@Emka - The first item under OPTIONS look like you can set the utility to delete the jpgs when you exit the program. I have never been very sure the program actually does what it says, so I simply use the second item in OPTIONS to check and delete as necessary. Periodically I use the jpg instead the pdf so I actually find this useful. Bottom line is that I wish the author would clean all this up a bit more, but I find the utility so useful (use it every day almost) that I am prepared to work around the idiosyncrasies.

@MIKLO & _philippe: It now seems possible to select a folder for temporary files, so you can change the default location in AppData to the app's folder for example.

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.

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.
