Convert scans or images of documents into searchable, editable PDF files, and adjust the quality of the resulting file.
In Acrobat DC, select Scan & OCR from the Tools center or pane.
Select a file. This file could be a photo of a document, or an already scanned file created using a scanner or the Adobe Scan mobile app. Or you can scan a document to create a new file using a connected scanner.
To enhance the document, choose which type of file you opened, a Scanned Document or a Camera Image. Click Enhance to clean up the image.
Acrobat automatically recognizes text from scanned documents. To manually recognize text on image files select Recognize Text. The file is now a searchable, editable PDF file.
