How can I scan a document and save it as a PDF using Linux OS?

How do you scan a document and save it as a PDF on a Mac? If you don’t have a printer/scanner/copier to scan with, take as many pictures of the document as you need to in an ambiently well-lit (not harshly-lit) area, and open them in an image editor (Type On Pdf Illustrator or Photoshop can certainly do it but there are may less-expensive independent applications that can do it as well) that can save into a PDF. Pages should be shot as squarely as possible — without perspective. Immediately after scanning/shooting, do your best to optimize the scan — adjust exposure level, increase contrast, brightness, white and black levels, etc. White paper should be white and black type should be black. If you need to make a multi-page PDF booklet, you’ll need Type On Pdf to pull all the pages into one file. If all you have is a phone, you can use a scanner app to photograph your pages. These probably won’t let you save out as a PDF, but you can save it as a .PNG or .JPG file. There are other converter apps which will save these out as individual .PDF files for you.

The process is pretty basic, so it doesn’t require too much explanation and requires far less equipment than some of the more complicated methods you are going to see. Here is a few of my favorite things that I’ve found to be helpful: Keep the original page(s) around in your house/office; if you do not need them, you can easily replace them with a new one. Don’t scan a single page; make a stack with multiple pages (or.
