Scanning Documents (PC)

To scan documents on the Multimedia Workstations in Gelardin New Media Center, use Adobe Acrobat X, the PDF creator on our computers. This will fulfill most of your scanning needs.

1. Place your item to be scanned facedown in the scanner. Close the scanner.

2. Double-click on the Adobe Acrobat X icon on the desktop.

3. In the upper-left hand corner you see a yellow sunburst icon and the word Create. Click Create and the hover over PDF from Scanner, which will lead you to different choices for scanning. Pick which is appropriate for your scan.

Use grayscale for documents that are black and white. Scanning this way will not allow you to edit text.
