As the situation with COVID-19 unfolds, ORPALIS is offering a free subscription of PaperScan Pro Scanning Software valid until April 2021, for everyone.
PaperScan Scanner Software is a powerful TWAIN & WIA scanning application centered on one idea: making document acquisition an unparalleled easy task for anyone.
Use PaperScan to import any image/PDF files, arrange them in any imaginable single-page/multi-page configuration, perform a wide range of image adjustments and enhancements, annotate them with sticky notes, rubber stamps, highlighter or arrows and save your work in various file formats including JPEG, TIFF, PDF and JBIG2. PaperScan is simply universal while most of the scanning applications are dedicated to one scanner or one protocol.
Update: This offer has ended, but you may like NAPS2 Scanning Software.
Years ago you used a photocopier, more recently scanners became available, firstly on their own and then incorporated into printers. You could also get portable scanners, where the document to be scanned is drawn through the device (I’ve still got one somewhere). But then came along the smartphone.
It’s so easy to snap a document on your mobile these days, and there’s also some great scanning apps available that add a myriad of features. One that I use practically every day is Microsoft Office Lens, usually sending the scanned image straight into Evernote (my note-taking app of choice that is multi-platform and synchronises across all devices). Why not check it out? It’s free, by the way.
Please note: Since posting this, the app has been included in the new Microsoft Office Mobile App which combines all the individual office apps into one.
