnView MP? :wink: XnConvert specifically, but i suppose that if done for XnConvert it is little more than a copy/paste and adding a couple of d...

Re: Auto Orientation

At the moment i do not use any kind of auto orientation, because i would have to reinstall the classic xnview which i haven't used in years. So basically what i am doing at the moment is i just tell xnview to give me the precise orientation tool, use the grid option and slowly go over the various de...

Re: Auto Orientation

It's been years since i've used XnView classic, but as i was correcting the orientation of even just 10 pages the other day it did come back to me that an option was there in the past.

Re: Auto Orientation

Sorry. Rephrasing. I have multiple different images. Each image is a "page" as in "page from a book". Each image needs to be re-oriented so that each "line of text" is either "horizontal or vertical" (usually books don't have words at an angle, so if it checks that the vast majority of the text is v...

auto crop just checks the "outside" of the picture. Check the zealous crop.

Auto Orientation [Deskew]

I oftentimes scan pages of stuff (mostly books i want to clip for ideas later on). I usually end up re-orienting each page later as it annoys me to see the pages all wonky. Is there a way to re-orient them in batch? I think in XnView classic there was an auto-orientation option, which i do not see e...

[Feature Request] G.I.M.P.'s "Zealous Crop"

Okay, i just understood what Gimp's zealous crop does and i would like to experiment with it on a large scale. Is it possible to implement in XnConvert? Basically it searches for lines or columns of identical colors inside of the image and removes them, This usually removes whitespaces between panel...

Re: [LONG] XnView Bug or not? Help to find a problem source.

I've got to get out for work, i cannot do much more right now. However i've attached (for whatever is worth) a copy of the handles and the DLLS called when it is working and when it has crashed, since i can now reliably start it after it crashes. i should get some better debug tools but for now this...
