Open files

open multiple pre-scanned images and detect individual photosAutosplitter offers scanned image extractor feature for people who have already scanned a lot of photos and saved them into files. You can open multiple files or a whole folder of pre-scanned images for autodetection.
Please select output folder and file format before launching this feature. Click "Open Files(s)" and select multiple files by holding ctrl or shift. If you have a whole folder full of pre-scanned images, use the "Open Folder" button and find the location. Starting from v1.12, you can open multipage TIF files - they will be handled as if you have opened multiple files at once.
WARNING! Files in the output folder will be overwritten without warning or confirmation in case of a filename conflict!

Batch detection

AutoSplitter will open each file and find and save the individual photos to the target folder. This may take a lot of time if you have large amounts of photos.
Photos detected will be saved to disc (in the output folder) immediately. Of course, the detection might be inaccurate therefore you'll have the chance to review and change the results in the following steps.

Batch review

review batch of mass detected photosAfter batch detection has been completed, a new panel will open on the left side of the user interface. This panel shows thumbnails of all processed images with the detected photos framed in red. Scroll this area with your mousewheel or click into the image list and use cursor keys and page up/down to navigate. If an image needs manual adjustment (misdetection for example) press enter to open the selected image. Doubleclick on a thumbnail will also open the image for editing.
What the status text below the thumbnails mean:
all saved: all splits (framed with red) saved to disc as shown in the thumbnail.
changed, unsaved: one or more splits have been adjusted but the change has not been saved. If you exit the batch review before saving these splits, your changes will be lost.
deleted: all splits of this image have been exluded.
file error: file cannot not be opened. Might damaged, missing, extension does not match format, out of memory error during load, etc.

If there are any changed files, you will see a "Find >>" button at the top of the review panel. This button will jump to the first changed, but unsaved image to let you find and save the photos quickly. Click the black arrow shown in this screenshot to hide/show the batch review summary.
Remember, there is NO warning or confirmation. Files will always be overwritten during batch review.

Delete images during batch review

You might have included some unwanted images in your batch process. How to mark this image and all its splits for deletion? Simple, just right click the thumbnail and see the option in the popup menu. You can also undelete it in the same way.

Finishing batch review

When you have reviewed all the results and saved all the changes, click "Finish review" button in the main menu area. This will close the batch review panel and you will NOT be able to return to the review unless you start all over with the detection. Finishing the review will also physically delete the unnecessary photos from the output folder. Unnecessary photos are the ones you deleted during review or marked for deletion.

Resuming batch review

If you finish a review, you cannot return to it. On the other hand, restarting the program will preserve and resume the review session automatically. You can safely restart during batch review without losing data in the process.
