  • You can cut margins at top, bottom, left, right and center of the image (trimming).
  • You can adjust tilt, contrast and brightness.
  • You can convert image to grayscale (black & white image).
  • You can rotate left or right 90 degrees or 180 degrees before and after splitting.

Features of ImagePageSplitter

Supports many types of files
There are four types of target image files: png, jpg, gif, bmp. For png and bmp, full color (24/32 bit), palletized / grayscale format is also supported. For gif, also supports palette images less than 256 colors.

Splitting in detail
You can select split direction from horizontal and vertical. You can also shift the center position of the split left / right / up and down. You can also perform margin cutting (trimming) and image correction as shown below with or without splitting.

Image joining
You can combine two images whose file names are consecutive into one image in left-right and up-down directions. Bonding position (offset) and overlap value can be adjusted. You can combine e-books divided for each page into a double-page spread, or join misaligned e-books and then split again into the correct position.

Cutting (trimming) the margin
Margin cutting (trimming) can be performed for left, right, top, bottom, and center. So you can cut shadows and margins made at edge and center during scanning. Cut amount can be specified as a pixel or as a percentage of image size.

Image correction
Tilt correction (rotation) can be performed on the image before division.
You can also adjust the contrast and brightness.

Grayscale (black and white) conversion
You can convert split images to grayscale (black and white). Convert an old book that has discolored into a correct black and white image.

Rotate and Scaling
You can rotate left or right 90 degrees or 180 degrees before and after splitting, or can scale up or down images after splitting.

Changing file name
It is possible to set file name of split images to favorite serial number (character string + serial number). Of course, you can use the original file name as it is.

Operation setting for each image
You can specify split, margin cut, image correction, grayscale conversion individually for each image, or for all images at once. And you can specify whether or not to process them for each image. You can also copy images not processed to destination folder by changing file name.

Saving and restoring settings
These settings are saved automatically. So you can stop setting in incomplete and do continuations at a later date.

How to apply settings

The settings like split, trimming, image correction, joyning on the "Image split setting" screen can be applied to each image in one of the following two ways.

Individual: Apply individual parameters for each image.

Common: Apply the same parameters to all images.

If you click the "Individual" button, after the current setting is copied to all images, you can individually modify each setting.
Clicking on the "Common" button will apply the current settings to all images regardless of past image settings. If you change the setting, it will be reflected in all images.
If you select "Individual", you can use "Copy", "Paste" button. "Copy" temporarily stores the setting value of the image currently displayed. Then, when you change image and click "Paste", the temporarily stored setting value is set to current image.

Saving and initializing settings

Setting information such as "Input folder", "Output folder", "Image split setting", "Other settings" are saved in your PC when clicking "Start" or "Quit" button. Therefore, when you start the program again, the previous folder designation, trimming designation, etc. are restored.

Restore setting of "Individual" mode
If you wish to resume setting work after exiting the program with "Individual" mode, restart program, open the folder, then click "Individual" button please. Then, the value for each image set in the past are restored. By clicking [>>>] button, you can jump to the last image set individually last time.
Individual setting values are saved for up to 30 days for each input folder name. However, if you change the name of the input folder, the past settings will not be restored.

Storage location of settings
The storage location of settings is following file under the installation folder of this program. Delete these files if you want to reset setting to initial value.

app/ImagePageSplitter.iniCommon setting information
app/dirinfo_[symbol string].txtIndividual settings of each folder

These are all text files. Editing with a text editor will take effect the next time you run. [symbol string] is a string that encodes the target input folder path by base64 (URL-safe).

Common setting information
Common information of this program is stored here. The delimiter is blank or tab character, write information in the form of "keyword  value" (you can insert any number of blanks or tab characters). The character code is UTF-8. In the install folder of this program, a file describing the initial value of setting information list is stored with name of app/parameter.txt. The meaning of each parameter is also explained here. Please refer to it when customizing the setting information list.

Individual settings of each folder
For each folder you worked on, list of image files included therein and there individual setting values are stored. The delimiter is "|". The character code is UTF-8. This information is automatically deleted at the next program startup after 30 days or more from the last update for each folder.

Usage tips

When the color becomes strange
If you specify tilt correction (rotation) etc. to images with small number of palettes (colors), the color may become strange partially. Please check "Translate monochrome / palette image to 24/32bit RGB image when adjustment" on the "Other settings" screen in such a case. You can eliminate the color change.

When contrast, brightness becomes brighter than expected
If contrast and brightness correction are performed on image with a small number of palettes (colors), the output result may become brighter than preview on "Image split settings" screen. In this case, please check "Translate monochrome / palette image to 24/32bit RGB image when adjustment" on the "Other settings" screen.

Tilt correction with only one page tilted
If only one page of the facing image is tilted, please convert them in two steps. First, simply divide it into two pages, then specify "Not" for split, and specify tilt correction only for tilted page.

Division position correction for images with division position shifted
You can modify split position of facing images split at incorrect position. Restore original facing images with "Image joining" and specify splitting correctly. These can be process at once.
