Forum: toronto Subject: Better scanning quality wanted

Please let me mention the following links: http://www.archive.org/details/dictionaryofengl01grieuoft http://www.archive.org/details/dictionaryofengl02grieuoft operator: scanner-haley-freeman@... http://www.archive.org/details/dictionaryofengl01grie http://www.archive.org/details/dictionaryofengl02grie operator: scanner-jay-carroll@ Within the archive.org there are 2 bad quality copies of the above books printed in 1899 (10th edition) and 1885 (9th edition) made by different operators suggesting the difficulty of the scanning problem due to the fact that the left and right pages do have different contrast levels. This implies that automatic exposures during the scanning process should be excluded; only manual settings should apparently be used instead in order to account for the different contrast levels in relation to the low contrast page. A good sample quality of a much older edition as of 1857 has been revealed by operator scanner-jennifer-mansfield@... The link to follow is: http://www.archive.org/details/dictionaryofengl00grierich Now, it's worth comparing the qualities of the book scans. Thank you.
