Picture Not Detected

Picture areas mark the pictures contained in your document. You can also use picture areas to select any text fragments that you want treated as pictures (ABBYY FineReader will not perform OCR on these areas). If the program fails to detect a picture automatically, use the Picture tool to draw a picture area around the picture manually.

  1. On the toolbar at the top of the Image window, select tool and then use the mouse to draw a rectangle around the picture on your image.
  2. Re-launch the OCR process.

You can change the type of any area to Picture by right-clicking inside the area and selecting Change Area Type>Picture.
