Hi there I what to upload some manuals for new Holland and ariens items. However not sure how to scan items into adobe pdf. I have the adobe reader dc software and a scanner. If I scan a page with scanner I can scan as a jpg, bmp, png or tif image. Am I missing something? Thanks Mustangman

If your scanner doesn't scan directly to PDF, it's a bit of a pain to do. But it can be done if you have Office type of software. I use Open Office, you have to have the extra plugin for pdf's. Basically scan the pages to a file as .jpg, then paste into a text document. Save it with the name.doc, then save as a pdf.

I print the .jpg file to a PDF using a free software called PRIMO PDF. It creates a PDF from a JPG

If you have a smart phone, and patience you can take multiple high quality photos. Email yourself the photos and put them into a single PDF.

 

You can get an app like Jotnot, and it will automatically turn it into a pdf from the phone.

 

Just a thought.

For a pdf of Ariens manuals, they can be gotten from Ariens website and uploaded here.
