Author Topic: uploading pdf  (Read 187 times)

hi
When I scan pictures or documents to my pc they end up in PDF format. (can't seem to do it different as I scan from my workplace)
It appears PDF can't be uploaded into geneanet or am I doing something wrong? I have managed to upload one picture that was not a PDF format so I think I am doing something right but why can't or won't PDF work?
Is there a way to upload PDF format?
Your help will be appreciated.
Kind Regards
Mariette

No, you can't upload PDF files. You must convert your pictures in jpg file format.

If you can't change your scanner options, I suggest that you try some free online converter:
- http://pdf2jpg.net/
- http://www.convertpdftoimage.com/
- etc.

Might I suggest that you do offer the option to upload documents in PDF version? For one thing the quality is much better at a much lower file size for your servers. For another thing, I have a LOT of documents, such as Death Certificates and wills which I could upload to the archive but it's too much work to convert them to an image file one by one. So I don't upload them.
