I cropped the pages in Photoshop to mirror the particular dimension of the booklet (measured it myself) and additional color emphasis to a few of pages that have been lacking it, such a lot particularly to the “character according to line” desk (screenshot #2) which used to be considerably tougher to exploit with out it.

For specified evaluation of the method see “Workflow” on the finish of the torrent description.
