    Hi all...

    Can Pages convert pdf's ?

    What i am trying to do, (i should have done this properly initially), is i have a few scanned PDF files... Not really regular PDF, but rather scanned from physical magazines, each page of the mag scanned as jpg, and then i converted these jpg' to one pdf, for each mag...

    Now, however, i see this was a bad idea... and probably the reason why spotlight cannot search within since their static images, not true PDF's

    so my question, how do i go about taking these static-image based PDF's and convert them into regular PDF's u can search inside ?

    Is there any app on the Mac that can do this, or would i need to use Acrobat ? (which is what i used initially to covert these jpg's to pdf.) ?
