Windows 7: Adding PDF to File Type output when scanning

04 Aug 2010   #1

Adding PDF to File Type output when scanning

In XP, when I had HP's scanner software installed, i used to be able to scan to a pdf. The scanner (and printer) uses the Windows7 interface to manage this hardware, but now I'm not able to scan to a PDF - only BMP, JPEG, TIFF & PNG. I have adobe reader installed.
Is there a process to allows the scanner software to save as (or scan to) PDF..?
Please see attached image.
Any assistance would be appreciated.

Windows 7 64 Bit

Have you looked at the HP web site ? I found a nice new Windows 7 64 bit version of the scanner software for my scanjet G3110 so I use it as I did before in XP. Also it supports my scanners features like the lamp for slide and negative scanning and the button for scan to PDF.
