Hi,
Can anyone tell me the best/easiest programme (free of course) that will allow me to scan a document straight to a PDF file.

What kind of printer do you have? My HP came with software to do just that, and it works great. I would personally try anything before using Acrobat.

Carpo, he was asking for a free software solution. I believe Adobe pro is not an option....

For a free and simple way.

scan your Document as a image file. (.jpeg, tif, etc...) then use a free pdf writer to convert to a pdf format.

some free pdf writer software are

another question, would be what brand of scanner do you have. usually it will come with software (HP or cannon) so you can automatically save it as a pdf file.

or try http://www.snapfiles.com/get/scan2pdf.html

Most scanners these days offer scan to PDF capabilities. As it was mentioned above, HP does, and Dell does too.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
