10.6: How to use OCR with HP multi-function printers
Authored by: codine on Feb 18, '10 10:08:29AM

I just want to point out a little more specifically... TIFF files are generally saved with the tiff extension in OS X. If you use Preview for example to save your JPEG as an uncompressed TIFF for tesseract it'll make a file ending in .tiff which tesseract won't open, it wants .tif only.

Remember kids... .jpg is a JPEG, and tif is a TIFF. Thank DOS for it's 3 character file extensions causing that. If you're going to automate converting JPEG to TIFF and passing it on to this script, be sure to enforce a single letter f in the extension.
