Re: Enhance Scanned Pages

I think something must have changed/improved in version 8. I deskewed a 64 kb file in version 7 and it resulted in a 416 kb file using Enhanced Scanned Pages. In version 8 using the same file and settings I ended up with a 46 kb file. The version 8 file looks cleaner. The skewed file was scanned in ...

Winstar88 then used the same file and came up with file size of 703 kb using Enhance Scanned Pages. Wouldn't the deskew process in either feature need to decompress the image, rotate, ...
