Create multi-page PDF from scanned images

Post by poleras » Tue Oct 30, 2018 1:48 pm

Hi, is there a way to create a multi-page pdf from opened images? I need this because I'm getting the images from the scanner, and i don´t want/need to save them first. Thanks in advance!

Yes, in the file browser, but I can't give you the exact menu item immediately as I don't have XnView Classic installed on this computer.

In XnView MP it's Create > Multi-page file... which should be a guide.

Hi cday, yes, I know that, but (correct me if I'm wrong) for a file to appear in the browser, it should´ve been saved first, which is precisely what I'm trying to avoid. I just want to scan several images and generate the multi-page directly from there, without having to save each scan previously

I'm not immediately sure what you mean by opened images.

If your scanner software doesn't provide an option to scan to a multi-page file, you could look at scanning using the XnView [Classic or MP] TWAIN facility, but I think that will probably just open the usual scanner interface. I don't have a scanner easily accessible to look.

My mistake, what I tried to say was images that are not saved yet (ie, an image pasted from the clipboard, or, in this case, acquired from a scanner) In those cases, images in every tab exist only in memory, and I want to make a multi-page from there, without having to save them first. Anyhow, I found a possible solution using the "acquire into..." option which has a checkbox to create a multi-page pdf. I'll try it asap, I think that should work for me.

Excellent, I couldn't have a look myself as it needs a scanner attached. :D
