In this tutorial video I'm going to show you how to rotate and crop a PDF document a lot of times if you're scanning a book on a flatbed scanner it's hard to get it positioned correctly so luckily Adobe Acrobat Pro has some tools that'll let us fix it so first we want to open the document in Adobe Acrobat Pro and I did that by ctrl-clicking on it so here's my document if I scan through it you see some of these pages aren't rotated correctly so the way that I'm going to fix that first I'm going to go to tools then click on recognize text then click on in this file say all pages and what this is going to do is scan each the text on each page and try and reorient it if it's if it's slanted so I'll click OK you can see it working and saying that it's rotating the pages ok so I'm going to let that work for a second okay so that process has completed if I go through now I see most of these pages are oriented a little better there's still a few that are off don't worry about that I'm going to show you in a minute how you can fix that so next up I want to crop our pages so I'm going to cut off some of the stuff around the border the way I do that is click on pages crop and when you're doing this you might want to leave a little extra room because not all the pages are going to be centered in the same way so I'm going to make this a little bit bigger than it needs to and click enter once you've selected a region and I'm going to say that I want to apply this to all of the pages and click OK so what happened there is you see a crop you plug that a rectangle that I drew to every page now now that I've done that now that I've cut off the sides I can go back to that file that was a little off-center and let's try it one more time again clicking recognize text in this file for the current page click OK okay so now that we've gotten rid of the border it's recognizing the text a little better and you can see that it's oriented it correctly now the last thing I want to do is save my file if I save this as it is right now it's about 40 page document it will probably be anywhere between 10 and 20 megabytes I want to try to get it as small as I can if I'm going to be distributing this so I'm going to go up to file save as and reduce size PDF will make it smaller but optimized PDF will make it even smaller than that so I'll click optimized PDF and you'll have
