Follow this step-by-step tutorial to download CamScanner for PC. You can use CamScanner for PC on Windows 10/8/7 and macOS. Before you download this app, let me tell you a bit about it.
Applications like CamScanner are not less than a blessing. For those who don’t know, these apps are built to take the job of a real scanner with your phone or a laptop/desktop PC with a camera. You can transform any existing image to look like a scanned document.
Using the camera feature of this app, you can capture the pictures of documents on the go and transform them to look like a document scanned by an original scanner. The app offers 4-5 different effects which include a pure white effect, a colorful scan effect, black and white, and 2 others. You can choose the look of the document and transform it quickly.
CamScanner can combine multiple scanned images into a collage or you can also create a PDF to attach multiple pages together. Gone are the days when you used to take simple pictures of the documents. Now scan the documents and make them look more professional.
This is indeed a great tool, especially for those who have to maintain certain documents in their devices or have to share over WhatsApp/Facebook Messenger. I personally found this application the most useful when I had to travel across 4 countries. CamScanner helped me keep all my important travel documents on my phone and laptop.
Apart from digitazing your pictures, this app can also extract text from the images. It has the OCR feature. The OCR stands for optical character recognition. This feature makes the app scan a document and gives you the text to copy. CamScanner supports various formats including the PDF, JPEG, and PNG. This is a free tool for basic/personal use.
In case you want to use the CamScanner application as a primary document scanner application, you can attach it with your cloud drive account. In this case, the app will automatically upload all of your scans to the cloud storage. If you feel like you need access to all of its features, you can consider investing a tiny amount in its monthly subscription.
