Subject description: Scan to jpg then convert to pdf with PeasyPDF
 

G'day rcrsn51,

Thanks for the reply to my query.

I'll try a few recipe scans and see how the conversions look.

I expect, to hold good definition in case of the need to print-on-paper as well as for the pdf itself, the jpg should be of highish resolution.
Which is OK as I should treat the jpg as a temp file to be deleted once the pdf is as desired.

Will report any problems.

David S.

PostPosted: Mon 19 Mar 2018, 18:58    Post subject: Landscape pdf via scanned jpg [SOLVED]  

G'day rcrsn51,

I've done one test which worked as you suggested (scanned as hi-res jpg, rotated, then pdf-ed to give landscape pdf in default pdf viewer).

I'm on cooking duty today Rolling Eyes so will try scanning some more recipes to better confirm the process, and will update, provided no one gets poisoned Shocked .

Thanks for your help.

David S.

Addendum 1:
Just scanned six recipe double-sided pages into pairs of jpg files, which I rotated with Peasy JPG resizer (scaled 100%, rotated + or - 90 degrees to get correct orientation) (examples as screenshots).
Then with PeasyPDFconverter converted each PEASYSCALE jpg to pdf and finally joined these pairs of pdfs into single pdfs (screenshot shows multiple windows open while doing the transformations which went very quickly).
Cannot post a finished pdf example as Forum won't accept pdf format - but all open in landscape in the default pdf viewer.

Addendum2: But I can post a screenshot (it's now the first screenshot) of the landscape-multipage recipe pdf in a Pup pdf viewer (example in BionicAlpha+6)

PeasyPDF isn't working for me. When I try to extract PDFs into images, no images actually appear. When I try to extract into PDFs, the PDFs are just blank pages. What's causing this?

Identify your Puppy version.

Precise 5.7.1. I'm only having trouble with one PDF though. Other ones seem to work fine. Is there something that would cause it to not work with a certain file?

This is probably a problem with the old version of Ghostscript in Precise. Try a newer Puppy.
