Looking for: Scan and convert to PDF, but simple
« on: June 02, 2009, 09:27:03 AM »
I am trying to find a very very very (did I mention it has to be very?) easy to use application that will make it possible to scan pages, converting them to a PDF file, and send that by e-mail.

I know it's easy enough to do the steps one by one, but the thing is it has to be a "one-click, anybody can do it" kind of thing.

Any suggestions or experiences?

I havent tried this:

Scan2pdf - donationware - at http://www.koma-code...;id=39&Itemid=82

they have a portable version so might be easy to try out . .

well I had reson to try this out myself tonight and it's far from single click and there's no options to email - but it looks good for creating multi-page PDFs using scanner or importing images. Very basic but works well at what it does (no resizing or cropping of images.)

This may work, or be a lot of work.
From makeuseof.com.

It looks interesting and for a scanner.
May have to convert whatever it outputs to pdf.
I haven't tried it yet.
