Editors' Review

Advanced Scan to PDF Free creates high-quality PDFs from your scanner, camera, files, and other sources and saves them or sends them. It's designed as an easy means of sending digitally signed paper documents over the Internet using the PDF format, which is practically universal to business. But it's a good choice for anyone since it's easy to use, handles a wide range of image and document formats, works with most scanners and cameras, and creates accurate facsimiles of source material.

Advanced Scan to PDF Free's layout and ribbon toolbar take styling cues from Microsoft's Office suite, but the dark theme gives a unique look. The ribbon's tabs access PDF Preview, Scan to PDF/JPG to PDF, Tools, and Help (including a video tour). Under Tools, we could set and remove passwords, apply digital signatures, and view security information. PDF Preview is a full-featured tool for printing, zooming, rotating, and saving PDFs. The default tab -- Scan to PDF -- imports, scans, saves, and sends PDFs. It recognized and worked well with our scanner (and multiple drivers). We also imported images from our files.

Advanced Scan to PDF Free's large previews and toolbar-based size and compression settings made it easy to create and save high-quality documents from every source we tried. This tool is fast -- practically instantaneous with single documents and small batches. Clicking "Send PDF" attached the image to an e-mail message ready to address and send. Finished PDFs looked great in our usual viewer. Advanced Scan to PDF Free is attractive, easy to use, and produces top-quality results. It can serve businesses and individuals, and the cost is the same: free.

"Too much crapware"

December 13, 2014  |  By achitea

 |  Version: Advanced Scan to PDF Free 4.5.4

Pros

Nicely built, easy to use

Cons

All the stuff it wants to install !! Be careful. One got by me and I had to use SuperAntiSpyware to clean up. I would rather pay $10 and not have to worry about hidden agendas and Trojans. How so many people can rate this 5 stars is beyond me... I am a 30 year career IT guy

"Works well, but contains adware"

December 07, 2014  |  By AaronM1320

 |  Version: Advanced Scan to PDF Free 4.5.4

Pros

Simple to use interface and flexible application. Easily allows you to scan documents from a printer/scanner and add them to a pdf file.

Cons

Contains Open Candy adware. Slows down your PC.

Summary

I used it for a while on my old Windows XP machine because the scan to pdf option on the factory software for my HP printer disappeared for some reason. Was using Avast anti-virus on that machine (which I was overall very happy with) and for some reason it didn't catch the open candy install. PC seemed to be slow booting and opening web browser after that. Got a new Windows 7 pc and AVG anti-virus. Went to install this application and AVG immediately notified me of open candy install and removed it. I won't be using this anymore.

"Full of crapware and trojans"

October 14, 2014

 |  Version: Advanced Scan to PDF Free 4.5.4

Pros

None. Couldn't install because of all the extra crap.

Cons

I attempted to install and immediately got hit with requests to install a bunch of crapware. I skipped past all of this and got a Trojan downloaded that (fortunately) McAfee caught. This stuff should not be on CNET. It should be removed immediately.

Summary

Full of Trojans and crapware. Don't try it. CNET, please remove immediately.
