XSane is a graphical scanning frontend
for the SANE-library. This page
is dedicated to some enhancement patches for XSane.
- Scale to a given output width and height:
|The xsane-viewer of a scanned image gives you the possibility
to scale the image according to given x/y scale rates.
||The scale menu is enhanced of the resulting output width and
height values. If you change the output width and height the
scale rates are adjusted accordingly.
- Do the selection of the scan area in the preview with a given
proportion. The selection will be determined by a given proportion, say
4:3 ( for a resulting scanning which will then scale nicely to a 1024x768
output image) or 1:1 for quadratic results.
- XSane had a problem when saving images with more than 8 bit per pixel
as jpegs. This patch fixes the problem with converting the image data to
8 bit values before calling the jpeg library.
- Add the filename counter feature to the Viewer mode of XSane.
- The original XSane has an extra phase when the scanned image is rotated
(scan->save->read->rotate->save). This patch gets rid of the
extra rotation phase. The scanned data is directly stored with the
rotation/mirroring into the output file (scan->rotate->save).
- Show the red, green and blue values of the pixel where the cursor is in
