Hey all.

I've got a BIG project on my hands, 520 books which all need to be digitized. This is the result of me loosing a bet. *sigh*

Anyway, I've found three scanning apps, but they all leave a LOT to be desired, I was wondering if anyone could recommend one?

Generally needs to be able to thread images togehter, some 'unpaper' functionailty would be nice to remove all the rubbish from a scan, as would OCR.

Simple Scan is FAR too simple.

XSane just has a stupidly complex UI for it's basic featureset.

Scanner Utility does far too little.

gscan2pdf has all the functionality I want, but is as buggy as hell.
