Step 1: Image processing keys

--dontCorrectSkew

  • New CLI 11 R2
  • By default skew is corrected. This option specifies not to correct skew.
Key Parameters Default
–idcs no
- -dontCorrectSkew

--correctSkewMode

  • The skew angle for an image is calculated using information about the so called “black squares”.
Key Parameters Default
-ics BlackSquaresHorizontally
BlackSquaresVertically
HorizontalLines
VerticalLines
HorizontalText
VerticalText
HorizontalText
VerticalText
- -correctSkewMode

--cropImage

  • Crops the image prior to its processing (useful for book pages photos: all background will be cropped, only the page will remain).
Key Parameters Default
-ics no
- -cropImage

--backgroundFillingColor

  • Specifies the color used for filling the areas which are added to the image after skew correction.
    The int value is calculated from the RGB triplet using the formula: (red value) + (256 x green value) + (65536 x blue value).
  • The default value of this key is -1, which means that the color is determined automatically.
Key Parameters Default
-ibfc int value of the color -1
(automatic detection)
- -backgroundFillingColor

--createPreview

  • Creates preview page for the prepared image.
Key Parameters Default
-icp no
- -createPreview

--imageCompression

  • Specifies how an image should be compressed during conversion to the internal format.
Key Parameters Default
-ic NoCompression
Compress
Auto
Auto
- -imageCompression

--invertImage

  • Inverts the colors of the prepared image.
Key Parameters Default
-ii no
- -invertImage

--mirrorImage

  • Mirrors the prepared image around its vertical axis.
Key Parameters Default
-im no
- -mirrorImage

--overwriteResolution

  • Allows to overwrite resolution of the prepared image.
  • Note: when processing vector PDFs this key is applied before the rasterization. If you would prefer keeping the input physical size, then use -irvr key instead.
Key Parameters Default
-ior no
- -overwriteResolution

--resizeVectorImage

  • New CLI 11 R6
  • The key allows to overwrite the resolution of the vector PDF after its rasterization.
  • This key intended to be used only for vector PDFs.
  • The value is specified in dpi.
Key Parameters Default
-irvr value in dpi
- -resizeVectorImage

--convertToBWImage

  • Leaves only black-and-white planes in the prepared image.
Key Parameters Default
-ibw no
- -convertToBWImage

--useFastBinarization

  • Speeds up binarization. Please be aware of the fact, that the quality may deteriorate.
Key Parameters Default
-iufb no
- -useFastBinarization

--previewHeight

  • Specifies the height in pixels of the preview page.
Key Parameters Default
-iph height in pixels of the preview page 90
- -previewHeight

--previewWidth

  • Specifies the width in pixels of the preview page.
Key Parameters Default
-ipw width in pixels of the preview page 64
- -previewWidth

--imageRotation

  • Specifies the rotation angle to apply to the image during preparation.
Key Parameters Default
-ir NoRotation
Clockwise
Counterclockwise
Upsidedown
- -imageRotation

--xResolutionToOverwrite

  • Specifies the value in dpi to which the horizontal resolution of the image is reduced if the -ior key is used.
Key Parameters Default
-ixr horizontal resolution in dpi 300
- -xResolutionToOverwrite

--yResolutionToOverwrite

  • Specifies the value in dpi to which the vertical resolution of the image is reduced if the -ior key is used.
Key Parameters Default
-iyr vertical resolution in dpi 300
- -yResolutionToOverwrite

--dontAutoOverwriteResolution

  • Disables automatic overwriting of resolution. This option can be useful in case images always have correct resolution.
Key Parameters Default
-idaor no
- -dontAutoOverwriteResolution

--photoProcessingMode

  • Specifies whether the input image should be treated as a photo. If a photo is processed, special algorithms are used for such image on different stages of image processing.
    When Auto is used, automatic detection is performed whether the image is a photo or not.
Key Parameters Default
-ippm TreatAsPhoto
TreatAsNonPhoto
Auto
Auto
- -photoProcessingMode

--geometryCorrectionMode

  • Specifies whether geometrical distortions (perspective on photos, curved lines from scanned books, etc.) should be removed during page preprocessing.
    When Auto is used, automatic detection is performed whether geometry correction needs to be performed or not.
Key Parameters Default
-igcm Correct
DontCorrect
Auto
Auto
- -geometryCorrectionMode

--enhanceLocalContrast

  • Specifies whether the local contrast of the image should be increased. Such preprocessing may increase the quality of recognition.
    Note: Using this option is meaningful for color and gray images only.
Key Parameters Default
-ielc no
- -enhanceLocalContrast

--correctShadowsAndHighlights

  • With Yes the image preprocessing will include correction of excessive shadows and highlighting to improve recognition quality.
    Note: This property is designed for use with photographs only.
Key Parameters Default
-icsah Yes
No
Auto
Auto
- -correctShadowsAndHighlights

--equalizeBrightness

  • Equalizes the image brightness. This option is suitable for the following types of images:
    • Scanned images of black-and-white documents. You can change the background color of a scanned image from gray to white and increase image contrast.
    • Photos of black-and-white document. You can change the background color of a photo to white, increase image contrast, and even brightness of a photo made under poor lighting conditions or with a flash turned on.
    • Photos of color documents. This option provides the same effect as for photos of black-and-white documents, but it may reduce color brightness and make gray elements too light. Use the option for photos of color documents carefully.
  • Note: This option is meaningful for gray and color images only.
  • With WhiteBackground brightness of the image is evened so that the background becomes really white.
Key Parameters Default
-ieqbr NonwhiteBackground
WhiteBackground
- -equalizeBrightness
  • Note. Full keys are marked by italic.
