Splitting a Double-Page Spread Image Created from a Book that You Scanned, into Two

A double-page spread image created from a book that you scanned can be split into two pages, one on the right page and one on the left page.

When a double-page spread image in a JPEG format is split, the image is split into two images.

The double-page spread image can be split into two right after the documents are scanned or after the scanned image is imported into ScanSnap Home.
