[Athen] Fixing a Tiff

Hi again Debee,
One other thought I had is if you can convert the Tif to PDF. Pdftk has a
collate feature that seems it'd solve it in that case.

I do not quite understand, sorry. So are you saying you have two files, one
with all odd pages and one with all even?
Anyways I looked in FineReader, and if I create a new OCR project, then
choose to open images, there are extra options there and one is to split
It appears that anything that can be done during a scanning process can be
done when opening images instead using FineReader.
If you can get a copy of that it may be worth a look?

I have a tiff of a book that was scanned several years ago by a student
He did a superb job, except he scanned all the odd-numbered pages in a
chapter, then flipped the stack over and scanned all the even-numbered
pages. He created a multi-page tiff for each chapter.
He then used some software a friend wrote to reorder everything the way he
wanted it and created his own PDF. All I got were the original tiff files
-- one file per chapter - before he graduated.
Anyway, OmniPage and both Kurzweils have a flip pages feature, but it works
when you are actually scanning, not when you have an already-scanned tiff
I looked through the documentation for ImageMagick but I couldn't find
anything about automatically reordering pages.
I want to find a batch process for reordering the pages. I was thinking of
separating it in to individual pages img001.tif, img002.tif, etc.. I have
software to do that . and then renaming the even numbered pages to 2A, 4A
etc. but that's still manual labor.
I don't care what the resulting format is as long as pages are in order and
it will OCR if needed for a future request.
Anyone have any bright ideas? I can write code if I have to but I was hoping
someone already had a program that did it.
