Editing a PDF image is a very difficult task. Working with PDF images is getting more frequent than ever before. For instance, what if you get a research report with charts and images, and your boss asks you to correct numbers? Well, in that case, a software with OCR technology can greatly help. >> How to ocr a pdf
I have had this problem numerous times, and in lack of adequate tools; I would always look for a substitute. Not anymore. While OCR is a promising way to fix it; there weren’t many tools that pull it off well. The good news is, there are good tools, that makes editing the pdf images easy.
Why use PDF to OCR and what can you do using OCR?
Now, before we go any further, let us understand what OCR is. Essentially, OCR is a technology that lets you edits texts, make changes to pictures, change size of the fonts, modify color etc. Let me cite two capabilities of OCR that makes it essential for you to use it.
Edit Scanned PDF: This is by far the most important feature of the software. PDF, right from its inception, is so difficult to handle, that it becomes impossible to edit the file. With this software, it first changes the format to OCR and then lets the user edit it. Later, it lets the user to edit the document, and convert it in the format of their choice. The entire process is very swift and generally there is no lag in working with the same.
Batch Conversion: While the first quality only focuses on what the app can do qualitywise, this one is more about the efficiency of the process. Here, for instance, one user can go ahead and set up batch conversions.
In plain english, it essentially means being able to convert the files on the go. So with a good OCR tool, you can set up multiple files to convert from one format to another. This is handy, especially if you are working on a long list of files, or are seeking to covert the same file in different formats.
