amgalitz 0 Posted November 4, 2009 Share Posted November 4, 2009 I've just got a Fujitsu scansnap s300 for use with evernote mainly. I've reverted to the 3.1EN since the 3.5 has too many issues for not much benefit. My wife and I both have premium accounts. I've been searching and reading but given the changing landscape of evernote's abilities to search for text in images I ask what are the pros and cons of scanning items in jpg vs pdf formats. I would prefer be able to rely on EN finding words in the image without having to scan with ocr on in the scansnap software and just let the evernote server ocr work on the image. This suggests jpg as a better approach since it seems EN has a problem doing OCR in images within PDF (is this a 3.1 vs 3.5 issue?). However multipage documents then are more time consuming to process as each jpg becomes its own note. I've also noted that copying a jpg into an EN note which already has a jpg seems at time to cause a much larger increase in the note size than just adding the bytes from the copied jpg (quite dramatically a few times). I'm interested in automating the input of my receipts, certification/licenses, continuing medical education certificates, photos of the manufacturer plates on my equipment etc.I tried searching but jpg and pdf are too small to use as terms so if this has been well discussed, thanks to point me at the thread.cheers, and TIA Link to comment
