    Take a break, Mate. Get some rest. This place is not your home. Generally,
    we are experts. Come back as a students and all will be better.

    Rest to you, Joe.

    Peace,
    Pico

    How about PhotoElf:

    "A program called photoELF has a much faster semi-automatic crop"

    $29.99

    http://www.photoelf.com/

    I have not used it so I don't know how good it is.

    I haven't look to much further but this free patent

    http://www.freepatentsonline.com/6456732.html

    may be in use in some programs. You'd have to do
    a google search to find them....

    If you want to enjoy life, then don't make yourself miserable with
    impressionistic assumptions regarding what and what cannot be done with
    Photoshop.

    Applause..!!!
    It is as if he is frustrated
    but end many letters with a hint for 'respect for the elderly'.
    He should deserve respect and not only insist on it
    because he's been in school with your parents.

    I rather doubt that Joe is elderly, or older than I am. What does it matter
    anyway?

    That is why I have been trying to tell you do not lie because anyone who
    knows the basic of Photoshop knows quite well that Photoshop can do many
    wonderful thing *but* the only thing it can't do (at least not yet) is doing
    what you say it can.

    Yes, you can record the commands and play back what you recorded, but
    that's about it. But you can't batch different needs on hundreds of
    different scanned photos, that just won't work.

    Joe I am betting English is not your native language, I was hoping that was
    the reason for your lack of comprehension and your inability to understand
    the original post request

    THE OP ALREADY KNOWS HOW TO DO IT IN PSHOP
    SO YOUR INSISTENCE THAT HE CANNOT DO IT>>>>>BUSTED IN HIS FIRST SENTENCE
    HE ASKS IF THERE IS A CHEAPER PROGRAM TO DO IT>>>>>> NOT IF IT COULD BE DONE

    AND YOU ARE WRONG
    YES IT CAN BE DONE ACCORDING TO PEOPLE HERE WHO ARE MORE KNOWLEDGEABLE AND
    ACCORDING TO THE ORIGINAL POSTER WHO ASKED .........EVEN HE KNEW IT CAN BE
    DONE


    SEE MY LAST UNANSWERED POST

    A free solution without photoshop

    Hey I've just had the same problem, didn't find nice free solution anywhere so I made my own. :)

    You will need to download and install ImageMagick (from imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php#windows) - this is a tool for command line processing of images.

    Then create a batch file (blah-blah-blah.bat) in the folder with your images, open it with notepad, paste code from snipplr.com/view/52310/automatically-trimcrop-whiteblackany-borders-from-images and run.

    You can easily set file extension and tolerance, if you need something else - try looking it up in ImageMagick's documentation. For example there is an option to trim only borders of certain color, save cropped regions, etc. Turns out ImageMagick is a very powerfull tool, and IMO much simpler to use than photoshop scripts for batch processing.

    Worked great for me (I wanted to trim white margins from scanned books and comics), with higher values for tolerance it should work for photos.

    ps. sorry i can't post normal links, the forum doesn't allow it.
