MangAI: Manga Processor/Organizer
#1  lilman 11-18-2011, 03:35 PM
I just released a new manga processor/organizer called MangAI (manga + artificial intelligence). Although there are other scan processing programs available, MangAI boasts some unique features such as easily processing an entire manga series using a single command, auto splitting landscape 2-page scans except when the two pages form one giant image, and reprocessing a series when new chapters have been added without performing repeat work.

Most importantly, MangAI conforms to the Manga Intelligence Model which allows it to automatically organize and sort your input publications by volume-chapter and your input scans by volume-chapter-page. This means you no longer have to spend time to manually extract downloaded archives, specify output names, correctly sort volumes/chapters and the scans within, or combine separate chapter folders into a single volume entity.

-Feature List-
+Image processing:
-Scale width/height (always maintains original aspect ratio)
-Auto trim white space around a scan
-Auto chop white rows and columns within a scan
-Auto rotate scans to desired landscape/portrait orientation
-Full color, grayscale, or grayscale color table
-Specify # of colors
-Change source image format
-Add border after processing to fill specified width/height
-Reduce to maximum dpi
+Supported input sources:
-Single folder of images
-Single .zip/.cbz
-Single .rar/.cbr (Note: Must have compatible unrar program installed on your system. See readme for details)
-Single .pdf
-A folder/archive containing any number of the above items, allowing you to process an entire manga series with one command.
+Supported input image formats:
-Pretty much anything that ImageMagick supports. It’s safe to assume that all major image formats are supported: .jpg, .bmp, .gif, .png, etc…
+Supported output formats:
-Folder of images (any image format supported by ImageMagick should be ok)
-.rar/.cbr (Note: Must have compatible rar program installed on your system. See readme for details)
-.pdf (including right-to-left page ordering)
-.epub (including right-to-left page ordering)
-Binding allows you to combine multiple input sources into a single output
-Three ways to use binding:
-Auto bind chapters into volumes based on interpreted volume-chapter info
-Auto bind groups of a specified size
-Create a bind file to manually specify which chapters to bind into a single volume
+Auto split landscape 2-page scans
-Can detect whether a landscape scan contains two separate pages and split them accordingly
-Tries not to split landscape 2-page scans where the two pages form one big image
+Volume-chapter interpretation:
-Automatically interpret volume-chapter info from sources
-Bind chapters of the same volume (and create a fake volume binding for the latest chapters not yet released in tankobon)
-Supports a large variety of source organization, including:
-Nested folders/archives/pdfs
-Determine volume from parent hierarchy
-Determine volume from observed bounds of a volume’s chapters
-Detect special chapters and a/b chapters
-Conflict resolution (both automatic and manual) when multiple sources map to the same volume-chapter
+Generate a settings file for a variety of ereader devices
-Optimal settings stored for many of the top ereader devices:
-Amazon: kdx, k3, k2, k1
-Apple: ipad
-B&N: nook
-Sony: prs-900, prs-700, prs-650, prs-600, prs-505, prs-500, prs-300
-iRex: iliad, dr800, dr1000
-Ectaco: jb, jbl
-Kobo: kobo2, kobo1
-Can also generate a default settings file if MangAI doesn’t know the optimal settings for your particular ereader device
-Any setting can be changed by the user to meet his/her needs
-Mixed folder/image-level multithreading, allowing you to process multiple folders and images in parallel
-Automatically determines the number of threads to use based on detected cpu cores and workload (you can also manually specify the number of threads)
+Other operations:
-Organize: organizes manga collection by interpreting volume-chapter info without processing images
-Analyze manga collection: returns statistics such as # of file types, # scans, file space usage, etc.
-Analyze manga folder: returns statistics such as width, height, and dpi of each image in the folder
-Create MangAI batch file (available in the CLI only): creates a script to process your entire manga collection using MangAI
+Job management (available in the GUI only):
-Save a job so that you can run it again later (useful if you have added new chapters to a series)

I hope you enjoy your digital manga experience :3
