    Converting to PDF

    I have a couple of scanned documents that I'd like to convert to PDF. Is there a trustworthy site online that would allow me to do this without much hassle?

    Yes, I have a scanner, it's an HP as well. I'll try to figure it out and see if I can go that route. Thanks Panton, knew I could count on ya.

    You can create 5 "real" PDFs for free on Adobe's site.

    There are a number of free PDF creation applications out there. I've used pdf995, cutePDF, and several others. Once you install one of these, you just print from any application to the PDF printer.

    I use CutePDF, works great and very easy to use.

    The 5 free at Adobe are good and pretty cheap for a subscription if you need more.

    Well, I don't think this all-in-one scanner has the PDF option. Glad I didn't buy it.

    I tried Adobe for the free PDF but I haven't received the confirmation email from them and it's been hours.

    I don't want to purchase any software or subscriptions, as I doubt I will ever need to convert more files. Unless just for fun.

    So, I just saved the files as jpg. from tiff. in Paint and sent them off. It worked.

    Thanks everyone.

    I just saw this, but if you need a .pdf from several images, PM/email me. Photoshop will do it easily, even multiple pages.
