Free Scan to PDF is a program with a pretty self-explanatory name - it allows you to scan your documents and images directly to the PDF format. It can be seamlessly handled by all types of users, regardless of their experience level.

The interface of the application is based on a standard window with an well-organized layout, where you can configure several settings before proceeding with the scan procedure.

Therefore, you can select the paper size and compression method. It is possible to preview the document in the main application window after scanning it, as well as to zoom and rotate the page.

Additional features of Free Scan to PDF let you apply a digital signature in order to protect the integrity of your files, as well as add a password to them. The new PDF file can be saved to the hard drive by specifying the output directory and file name, or directly sent via email.

The utility runs on a low-to-moderate quantity of CPU and system memory, so it shouldn't affect the computer's overall performance. It finishes a scan job rapidly and delivers PDFs with a good quality concerning the text layout, images and other graphical elements.

We have not encountered any problems throughout our evaluation; the app did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. On the other hand, you cannot customize program settings, such as minimizing it to the system tray area or making it automatically open the output file after scanning. Nevertheless, thanks to its intuitive layout and options, Free Scan to PDF should please the entire audience.
