Extracting scanned image from pdf

Post by wings software » Fri Feb 20, 2015 2:23 pm


I'm trying to extract the scanned image from a pdf using more or less the example code of PXCp_GetDocImageAsXCPage. The problem is dat the OCR software (ReadIRIS) that translates the scan to a pdf creates two images per page. When I extract them, the colors don't seem to match the colors of the original document. In the pdf they are rendered correctly. But in my image files, red becomes something like blue. I already tried saving as a PNG with ImageFormat_ARGB_8, but that doesn't help either.

I can send you the pdf, if you like, but I can't include it here in the forum.

Have you any idea of what I'm missing here?

Hello Jan,

Yes - having the sample files will definitely help. Please send them to support@tracker-software.com with a link back to this topic inside the e-mail body, and we will take a look at them.
