Thank you very much, and i'm glad you enjoyed the video. I have only thought about listing on Youtube, but never thought about a DVD book! Although I am a terrible writer, I could maybe make a DVD, who knows!

Hi, thanks for the response. I have some ideas for you. Mainly because I am a frustrated user of Photoshop. I don't use it enough to become proficient, but often enough that I NEED to learn more. Your method of teaching is great. I got the point the first time I watched it. What I Am good at is being able to know when an instructor is not giving enough information, or too much. You did just perfect. I'd be happy to act as your proofreader helper for free. It would be worth it just to learn more. Think about it. Many have made TONS of $$$$ writing similar types of tutorials on other subjects.

Convert Scanned Image-Only PDF Files to PDF Searchable Image Files via OCR with Power PDF Advanced
In this video, we show how to convert an image-only PDF file into a PDF Searchable Image file, that is, a file with both the image (typically from scanning) and text, which is created in an automated fashion with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software. To do this, we will set up a Watched Folder, such that whenever an image-only PDF file arrives in the Watched Folder, it will automatically be converted to a PDF Searchable Image file. We will achieve this using Power PDF, the newest product from the Document Imaging division of Nuance Communications. There are two editions of Power PDF — Standard and Advanced. The Watched Folder feature is in the Advanced edition only.
