    My philosophy for communication:
    Always assume the best and friendliest interpretation of my words that you can, I have no reason to be a rude dude at all, except you force me to!

    Creation of e-books
    (Algorithm which is used by me)
    Step 1
    Scanning
    Actually scanning consists of three stages: scannings of a cover, main part of the book, color inserts and illustrations.
    Not to use the FineReader program at this stage! (this program is necessary for OCR)
    The Grayscale mode (shades of gray), for color illustrations and covers - True Color (full-color).
    It is possible to leave other installations by default.
    Permission of scanning - 300 dpi.
    Format of the output file: Uncompressed TIFF!
    Step 2
    ScanKromsator
    Split pages, cut pages, despeckle, deskew, correct illumination etc.
    Standard setting up program (guide in Russian, but it is possible to look at screenshots; only on a tab Book to choose “Page width – Auto” and “Page height – Auto”):
    http://rutracker.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2160930
    Format of the output file: Uncompressed TIFF (600 dpi)!
    Step 3
    ABBYYFineReader
    OCR + convert to pdf file
    User’s Guide for FineReader 11:
    https://www.abbyy.com/finereader/11/user-guide/
    Format of the output file: PDF (or FB2, DJVU, EPUB…)

    Or you could use Adobe Acrobat which is able of scanning and OCR and much more.
    Download it form any trustworthy torrent.

    I would Recommend Adobe Acrobat Pro, cracked versions are easily available.

    Secondly, I would suggest you to scan pages at 600dpi for the extra details.

    Thirdly, Use ClearScan instead of regular OCR to detect text. ClearScan on 600dpi have impeccable results.

    PM me if you need further guidance.
