Scan Tailor is post-processing software for improving the quality of the scans you produce with your scanner.

From the website:

''Scan Tailor is an interactive post-processing tool for scanned pages. It performs operations such as page splitting, deskewing, adding/removing borders, and others. You give it raw scans, and you get pages ready to be printed or assembled into a PDF or DJVU file. Scanning, optical character recognition, and assembling multi-page documents are out of scope of this project.''

Mac Support

Support for Mac is still in development. However, experimental OSX builds are available at
