@alfernandez75 Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you would like to Scanning multiple pages.


Save multiple pages or photos into one PDF file using HP Scan. You must have Adobe Reader software installed on the computer. Go to Get Adobe Reader to install the software.


HP Scan does not support adding multiple JPEG, PNG, or TIFF photos into a single file. You must save photos in PDF format to save them all in one file.

  1. Check the following requirements for multi-page scanning into one PDF file:

    • To save multiple photos into one file, you must use the PDF document-related shortcuts.

    • Use a resolution setting of 300 DPI or lower.

  2. Search Windows for HP, and then select your printer.

    HP Printer Assistant opens.

  3. Click Scan, and then click Scan a Document or Photo.

    HP Scan opens.

  4. In HP Scan, select the Save as PDF or Document to File shortcut.

    • If , click Save. All pages save into a single file.scanned multiple pages from the ADF

    • If you scanned from the scanner glass, load the next page or photo on the glass. Click the plus button  or  in the HP Scan preview window to scan the next item. Repeat this step until all pages or photos are scanned, and then click Save.

  5. Select PDF in the Save as type menu.

  6. Change the file name and the folder you want to save the scan to, and then click Save.
