    Open it up in preview, select print. Then instead of printing it to a printer, select the save as pdf button on the dialog box.

    Hi All


    OK have scanned a manual in, all pages correctly orientated when viewed as individual
    jpg files.

    On placing said images into preview all images show OK in the sidebar and in the main
    window, but when I make the PDF and then view the PDF they have all rotated 90 degrees so are all sideways in the PDF.

    What do I need to do so in the created PDF so the pages show correctly ?


    Thanks......

    Hi All

    Sorted, what I did.

    1. Made sure all images were alpha/numerical order
    2. Selected all images and opened with Preview
    3. Once all images in Preview selected them all in sidebar
    4. Go to file >> Print Selected Pages >> Preview >> select them in sidebar >> Select
    Tools from drop down menu >> then used the rotate option >> then saved as.
