I'm trying to digitize a couple of books for my family. Most of them look good but I had some problems with one book. Some pages came out really skewed. Is there a way to fix this?

Here are some sample pages, so you know what I'm talking about:

    Use Acrobat's "Optimize Scanned PDF".
    For Acrobat 9 Pro use Document > Optimize Scanned PDF
    Set "Deskew" to automatic.


    Acrobat X has a similar feature.

    Be well...

    I tried this with Acrobat X Pro and document did not deskew.  Tried with Acrobat 8 on a different workstation (same document) and worked fine.  This is not a newly scanned document.  It is a mechanical fax received as PDF with an online fax server.
