Binarisation is the process of converting a colour or graysale image into a black and white image.

This functionality is exposed in several places in EzeScan as follows:

1. On the Job Admin form Image Enhancement tab, there is an 'Auto Binarise' option. When a job containing coloured pages is imported or scanned, each page is analysed to see whether it is a black and white image or a colour image. Images that contain only black and white are then converted from colour into black and white. Images that are colour will remain as colour.

2. On the Thumbnail Viewer Menu there is an 'Binarise (Auto Detection)' option. When a job containing coloured pages is dispayed in the viewer, each page is analysed to see whether it is a black and white image or a colour image. Images that contain only black and white are then converted from colour into black and white. Images that are colour will remain as colour.

3. On the Image Viewer Menu there is an 'Binarise (Auto Detection) option. When a job containing coloured pages is dispayed in the viewer, the current page is analysed to see whether it is a black and white image or a colour image. If the current page contains only black and white it is converted from colour into black and white. Pages that are colour will remain as colour.

4. On the Thumbnail Viewer Menu there is an 'Binarise (Force To BW)' option. When a job containing coloured pages is dispayed in the viewer, each colour page is converted from colour into black and white.

5. On the Image Viewer Menu there is an 'Binarise (Force To BW)' option. The current page is converted from colour into black and white.

6. On the Viewer Toolbar there is a "Binarise Current Page' icon. When pressed the current page is converted from colour into black and white.
