  • Publication number: 20180249031
    Abstract: In accordance with an embodiment, an image forming apparatus comprises a reading section, a gradation conversion section and an image processing section. The reading section positioned at a back surface of a sheet which is a reading object is provided with a back surface part having a predetermined color at the back surface side of the sheet to read at least one surface of the sheet by using the back surface part as a background. The gradation conversion section executes a gradation conversion processing of enlarging a level difference in brightness at a highlight side on image data read by the reading section. The image processing section identifies an area of the sheet part and an area of the back surface part in the image data based on the image data to which the gradation conversion processing is executed.
