    In need of scanning quite a few pages to pdf and without the scanning software that came with my printer and with a dead fax machine, I came up with the following fairly painless method. Noting here for future use:

    Scan each page of the document via the command line cmdTwain:
    “\Program Files\CmdTwain\cmdtwain.exe” page1.jpg

    Convert the scanned jpg’s to a single pdf using ImageMagick:
    “\Program Files\ImageMagick-6.4.0-Q16\convert.exe” -adjoin page*.jpg someDocument.pdf

    1. Hi Sergey,

      The comment I posted on 30 July 2014 has the text of the article. I don’t think there was a download link in it.

      ImageMagick can be found at http://www.imagemagick.org. The best download link seems to be: http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php

      As easier approach is to use Jpg2pdf which was built specially to convert scanned images to a PDF file.

      The ability to scan directly to PDF will be present in an upcoming release of CmdTwain.
