Background removal

Post by Den44 » Sun Apr 14, 2019 2:35 pm

I often use the tool „Background Removal“ in the menu „Enhance Scanned Pages“. This works very well with scanned text pages :D .
Unwanted is the file size after the change described above.
The file size usually doubles :( . This is illogical, because normally the reduction of the background should minimize the file size, but not double it. This means that the „Background Removal“ tool is not used by me. If you use the option „Apply Adaptiv Compression“ afterwards, unnecessary pixels will appear around the text/letters again.

Hello Den44,

Could I ask for a copy of the file you are testing with? It is likely that there is an option that needs to be changed to help with this, so I would like to run a few tests over here and see if we cant find the right combination.

Kind regards,
