Don't know if this is the right place to ask this.
Past year I was using a software in ubuntu which was for batch processing scanned pages (like comic books).
I have took photos of lots of pages using a digital camera (nothing illegal, all are my own creation) and need the software again to batch adjust the angle and make the pages as flat as possible.

Please tell me the name of the software if you know it or a similar tool.
The texts and images are a little skewed because I shot the photos with a slight angle and not directly from front (to avoid the reflection of the flash light). That open source tool (which I don't remember its name) detected the amount of skew-ness and automatically fixed it.

I did spend some time remembering what did lead me to find that software last year, and I remembered it was linked to my finding of DIY book scanner (http://diybookscanner.org/)
So went ahead and in their forum found the name of the software (one of their sub-forums is dedicated to scan tailor there).
They seem like a bunch of nice helpful people, registered in their forum but it's been 2-3 days and still my account is not activated :sad:
