PNG?

Posted by ViktorF about 2 years ago

Do you have the images in grayscale PNG format?

Storing scanned text in JPEG format does not seem to be the best decision quality wise…

Hello, You can try using xnconvert which might be able to convert jpeg to png images.

It is not a problem to read the JPEG files, certainly.

What I wanted to point out is that JPEG is a lossy format blurring the edges of letter in the scanned text pages, while PNG would be a lossless format keeping them sharp. Certainly at the cost of bigger file size.
