Scanned documents are basically a pictorial representation of documents of digital media. As a result, a scanned document can be presented in various forms. The most common ways a scanned document can be stored are as a picture and as a PDF document.
An image can come in different types, qualities, and sizes. Some of the most used image types are GIF, JPEG, PNG, and TIFF. In most cases, users can decide the type of image during the process of scanning the document.
Likewise, a user can decide to have a document scanned as a PDF. A PDF file is one of the most popularly used documents at the moment. Many organizations and individuals prefer to use this type of file as it is more convenient and professional-looking. Nonetheless, a document scanned as a PDF still contains pictures. When the physical document is scanned, the images are embedded into the PDF file.
