Saving images

ABBYY FineReader allows you to save both recognized text and page images, including scans.

To save one or more images:

  1. In the PAGES pane, select the pages you want to save.
  2. Click File > Save As > Page Images....
  3. In the dialog box that opens, select the disk and folder to save the file to.
  4. Select an image format you want to save the image in.
    If you want to save multiple pages to one file, choose the TIFF format and select Create a single file for all pages.
    For details, see Supported document formats.
  5. Specify a file name and click Save.

Tip. When saving in TIFF, you can select the image format and compression method. Image compression lets you decrease file size. Methods used for image compression differ by compression rate and data loss. Two factors define the choice of compression method: the resulting image quality and file size.

ABBYY FineReader offers the following compression methods:

  • ZIP No data loss occurs. This compression algorithm is used for images containing large sections in one color. For example, this compression algorithm is suitable for screenshots and black-and-white images.
  • JPEG This compression algorithm is used for gray and color images such as photos. This method provides high-density compression but causes data loss and results in poorer image quality (blurred outlines and poor color palette).
  • CCITT Group 4 No data loss occurs. This compression algorithm is commonly used for black-and-white images created in graphical programs or for scanned images. CCITT Group 4 is a commonly used compression method that is suitable for virtually all images.
  • Packbits No data loss occurs. This compression algorithm is used for black-and-white scans.
  • LZW No data loss occurs. This compression algorithm is used for graphic design and grayscale images.

When saving to image-only PDF, the program uses the parameters you specified on the Format Settings > PDF tab of the Options dialog box (click Tools > Options... to open this dialog box).
