My company purchased a third party archive solution which included a scanner, software & server. The system produces archives in PDF form with OCR as well as meta data retrieval.
The problem is that the scanning is done in B&W so our archived pictures appear as a silhouette only.
I changed the scan type to 16-bit gray which improves the pictures but results in “unsupported color format” when it collected the tif file for conversion.
I thought perhaps they were only licensed to do B&W with their software so I scanned a file in 16-bit grayscale and fed it to Adobe as one of my 5 trial online conversions just to prove that it would work. It resulted in an error but did not elaborate.
So how would I go about scanning a file of about 10 printed text pages and a couple of pictures and then converting them to a PDF.
