    Remarks
    Here is a "good" sequence of operations for the document image processing:
    1. Invert an inverted image (AutoInvertCommand)
    2. Clear a border of an image (BorderClearCommand)
    3. Remove halftone from an image (HalftoneRemovalCommand)
    4. Deskew an image (DeskewCommand)
    5. Remove hole punches from an image (HolePunchRemovalCommand)
    6. Remove lines from an image (LineRemovalCommand)
    7. Invert inverted text regions on an image (AutoTextInvertCommand)
    8. Despeckle an image (DespeckleCommand)
    9. Remove border of an image (BorderRemovalCommand)
    Example
    This example shows how to load an image of document from disk, prepare the image of document for OCR and save the result to the new image file.
