KB0000003 – Recostar Image Size Limitation




Ephesoft Version:

All Windows Versions



Problems can present themselves when you are processing large image files using Recostar on all Ephesoft Windows versions.

Some problems you will see are:

– Prolonged Processing Times

– Backed Up Batch Instances

– Time Out Errors

Root Cause:

Recostar has the following Image size Limitation:

Maximum document height : 12000 pixels

Maximum document width: 16000 pixels



If you are using larger files it may be necessary to adjust your imported Tif files so it will automatically adjust the images you need to process in Ephesoft.

By using the following value of IM Convert Output Image Parameters you will be able to do this.


-resize 4000×4000> -compress LZW

In this example the specified parameter will only resize the image which has dimension greater than 4000×4000 pixels and it will also maintain the aspect ratio of the image. By doing this Recostar is now able to OCR images successfully.
