gscan2pdf - A GUI to produce a multipage PDF or DjVu from a scan.


Five clicks are required to scan several pages and then save all or
a selection as a PDF or DjVu file, including metadata if required.

gscan2pdf can control regular or sheet-fed (ADF) scanners with SANE via
libimage-sane-perl, scanimage or scanadf, and can scan multiple pages at
once. It presents a thumbnail view of scanned pages, and permits simple
operations such as cropping, rotating and deleting pages.

OCR can be used to recognise text in the scans, and the output
embedded in the PDF or DjVu.

PDF conversion is done by PDF::API2.

The resulting document may be saved as a PDF, DjVu, multipage TIFF file,
or single page image file.

Changelog for 2.1.5:
* Pass page data to thread just in time to process it, rather than when
  the process is defined. Previously, if the application was still busy,
  say with tesseract whilst the user tried to save, then the resulting
  document would be missing the pages updated by tesseract.
  Closes bug #247 (Error creating PDF image object: Can't call method
  "val" on an undefined value)
* Update to Hungarian translation (thanks to csola)
* Update to Czech translation (thanks to Pavel Borecki)
* Update to German translation (thanks to Tobias Bannert)
