Batch conversion with twain source

Post by CreativeWorld » Fri Dec 15, 2017 8:00 am

Hello,

i have a simple question. I can scan from a twain source and get a PDF file for each scaned page. Is it possible to scan pages and group them with a preset?

For example: I scan 10 pages and I want to create a PDF file after every two pages. So I get five PDFs each with 2 pages.

I need a few presets like, make a PDF File after one page, after two pages, after four pages, ....

Is that possible in XnView (with addons) or do I need another program?

Greetings
Sebastian

That seems a rather specialised need: I doubt if it would be a priority for Pierre to add it given his current high workload, and I don't know of any scanning or post-processing utility that provides the function. Possibly XnTriq can suggest something... :wink:

But I think that it wouldn't be too difficult to create a batch file that could post-process a folder of scans the way you suggest, using the command line utility NConvert and some Windows command line code [cmd.exe or 'DOS'].

Alternatively, someone familiar with modern programming tools might be able to produce a simple Windows utility.
