ADR templates queries

Post by nickcami » Fri Mar 22, 2013 9:58 am

I am in the process of designing a .NET application to categorize documents using ADR. I have the following queries:

1. If many documents are added to an ADR template, does this slow the ADR process or speed it up?
2. Is it faster to run the ADR process on black and white images only? Does colour make a difference to the speed?
3. Can ADR work with PDF documents or is it limited to TIFF?

Thanks
Nick

Hi,

Here are the answers:
1. If many documents are added to an ADR template, does this slow the ADR process or speed it up?
It does not. They are treated as one template in the end.

2. Is it faster to run the ADR process on black and white images only? Does colour make a difference to the speed?
The difference is so small that it is even hard to mark. So no.

3. Can ADR work with PDF documents or is it limited to TIFF?
ADR works with images of any extension. For PDFs, you can do the same, by converting the PDF page to an image and then running the ADR.
To render a pdf page to an image you have to use the GdPicturePDF object, load the pdf onto it, select the page, then use RenderPageToGdPictureImage.

I hope this helps.
Cheers,
Sami
