FineReader is an optical character recognition application, developed by ABBYY. It allows users to convert their image documents into editable electronic formats, preserving and converting over text and photos with minimal errors.
However, if you do not need to perform optical character recognition, and just need to move your image into a document, you are better off copy-pasting the document directly.
When you open FineReader, you should be prompted to perform a New Task. This guide will cover the Quick Conversion options.
Once you have selected your Task, you will be prompted to select the image that you wish to convert.
After the image has been converted, you will be prompted to name and save the editable document that you selected earlier.
After having performed a Quick Conversion, you can still export additional documents using your image, with options to make some modifications:
Once you have analyzed a document, you can also export into another type of editable electronic document. You should pick the format that best serves your purposes.
Word Document Format
FineReader offers an image editor if you need to make any modifications to your image. If FineReader was unable to read most of a document, we recommend that users modify the brightness and contrast to make the text more visible. Users can rotate the page of it isn’t aligned correctly. And users can also crop out specific portions of their image if they do not need everything presented.
If FineReader detects any issues with your image, it will inform you in the errors panel. The error panel can be found on the left of the document, under the triangle warning symbol.
