kydara I've been looking for a long time for a piece of software that can determine if a PDF is an image-only or has been OCR'ed. I've come across a few bandaid solutions but nothing really reliable.

For clarification, I do not need software to do the OCR; I already have software to do that. I just need to identify PDFs which NEED to be OCRed. Obviously, need to do this in batch form. If it were only a few PDFs, I could just open them and try to select text. If I can, then it's been OCRed. If I can't, then it's an image and I can send it to my OCR engine. But doing this for thousands of PDFs manually is impractical.

Can this software help with this task? Please be specific in your answer. Thanks.

Hi, could you please download this version and give it a try (

So what you do is first select the 'count images and text option' on the PDF file list toolbar (on the right panel).
Then select your PDF files in the file browser. The PDF file list will then be populated with details of the selected files.
Theoretically, PDF files with only images and no text should show a text count of 0 and image count of > 0.
Click on the text count column to sort the files by that value.
Now remove the files with a text count > 0 by either selecting the range of files using the shift-mouse click combo and click on the 'Remove selected files from list' button (next to the 'Copy to folder' button),
deselect the files with text count > 0.
Now click on the 'Copy to folder' button, select the folder you want to copy the un-OCRed files to, and the selected files will be copied over for you to scan.

eb235 Is it possible to install a trial for version 2.7 on a computer with a valid but older license ?
I installed v2.7 on a different folder but I get an almost blank windows (File+Help only, no explorer-style pane) when I launch the new version.
Now I have uninstalled the new version but it seems this wiped out the older version. I reinstalled v2.7 but only to get the same symptoms.

I assume from the pop-up I get at launch that Easy PDF Explorer is able to notice there is an older license (deep in the registry ?) on the computer but interprets the installation of a new version, too recent for the installed license, as trying to circumvents the older license rather than simply trying to "trial" the new features.

I hope my question will receive an answer. But right now I do have a suggestion :
rather than only verifying the license at launch, that is once an installation has ruined a running program, why not test it at the start of an installation ?
That way the user is warned that (s)he will be stuck if (s)he proceeds. Or (s)he may enroll for a trial period of the new version...

Namely, what I was after was testing the extraction of pages from a PDF (not present in my old 2.2 version). Because some PDFs have split images and extracting such images as images would require stitching them afterward, a cumbersome process.

Dude, I can sort of understand your frustration, but:
1. You should have expected that the new install would have overwritten the old one.
2. You should have backed up first.
3. Not for nothing bro, but it's $5. Just pony up & upgrade.

DH007 1. If my current licence expires in 2022, can I have the new licence installed over and it would add the time to my current licence?
2. Do you plan to offer on sale Easy Excel Analysis? I would buy straight away if available just to add to my portfolio.

Yeoh Ray Mond @DH007 - you should activate the new license after the validity of the existing license has lapsed.

- at the moment, we do not have any plans to hold a BitsDuJour promotion for Easy Excel Analysis
