Image Data Developer Tools

Namespace: VB
1. Kodak Wang Desktop Imaging. Come with Windows OS. Don't have OCR and tools to enhance quality of images. I couldn't find any docs, so I used docs and samples for KodakProfessionalDesktopImaging: Igor - the help file for the controls is IMGOCXD.HLP

2. KodakProfessionalDesktopImaging. Not expensive ($99 as of 2002). Have OCR ActiveX and some tools to enhance quality of images. Don't support scanner add-ons like imprinter.
Looks like it is here now:

3. PixelTranslations. Expensive, but support scanner add-ons like imprinter. Not tried yet.

4. Image Magick - powerfull, cross platform, opensource and so free.

5. Dosadi's EZTWAIN. See A set of DLLs for driving TWAIN-compatible devices and manipulating the captured images. See also Controlling TWAIN devices from within VFP.

6. Dynamic Web TWAIN - can work with any TWAIN compatible devices and upload the scanned images to web servers, TIFF, JPEG, PNG and PDF encoder and decoder built-in. Compatible with IE on Windows, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera on Windows and Mac. Provided by Dynamsoft.

--- "the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It works on many operating systems, in many languages." Developers will like this because it supports plugins that can be written in script-fu, tiny-fu and other languages: - GOCR is an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program, developed under the GNU Public License. It converts scanned images of text back to text files. does BarCodes too.
