Saving scans as PDF
The typical output format for scanned files is TIFF. While this is the default, many users prefer to work with PDF files, due to the convenience of the sharing and modification opportunities offered by this format. PDF, which stands for Portable Document Format, is known for its universality. In order to save scanned documents as PDF files, you would need to use special software designed for that purpose.
Considerations for bulk scanning
If you scan files in bulk, then it may be useful to take into account some special considerations associated with scanning for you. For example, you need a conversion program that can handle large volumes at high speed. Additionally, think about issues that may arise afterward, and whether the files will take up a great deal of space, meaning that they will benefit from compression.
