Learning the settings for your scanning can make a difference too. When I started scanning I use the K1000 defaults. I got some good scans but after playing with a number of books and different settings I find most pages will now scan in at 98.6 or above with many pages at 100. I have also found when you take a over all rating for a book it's the early pages and table of contents that bring that rating down. I am finding too that FineReader will do a table of contents much better than scansoft.

There are others who do just terrific scans. It really pays to mess around with optimizing settings before beginning. Quality is so much improved with a little up front work. Books can get on to the public part of the site much faster if we do not have to fix them so much. Is there some guidance we can give people to stop getting all those line feeds which just show up in the middle of sentences or, worse, in the middle of words. I have a sort of procedure I use to clean them all out but not having them in the first place would help. What setting in what program is causing this? I run across it particularly in older submissions. E.
