No. You need to scan then convert the .tif into a .pdf. There are many good converters around, some of them freeware or costing around $30 or as shareware. You could do worse than starting your search at the url below.
Good Luck.

A full feature software and driver package for Windows 7 is not available for your product. However, the Windows 7 operating system installed on your computer contains a basic driver solution for your product. With the basic driver, some of the advanced product features are not available. You can print from a software program, and import and view images on a memory card, if your product has a memory card slot. With this basic driver, the buttons on the product do not function and some of the advanced product features are not available. How to Scan a Document in Windows 7 By Greg Harvey The Windows Fax and Scan utility enables you to scan documents and pictures. Before you can scan documents and pictures, you must have a scanner installed on your computer. Your scanner must be listed in the Devices section of the Devices and Printers Control Panel window.

To check to see if your scanner is properly installed, open the Device Stage. Choose Start?Devices and Printers. If Windows doesn't automatically find your scanner, you can manually add it in the Devices and Printers window by clicking the Add a Device button in the toolbar and following the wizard's commands.

  1. Choose Start?All Programs?Windows Fax and Scan.

    Windows 7 opens the Windows Fax and Scan window.

  2. Click the Scan button in the Navigation pane, then click the New Scan button on the toolbar.

    The New Scan dialog box for your scanner opens.

  3. Use the settings on the right to describe your scan.

    By letting the computer know what you're scanning, its color profile, and the type of file you plan to create, you enable Windows Fax and Scan to create the highest quality scan.

  4. Click the Preview button to see what your document will look like.

    Make any last minute changes.

  5. If you're happy with the preview, click the Scan button.

    Windows scans the document and presents you with an image of your document.

  6. Click the Save As button and complete the necessary information.

    Enter the filename, the type of graphics file you want saved, and then click the Save button.

To automatically forward the document you've just scanned as an attachment to a new fax message, click the Forward as Fax button.

The scan feature in the Windows Fax and Scan utility is set primarily to scan text documents. If you want to scan a photograph or other graphic, you're better off doing that directly within the Windows Live Photo Gallery.

Scan Docs in pdf


Unless you have Adobe Pro, there's another way to accomplish this task. Scan the document into Word or Open Office Writer (open office is a free download) Once the document is scanned, Click on File and select Publish to PDF.

I want to scan a form and save it, and be able to fill in the blanks later. I can save it as a pdf document, but can't edit it.


When you scan it, the original manufacurer's software should allow you to save it as a Word document or some other editable format. PDF, JPG, TIF, and other image formats probably won't work.

I am not computer literate and need help. can you explain to me step by step how to scan and e-mail documents. my e-mail address: jwaples60450@hotmail.com please. Thank you


First turn on the computer, after it loads up plug the scanner into the computer, turn it on, and it should prompt you to install a driver for the scanner. Follow the directions on screen and it will install it for you. After that, it might require a reboot of the system, if so do so. If not make sure the scanner is powered on and then put the document in the scanner and run the program that was installed for the scanner and it should scan for you, or if the scanner has a button that says scan and it should put it in a file on your computer, possibly in the MY DOCUMENTS folder. Open your email and compose new mail and then when your ready to put the file in, click the ATTACHMENTS button and find the file and click attach, and then send. There you just scanned and sent your first file VIA email. Congratulations. Any further questions please let me know.
