Join Jim Rogers for an in-depth discussion in this video Converting images and scanning to PDF, part of Learning Bluebeam.
- Besides the plugins in the Bluebeam PDF printer…that allow us to convert different types of documents…to PDF format,…we can also convert images,…and use review to scan documents directly…into the PDF format.…Now, this scanning ability is really useful…when we have project team members…or maybe outside vendors…that send us hard copies of documents…that you want to store and access electronically,…and the ability to convert images is really great…for bringing all of those project photos…that you take with your phone…into the project file archives.…
First, let's take a look at scanning a document to PDF.…To open the scanning dialogue box,…I'm going to go to the top of the screen…and click on File.…I'm going to find the Create icon…and choose the down arrow,…and select From Scanner or Camera.…From there, any scanner that you have…attached to your computer should show up.…If you have a tablet with a camera,…that should also show up,…and give you a way to actually capture an image directly…as a PDF into Bluebeam.…So, for this example,…
