Redacting PDF Scans

<< < (2/2)


It's fun to go back and look at old computer & electronics magazine articles just to see how things have changed over time. I kept some from the '70s and it's amazing.

No one has said it yet though, I'd be careful what you put on-line.  Especially if any of it is copyrighted.  While your intentions are good, too many people today try to make money the "new-fashioned" way... litigation and lawsuits. 
Just a thought.

FYI there's a PDF OCR tool on today...

not even OCRed. Does that make a difference?

Yes, that would make it easy, if it's converted to a .png or .jpg.
Use ScreenshotCapture's editor or another editor that can blackout sections.
Then to be sure, take a screenshot of the finished product.

That's a good recommendation.

If it is OCR'd, you can remove text in an editor like Adobe Illustrator, then save the result.

However, you still have the potential for metadata to be present, so cmpm's recommendation that you take a screenshot of the final product is excellent.
