Scan Multiple Pages To A Single PDF File


NAPS PDF scannerIf you have a scanner (or a printer that includes one) then it can sometimes be useful to be able to scan 2 or more pages and save them into a single PDF file. If your scanner didn't come with such software as standard, or if you would rather use something a little less "bloatware", then check out a really nice free program called NAPS.

And yes, it does indeed stand for Not Another PDF Scanner. But it is. And it's very good. And assuming your scanner uses the industry-standard TWAIN method for communicating with your computer then it should work just fine.

While we're on the subject of acronyms, by the way, did you know that TWAIN stands for "technology without an interesting name"? Clever, eh?

Anyway, you can download NAPS from and the file is less than 2 MB. Web of Trust regards the download site as reputable. Just 1 out of 65 scanning engines on VirusTotal regard it as a potential problem, which is safe to assume it is definitely a false alarm.

I'm looking for something similar for Linux. If anybody has an idea...

Great find, thanks so much. I was impressed: clean interface, immediately hooked up with my wireless printer, OCR's a pdf - everything I need for teaching. I had gotten really frustrated with the proprietary software that was recommended with my printer. Heck, I even donated.

Does anybody knows how to get two separate pages (from a book eg) from one scan either with NAPS or with another software?

TWAIN. "Technology Without An Interesting Name". LoL! Who would have thought...

An excellent app (that is regularly updated); I've been using it for several years.

So far it does make the Scanner respond but Not clear on how to get individual responses onto one page

Thanks Rob. This looks promising :) Have to try it out.
