LEAD Adds Exciting New Web APIs to LEADTOOLS Cloud Services

We’ve released an update to LEADTOOLS Cloud Services that adds four new Web APIs, as well as stability, speed, and accuracy improvements. The new APIs are Document and Image Merging, AAMVA ID Recognition, Redaction, and Business Card Recognition. The new Redaction and Merge APIs work with both document and image formats. These Web APIs can be used in any programming environment that can make a web request, such as PHP, Python, and Perl, C#, and JavaScript, and are sure to enhance many desktop, mobile, and web applications.

Document and Image Merging

The Document and Image Merging Web API can merge any arrangement of images and documents into a single file. You can specify a range of pages, an array of pages, or all pages to merge. If the target format is a document-type, the API will retain the text and use OCR to only merge an image.

AAMVA ID Recognition

This Web API detects and decodes PDF417 barcodes located on the backside of driver’s licenses. Users can extract all information on the ID card, including name, birth date, address, and issuer.


LEAD has implemented a new redact feature within the Document and Image Conversion Web API for easy redaction on social security numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses in both document and image formats. Developers can provide RegEx patterns to describe which information should be redacted.

Business Card Recognition

The advanced Business Card Recognition Web API finds and extracts contact information from business cards. The Web API uses LEADTOOLS’ image processing and OCR to capture important fields such as name, email, phone, and company.
