FileToPDF Command Line

What Does FileToPDF Do?

FileToPDF is a command line utility that uses the same image processing software technology we use in ScanToPDF alongside our Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to convert images (or image only PDF documents) into fully text searchable PDF files. This is the perfect tool for adding OCR data to existing scanned images or existing PDF files.

Automatic rotation of pages based on the text content
Remove blank pages from existing files during conversion so they do not get included in the finished PDF
Convert existing image files (TIFF,JPG,BMP,PNG etc) into Fully Text Searchable PDF files
Convert existing scanned PDF documents into Fully Text Searchable PDF files
Can be set-up as a scheduled task for automated processing 
Create text file output of OCR data and extract text from text PDF
Set PDF Dublin Core Metadata properties such as Author, Title, Subject and Keywords
Control PDF view preferences and security (user/master password)
Enable/Disable print
Easy to integrate, no programming skills required just simple command line switches

Great For Integrators!

It's also a great utility for simple integration into existing applications to enable existing images to be converted into fully text searchable PDF documents.

    I'm using the command line ScanToPDF. The installation and use takes some time to understand. It would be nice to have the software know where to find it components and not have to run in installation folder. The documentation is very light. Fortunately I had great help from George Harrison. I am very impressed with the OCR capabilities. It has captured words from FAX scans of old newspaper articles. 

    Were processing legal documents, contract documents, lease documents, manufacturing documents, transportation documents -- almost anything being achieved in our ECM system. We are using it as part of ECM process with Hyland Software's OnBase.

    Good Product, works as advertised. A little more help documentation on my product (FileToPDF commandline) would be helpful.
