Learn to create a PDF file directly from a paper document using your scanner and Adobe Acrobat. Turn the scanned PDF into a smart. Snap a photo of a paper document with the Adobe Scan app on your mobile device and share it with others as a PDF. You can also merge multiple files into one. You cannot scan using Adobe Reader DC - only Adobe Acrobat allows you to scan. Whenever you attach a PDF document to an email, it will only attach that .
You can configure the scanning presets or use the Custom Scan option to scan with the settings of your choice. The scanning presets are not available on Mac OS. Then, in the Acrobat scan interface, select a scanner and a document preset or Custom Scan. Choose Scanner to see the options available. On Windows: Create PDFs from Scanner interface; clicking the settings or gear icon shows all the settings for the selected option. Note: If you want to append the document, which you'll scan, to an existing file, do the following: Choose the Append to Existing File check box.
This option applies optical character recognition OCR and font and page recognition to the text images. Click the Settings icon specify settings in the Recognize Text - Settings dialog box. See Recognize text in scanned documents.
Add Metadata. When selected, the Document Properties dialog box appears after scanning.
In the Document Properties dialog box, you can add metadata, or information about the scanned document, to the PDF file. If you are creating multiple files, you can enter common metadata for all of the files. Default settings are suitable for a wide range of document pages, but you may want to customize settings for higher-quality images, smaller file sizes, or scanning issues.
Apply Adaptive Compression. Divides each page into black-and-white, grayscale, and color regions and chooses a representation that preserves appearance while highly compressing each type of content. The recommended scanning resolutions are dots per inch dpi for grayscale and RGB input, or dpi for black-and-white input. Applies JPEG compression to the colored image content. Use JPEG instead. Applies ZIP compression to the colored image content.
By default, the scanner application dialog box does not open. Monochrome Scans. Applies the JBIG2 compression method to black-and-white input pages. Highest-quality levels use the lossless method; at lower settings, text is highly compressed.
Compatible with Acrobat 5. For compatibility with Acrobat 4. This fast, lossless compression method is compatible with Acrobat 3. Rotates any page that is not square with the sides of the scanner bed, to make the PDF page align vertically. Choose On or Off. Background Removal. Whitens nearly white areas of grayscale and color input not black-and-white input. Then, Off or Low should produce good results. If scanning off-white paper or newsprint, use Medium or High to clean up the page.
Removes halftone dot structure, which can reduce JPEG compression, cause moire patterns, and make text difficult to recognize.
Suitable for —dpi grayscale or RGB input or, for Adaptive Compression , —dpi black-and-white input. The On setting recommended applies the filter for dpi or higher grayscale and RGB input. Select Off when scanning a page with no pictures or filled areas, or when scanning at a resolution higher than the effective range.
Text Sharpening. Sharpens the text of the scanned PDF file. The default value is low and suitable for most documents. Increase it if the quality of the printed document is low and the text is unclear.
By default the OCR language is picked from default locale. To change the language, click Edit and choose a different language. Acrobat scanning accepts images between 10 dpi and dpi. Also, input resolution higher than dpi is downsampled to dpi or lower.
Lossless compressions can only be applied to monochrome images. To apply lossless compression to a scanned image, select one of these options under the Optimization Options in the Optimize Scanned PDF dialog box: If this image is appended to a PDF document, and you save the file using the Save option, the scanned image remains uncompressed. For most pages, black-and-white scanning at dpi produces text best suited for conversion.
At dpi, OCR accuracy is slightly lower, and more font-recognition errors occur; at dpi and higher resolution, processing slows, and compressed pages are bigger.
If a page has many unrecognized words or small text 9 points or smaller , try scanning at a higher resolution. Scan in black and white whenever possible. When Recognize Text Using OCR is disabled, full to dpi resolution range may be used, but the recommended resolution is 72 and higher dpi. For Adaptive Compression , dpi is recommended for grayscale or RGB input, or dpi for black-and-white input. Your system may require 50 MB of virtual memory or more to scan the image.
At dpi, both scanning and processing typically are about four times slower than at dpi. Avoid dithering or halftone scanner settings. These settings can improve the appearance of photographs, but they make it difficult to recognize text. If your scanner has the color-filtering capability, consider using a filter or lamp that drops out the background color. If your scanner has a manual brightness control, adjust it so that characters are clean and well-formed.
If characters are touching, use a higher brighter setting. If characters are separated, use a lower darker setting. You can use Acrobat to recognize text in previously scanned documents that have already been converted to PDF.
Scanning at dpi produces the best text for conversion. At dpi, OCR accuracy is slightly lower. Optionally, click Settings to open the Recognize Text dialog box, and specify the options as needed. When you are finished selecting file settings, click OK. Click OK again to close the Customize window.

My only grievance, if you can call it that, is the automation of the scan functionality This means that you might have scans of the same document by the time you have everything perfectly straight, positioned, and in focus.
Overall, this is a fantastic app, and I look forward to new features as they come.
Incredibly handy, effective, and helpful. With this app on the go, you could literally work from the tailgate of your truck if you had to. If you can hold your tablet or phone steady for pictures, then you can scan with this.
