Email scanned docs

I hooked up the scanner and am able to scan and email docs as a jpg attachment. How can I get the scanner to scan and email in pdf format.

I thought it was using the front buttons, but haven't been able to get it working.

You don't. Scanners save everything as a Picture. Test is not text, it is a combination of thousands of dots that make up a picture. It takes an OCR and very complicated software to read text from a picture.

I2400 scan to email doesn't work


You must have an email program like Outlook installed on your computer. When scan to email is selected it simply opens whatever defaul email client and attaches the scanned doc to a new email message.

Word docs sent as email attachments are arriving in my inbox as png files - useless. How do I change this please


.PNG stands for "Portable Network Graphics". Sounds like the sender may have scanned the document, and sent the scanned document to you? Scans will come out as either .png, .jpg, or .pdf formats.

If the file is a .png, you won't be able to edit in MS Word.

Another thing to check - Make sure when you are working on a Word Document, you are saving it as a .doc file.

  • Open MS Word Document
  • Do your editing
  • Click on the "Fille" button, and then select "save as" option
  • In the window that appears, next to the "save as type" wording click on the down triangle to see different formats to save. Select ".doc"
Bottom line... tell whomever is sending the emails with attachments, to send you the MS Word file, not a scanned file.

Brother HL-2280DW scanner won't attach to an email


If you are attempting to attach the file as a .jpg or the like (an image file), it is likely just too large for your email client. Try backing the resolution of the image wayyyy down, it should "bite" and attach if it isn't so large a file.

When I go to scan a doc to e-mail I get an error message that says (Not Set Up on PC) and I am unable to scan and send a doc via e=mail


Well as a workaround, as long as you can actually scan and save ... What you do is scan what you want, save it, then either save it as a PDF OR convert it to PDF After which you can then "Attach" it to any email you wish. I recommend PDF as most people have Adobe Reader.
If you can't scan to PDF, and it only saves as say JPEG, then get DoPDF http://www.dopdf.com/ To convert it from JPEG, JPG, BMP etc.

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.
