Page Counter & Calculation

ABBYY products are often licensed with a system that allows to process a certain number of pages within a period of time. A 'page' in this terminology isa a DIN A4 pages (210 x 297 mm).

Following rules apply:

  • If the page that was processed is smaller than A4, then one A4 page is counted
  • If the page that was processed is bigger than A4 (for example A3) the page counter gets reduced as follows:
    • A3 = 2 x A4
    • A2 = 2 x A3 = 4 x A4 - so minimum 4 pages will be counted
  • In reality, the situation is more complicated, because the physical paper size is a standard size, however the size of the digital image depends on the scan/image resolution.
    This means that at the end, the important value is the the number of pixels of an image.

Page Count and Paper Size

  • For pages larger than A4 the counter of recognized pages increases by the number
    (area of the page)/(area of A4) )
  • To calculate the width and height of a page we use the following formula:
    int imageWidth = image→GetWidth() / max( 1, image→GetResolution() )
    int imageHeight = image→GetHeight() / max( 1, image→GetResolution() ); [image is an Image Object].
    • This object represents a single “image plane” (black-and-white, color or preview) of an image in internal format.
    • imageWidth and imageHeight are values in inches.
    • If you need the size in centimeters you just need to know 1 inch = 2,54 cm.
