Question about HP Officejet J5780 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

How do you scan to a file?

I need to save my scanned images as .jpg files, .gif files, .pdf files, or any combination of the three. I have an HP Officejet J5780 All-in-one. It keeps wanting to make a copy, not copy to files. I called HP support and they want to charge me $35.00 to help me. Jeeeeeez.

If I need to send some papers to some other place and it says I cant it want go through because it needs to be changed to gif image or pdf or jpg so what do i do how do i change this thanks


You will need a scanner or a printer with a scan function. When you scan you can choose what format you want to save it as.

Gif and jpg are images that can be opened with any graphics program. Pdf files require Adobe Reader to open them.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Cant save a scanned document as a pdf


You have to make sure your telling your scanner what your scanning. Most often it defaults as a mixed image meaning text and image. You have to tell it to scan text only and then see what options you have. If this doesnt help then do as i stated above choosing text only and save to computer as a microsoft word document. Now make sure you have latest Acrobat reader 9.0 installed and now with your word document open in top left File button there should be an option to convert to pdf format. I hope this helps and good luck

Scanning docs & size of pdf files on Mac w/HP l7680 All-in-one


The scanner produces a "picture" of the document, much as if you laid it flat on a table and took a picture of it with your digital camera. If you did this, your .jpg from the camera would be several hundred K at a minimum - comparable to the file size off the scanner. That's why the file is so big, it contains a picture and not text data - even though it's still a .jpg file.
If you reduce the scan resolution you will save space, but at the expense of legibility of the document image. To get it down to the smallest possible size, you will need to run the scanned image through OCR ( Optical Character Recognition ) into a Word document for example, and then print it out to a .pdf file. If you have a clean source document with few graphics this isn't as difficult as it may seem. Microsoft Office has an excellent OCR process known as Document Imaging. You need to carefully proof read the result but with a clean input Document Imaging is amazingly accurate in Office 2007.
In short, there is no easy solution to your problem.

Scanned files are too big


Change the file format its saving in. different formats have different compression rations. Jpg images are smaller than bmp images. simply by changing it to jpg it will be 20 times smaller. To do this when click save and the save image box appers, in the format type select jpg or gif or what ever is avilable. Play around to see what gives you the smallest size. You can also use software like Photoshop, paint, and other image editors to change the format its being saved in.
