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.

If there is text printed over a picture in your document, draw a Background Picture area around this text. 

  1. In the Image window, select the tool on the toolbar and draw a frame around the picture.
    Note: If you do not see this tool on the toolbar, add it. See Toolbars for detailed instructions.
  2. Start the OCR process.

You can change an existing area to Picture or Background Picture. Right-click the area and select Change Area Type>Picture or >Background Picture respectively.

For details, see Adjusting Area Types and Area Borders.
