How about making network scanners visible? Lots of AIO network printers around.

Can someone tell me where the .jpg images are left behind? I want to delete them but am unable to find them. Thanks.

Supports JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF and TIFF file formats.

Couldn't download from the site; it gives a 404 error when the download starts. Softpedia has a mirror: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Office-tools/PDF/i2pdf.shtml

This is an easy print-to-PDF tool for programs like PowerPoint and LibreOffice Impress that can export their content to a page-per-image. I've also been using it a lot lately to avoid the built-in JPEG-based compression that many other export tools integrate.

Scan2PDF helps you scan paper documents directly into PDF files. It has a non-interactive option so that you can bypass the scanner driver interface during scanning. In addition, you can change the order of scanned images, as well as rotate and delete them.

IrfanView does a better job and produces much smaller pdfs.

Seems to be an old program, but does a wonderful job and was exactly what I needed.

I get the best pdf scan output using IrfanView: smallest pdf file size and highest font quality (no OCR, obviously).
What is your experience?

It seems you have to complete a survey or download games before you can download the application...:-(

Emka on 2011-12-24 21:01

According to the screenshots, at least v1.5 is out.

Downloaded this to try exporting the pages of a PDF file to image files. It didn't work at all, just returned an unhelpful "failure" message.

RecRedDot on 2012-04-06 15:54

The "About PtoBMP" window says it will extract BMP/JPG from PDF files 'created by BtoPDF' (ONLY!!!); this should be clearly described in Synopsys to avoid frustracting loss of time attempting extraction of JPG from PDF files not created with this utility.

Disappointing, this app does not extract jpg images from pdf files.
But this one does: http://tcpdiag.dl.sourceforge.net/project/pdftojpg/pdftojpg/pdf_to_jpg_1a/PDF_to_JPG_exe.zip
It is a command line application (therefore it does not qualify according to portablefreeware) very easy to use (just pass the name of the pdf file as an argument, and all the images are extracted in a folder created and located in the folder where you launch the app). From what I have tested, the images are extracted with their original resolution.
