hello!

I use the scanner software that the scanner was shipped with, but it too much verbose, it asks me to click a button in order to create a pdf, after I have scanned a page (while it should just do it automatically) etc

I have used AHK to try to automate it, without much success, because its GUI is troublesome

anyway, is there a software to replace it, but fully compatible, without interfering with scanning quality and speed, but more customizable and handy than this one?

thanks!

Hi kalos - if you mean scanning to PDF - I use both/either Scan2PDF or WinScan2PDF.

They are perhaps not the best but simple and rapid.

I need the proper term to search for such software, or better, a webpage with a comparison of them

Old thread (that I started) link here:
Software for use with scanner?
- might still give you a couple of ideas of the kinds of software that is on offer e.g. PaperPort which is about scanning *and* document management, but costs accordingly. But lots of other small/smaller softwares. I didnt find anything I was very happy with but I had different requiremants to you.

I am basically interested in as solution that will scan the paper and save it as pdf in a standard specific folder, with just clicking the scan button, without any questions, GUIs, dialog boxes, confirmations, etc

(in case filename already exists, just rename)

thanks

I've downloaded iCopy from source forge but think that's more aimed at making a photocopier of your scanner
http://graphicssoft.about...A//icopy.sourceforge.net/

iCopy at sourceforge.net
iCopy, as mentioned by Tomos, has a command line interface and it can write directly to a pdf "printer" or file.
It may be able to do what you want if the print dialog is suppressed.

Can I suggest my Screenshot Captor tool -- though primarily for screenshot taking, has a very straightforward minimal interaction Scanning feature set that includes save-to-pdf in predefined folder.

You can watch a video demonstrating the Scanning features in Screenshot Captor here: http://www.donationcoder....sts/dc/3ds/sc13/sc13.html

I think I need something specific:

I want to click the scan button and display a list of icons that will execute specific procedures, without any more clicks:

- scan, split to pages and save to predefined folder
- scan and email to predefined email
- scan and watermark
etc

any idea?
:/
