Acrobat Capture 3.0

Every office has reams of paper scattered on desktops and buried deep within folders and file cabinets. Reaching this information shouldn’t require a major excavation. Now you can turn these printed documents into instantly accessible resources instead of artifacts awaiting rediscovery. Adobe® Acrobat® Capture® software makes it fast and easy to put paper documents to work online.

Preserve paper documents in perfect condition – electronically.
Acrobat Capture lets you convert paper documents to electronic files in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), which accurately reproduces the look and feel of the printed page, complete with fonts, graphics, formatting, and color, black-and-white, or grayscale images. Adobe PDF files are fully searchable, and you can add annotations, cross-document links, and bookmarks to help viewers navigate quickly using Adobe Acrobat 6.0 software.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Simply scan a printed page of any document – from contracts and spreadsheets to brochures, books, and magazines. (Acrobat Capture supports all of the leading scanners.) The image is sent straight to your desktop computer.
  2. In seconds, Acrobat Capture converts the scanned image to an electronic copy in Adobe PDF.
  3. Once your document is in Adobe PDF, it is completely platform-independent. Send it to a colleague across the hall or to thousands of people around the world – attached to an e-mail, made available across your company network, posted on your Web site, or distributed on a CD or through an internal document management system. Mac OS, Microsoft® Windows®, and UNIX® system users can all instantly access Adobe PDF files by using the freely distributed Adobe Reader® software. Acrobat 5.0 lets you view PDF files seamlessly from within Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer.
  4. Convert entire collections of documents, such as contracts, product documentation, and other corporate data, to easily accessible Adobe PDF archives. Documents can then be searched using popular Web index engines, document management systems, or Acrobat 5 via the Catalog tool.
