      Theoretically, this is ideal for straightening ("deskewing") large amounts of scanned pages, i.e. images with some straight lines of text. It does its job of automatically rotating thes images to the right degree excellently. Unfortunately, the quality of the output images is not that excellent. The resolution is diminished and blur is introduced. I tried to follow the author's suggestion to convert to png instead of jpg, but it made no difference.
