Have you corrected the distorted book image with Book Image Viewer?

If the shape of the book was not detected correctly or the outline of the book is not aligned with the actual shape of the book due to manual correction, lines in the book image may be distorted.

Correct the distorted book image by aligning the corner points and the outline with the shape of the book in Book Image Viewer.
