Image cleanup examples

Image cleanup helps improve recognition results for poor quality documents. Examples of poor quality documents include:

  • Documents that contained colored text or images and were scanned to black and white, and lost character definition as a result

  • Documents that were faxed before scanning

  • Documents that were printed on a printer that was low on ink or toner

  • Documents with both machine printed and hand printed text

Advanced Despeckle is the most powerful cleanup method. For example, it can be used to remove repeating patterns and targeted boxes from an image.
