PDFScanner has been created with one simple task in mind: scanning and archiving documents as quick and easy as possible, and making them findable with Spotlight search. There are many applications for OS X that allow scanning of images or text. Most of them are however complex, slow or not really suited for scanning documents or letters.

When performing OCR, PDFScanner adds the recognized text directly to the scanned image as an invisible layer, so the text can be selected and copied just like in other PDF files.

  • Support for all scanners that are supported by the OS X Image Capture

What's New

Updated for macOS Sierra
Default save folder selection
Many bugfixes and under the hood improvements

Please note: Because of driver compatibility problems on Sierra, 1.11.2 enables the "Image Capture Compatibility mode" by default. This makes PDFScanner behave exactly like Image Capture but may lead to slightly larger PDF files. You can disable this mode in the Preferences.


  • OS X 10.10 or later
