Scanning albums is not an easy task, since the extraction of actual photographs within scans is usually very tedious. This tool allows you to scan as much as you can fit into your scanner and then semi-automatedly extract the contained photographs. The tool also allows to extract scans of multiple single photographs (i.e. without album)

Scanned Image Extractor is a handy C++ / Qt GUI application for working with images obtained from a scanner and having multiple images on one page (e.g. for splitting scanned pages of old family albums).
Scanned Image Extractor is the most simple interface and minimum settings, can work in "semi-automatic" (in an attempt to define the boundaries of the images) and manual mode (needed if the image is too pale or with indistinct borders). The selected area can be expanded, moved, or deleted, the aspect ratio can be set from a template or randomly selected image you can rotate.
Scanned Image Extractor supports preview and cancel the changes made, the extracted images are saved in original format (in formats compatible with Gimp 2.9+), manage app with mouse and/or keyboard combinations.
