Investing in Efficiency: Why Adobe Acrobat Pro is Worth It for OCR
Additionally, I suggest using Adobe Acrobat Pro for processing the scanned PDF files, specifically utilizing the editable text and images feature for better quality and smaller file sizes.
Optimizing Scan Quality and File Size: Adobe Acrobat Pro’s Editable Text and Images Feature
I’ll explain that Adobe Acrobat Pro’s editable text and images function not only performs traditional OCR but also replaces text images with fonts, resulting in smaller file sizes and better-looking documents. While Adobe Acrobat Pro is not free, I believe it’s worth the investment for this project. By using this software for OCR and saving the processed files, you can greatly reduce the size of your digitized documents while maintaining quality.
Streamlining the Process: My Recommendations for Effective Digitization
Overall, I emphasize the importance of using efficient scanning and processing tools to digitize books and other materials effectively. I recommend using the Epson ES 200 scanner, NAPS2 software for scanning, and Adobe Acrobat Pro with editable text and images for processing to create high-quality digital copies of physical materials.
