DeskewCommand Class

Summary

Rotates the specified image to straighten it.

Syntax

C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
WinRT C#
C++
public class DeskewCommand : RasterCommand 
@interface LTDeskewCommand : LTRasterCommand 
public class DeskewCommand extends RasterCommand 
function Leadtools.ImageProcessing.Core.DeskewCommand() 

Remarks

This command is typically used to automatically straighten scanned images, including bank checks. This command is available in the Document/Medical Toolkits.

This command contains a special algorithm for detecting the skewed checks. To use this, add the following flags to Flags property (DeskewCommandFlags.UseCheckDeskew | DeskewCommandFlags.UseLineDetectionCheckDeskew)

  • If the Flags property or the flags parameter of the Constructor contains DeskewCommandFlags.ReturnAngleOnly, the command will update the Angle property without rotating the image.
  • The calculated rotation is limited to 20 degrees in either direction. This command is intended for images, such as scanned documents, that are mainly horizontal lines of text. The results are less predictable with other types of images.
  • This command includes an option to skip deskewing if the angle is very small.
  • This command does not support 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images. If the image is 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color, the command will not throw an exception.
  • This command supports signed/unsigned data images.
  • This command does not support 32-bit grayscale images.

For more information, refer to Introduction to Image Processing With LEADTOOLS and Deskewing. In Silverlight versions of LEADTOOLS, this image processing command will fail if the image data for the RasterImage object is stored internally using a Silverlight WriteableBitmap object. For more information, refer to Image Processing Command Limitations in Silverlight.

Example
