Remember, a few days back I wrote about a software that lets you scan multiple pages of a document and then converts it into a PDF file. The biggest drawback is that it only worked with ADF(Automatic Document Feed) Scanners, and that too with a limited number of brands only. I wondered if there is a software, which we can use to scan multiple pages using a standard scanner and then it automatically converts them into a single PDF file. It turns out there is and its called VueScan.
It not only scans documents and converts them into a PDF file, it can also convert your scanner into a photocopier machine. Whether you want to batch scan family photos or simply want to save an image, this tool does the job. You will find the details of few common tasks here.
You can customize multiple options such as Size, Quality, Preview and Scan Resolution, Rotation, Cropping, Filtering and much more. Instead of manually having to name the scanned images one by one, you can simple add ‘+’ next to any name and it will automatically add numbers next to it. It is a cross platform tool that works on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
The only downside is that it’s not free, but I believe it is worth paying for such a software(the developer has been working behind this tool for the last one decade). There are two versions available, Standard and Professional, the standard version cost approx $40 while the professional version cost $80.
The good news is that we have 5 professional licenses to give away to our readers($400 worth of licenses). If you want one license for free, simply leave a comment explaining why you might need this tool for or what are you planning to do with it. While leaving a comment make sure to write your email address too, it will be used for contacting in case you win. Good Luck!
Update: This offer has officially ended, all 5 winners will be contacted via email shortly and the developer will himself send the professional license. Thanks to everyone for leaving a comment, this shows the community at AddictiveTips is alive and kicking. 🙂
