Bug fix: Automator action problems introduced in previous update have been corrected
Prizmo 2.0.5 — March 2nd 2013

New: New documents are now set to the last chosen document type (Text / Image / Business Card). This makes it easier to process several documents of the same type in a row.
Bug fix: editing of business card information now behaves correctly after affecting recognized text to a field (Mountain Lion only).
Bug fix: page numbering during OCR is now correctly reported.

Fixed: scanning window is now accessible on second scan under Lion.
Prizmo 2.0.2 — November 20th 2012
New: Page cleanup: page can be cleaned up (previously known as normalize) to remove uneven lighting or texture. Specific gray cleanup (maximize contrast) or color cleanup (preserve color information) can be chosen. Gray cleanup works well for document taken on the go, while color cleanup is appropriate for whiteboard images written with color pens. Cleanup can now also be activated automatically from the advanced preferences for camera images.
Page thumbnails are now preserved as part of the document for faster document opening.
Screen grabbing formatting option: you can now decide to preserve line breaks (for source code for instance), or instead to make a continuous text
Screen grabbing now automatically recognizes negative input images (bright text on dark background). Ideal to get code from WWDC slides.
Default export type is now PDF for text documents, and preserved for the next export.
Export services can now be removed from the export palette in Prizmo preferences if not needed.
Pro Pack only: In Automator, Prizmo action can now use Automator variables for output file name.
Fix: Scanner feeder handling improvements. Scanned pages order is now preserved.
