Options for working with scanned documents
Scanning documents is a great way to preserve files in electronic form instead of relying on physical records. One of the most important benefits of digital files is the ease with which they can be shared. Once a document is scanned, you can archive it in a digital database, share it via email, or upload it to the Internet. These are only a few of the options that you have for scanned documents.
Putting scanned documents online
If you want to put a scanned document online, you need to get it in a format that is convenient for sharing. In order to do this, you can convert the original scanned file into PDF, which is a universal format that can be opened on virtually any computer. In addition, you should probably compress the file so that it is smaller and easer to work with, and ideally OCR it to make it text-searchable.
