I want to scan magazine articles (combination of photos and text) and
convert them to pdf form. I don't want to scan the article as a graphic file
and convert the whole page into pdf. It simply makes too large a pdf file.
I'd like an application that takes a magazine article, converts text image
into a text data, converts the images into image data and creates a pdf. I
can do this the hard way: I can use an OCR program (omnipage) to convert the
text image into text data and then scan the photos one-by-one (photoshop)
into graphics files (jpeg, tiff, etc.) and then import all this into a page
layout program (quark) and then convert (distill) the file to pdf. That,
however, is a lot of work.
Isn't there some program that does this automatically?
