Scanning to PDF is really just putting the image in a PDF wrapper.
What you want to do is scan it to a TIFF format (if it's allowed in the printer settings, if not then jpg).
Open that in Photoshop.
Use the Measure Tool to draw a line along a line that should be straight.
Then use the Crop Tool to crop the image.
You can go to
But really there's no reason to scan it to a PDF format. It's just an image inside a PDF.
Thank you … I’ll try.
also check the scanners auto straighten options/prefs
My Brother MFC-8660Dn (about 5 years old) will scan to IMAGE, OCR, EMAIL, or FILE?
I'm thinking I need a new scanner?
No you must be able to configure that (to tiff) as a preference... its Not the scanner its the scanning software/driver
Ps: Try posting this in Acrobat forum too.
Scan to image.
Thanks to both of you. I know enough to be helpful, but not intuitive. Both of your suggestions
lead me to that 'ahhh' moment.
You could also try the OCR feature of Acrobat assuming the scanned image has text. It usually straightens the pages before processing for OCR.
Depending on how clear the text is, you gain selectable text from the image, too.
You can then run the crop on the page(s)
