Fortunately my Canon printer comes with a function that can automatically convert scanned documents and images into PDF files. But not all printers have this luxury. If you use one of those printers, then you know the pain of first scanning a document and then converting it into a PDF file using a third party tool. But WinScan2PDF can save you from all this trouble because it has the functionality to scan any document or image straight into a PDF format file.
