What You Should Know About Essay Format
When you are asked to write an essay by your teacher then you should follow a certain format for it to be considered a well written one and also to make any effects on its readers. The topic may be given to you and at times you may be asked to write on a topic of your choice. Whatever the case may be; you still need to follow a format.

The basic format of the Essay consists of 3 parts; introduction, body and the conclusion. The body can be further broken down into as many components as required.

Introduction

Let’s see what the introduction should contain. It should start by introducing the topic so that the person reading knows what the rest of the essay is all going to be about. For example if you are writing an essay on global warming then you will need to inform the reader this. In the same paragraph, you should also give the reader a brief idea of how the essay is structured. This means what you will say first and then what else will you continue to state etc. in brief. Here you only have to mention the subheadings and not too much about details. Then in this same section you can also state the goal of your essay or what exactly are you trying to prove through it.

The Body

Here you start stating the various points related to the subject. This section is broken into different paragraphs and if required may also have subheadings too. You can envision each paragraph mentioning a separate point. You may have thought of 3 or 4 or even 5 points to write about; break each into a separate paragraph but then do not hesitate to break one sing point also into two paragraphs if the same point is trying to present two aspects of the point being mentioned.

Thus, in the body you will start to explain each point and also give any kind of evidence to support your argument. You may even give quotes in this part of the essay. This section basically will contain everything that you want to write about between introducing the subject and ending with the conclusion.

Conclusion

This section will summarize all the points mentioned above; it will start first with restating the introductory points and then summarizing the body and then ending with the concluding statement. The concluding statement should mention your final opinion on the topic discussed.


About Essay Format
It is very important that your essay be organized. This makes it easy for the reader and makes it interesting too. When the reader sees the essay so well organized; he has more faith in the matter being written about and also in the writer. A well organized essay indicates the clarity of thoughts of the writer too. Moreover, the presentation of the essay is also very neat. A disorganised essay where there is no proper introduction but one that has jumped straight to the point will mean that he writer has not thought about the essay at all before starting to write.

How to Pull Text from Images and Scanned PDFs in a Snap

How to Pull Text from Images and Scanned PDFs in a Snap
If you have experience using PDF files on a regular basis, and most people do, then you probably know that not all PDFs are the same.  Even though PDF files are popular for the fact that they are universal and look the same no matter what platform you are using, that does not mean that they are all created equally. 

There are essentially two types of PDFs – PDFs generated from an electronic source and scanned PDFs that were made from the image of a paper document. The first type is the most common. If you have created a document in Microsoft Word and then saved it as a PDF, you are talking about the first kind. However, if you have a spreadsheet of business data on paper that you have scanned and saved as a PDF, you are working with the second type.

PDFs generated from electronic sources are easier to access. This is because the characters and information that is found within the PDF already have electronic character designations, meaning that they can be easily recognized and pulled from the PDF. Scanned PDFs are another story entirely. They are essentially image files. Therefore, if you want to extract information from them, you are going to have to use a tool that can read and recognize those characters visually and then translate them into electronic form. 

That is one of the featured benefits that Invest in tech’s Able2Extract 8 Professional offers to users. Most PDF converters, both free online tools and paid software, cannot extract information from scanned PDFs. However, thanks to Able2Extract Pro’s industry-leading OCR technology, there is no PDF that cannot be converted using this software. 

OCR stands for optical character recognition, which is technology that enables the software to literally read the scanned image and recognize the characters that are found within the image and then turn them into electronic characters before converting the scanned image PDF into another, more editable file format. 

Using Able2Extract Professional 8, users can take scans of physical book pages and convert these image PDFs into editable Microsoft Word or Text files. Or they can take a scan of a data table that was handed out at a recent meeting and convert the PDF into an editable Excel spreadsheet for further evaluation. 

Here’s a look at how the process works.

This is a scanned PDF that we want to convert into an editable Microsoft Excel document. 

PDF

Run Able2Extract Professional 8 and open the PDF.

Once the file is open, you can choose to either convert the entire PDF by selecting “All” or only parts of the document by selecting “Area.”

Convert the entire PDF by selecting “All” or only parts of the document by selecting “Area”

In this example, we will only convert one table within the PDF, not the entire document. Simply select what you want to convert with your mouse.

Now click on “Excel.”

Now click on “Excel”

Since the conversion of PDF to Excel documents really requires a lot of accuracy so that the output file is easily usable immediately, Able2Extract provides custom options for Excel conversions that allow you to get everything exactly write. To use these customization options, click on “Define.”

Custom options for Excel conversions

The Custom options allow you to define the rows and columns to make sure that everything is set up perfectly before you begin the conversion. You can even preview the file before committing to the conversion.

Once you have set up the columns and rows perfectly, simply click the green “Convert” button and select where you want your file to be saved. This is what the defined columns and rows looked like once we completed our customization of the conversion output.

OCR technologyAs you see, Able2Extract Professional 8 provides users with the advanced OCR technology needed to interpret the characters locked within scanned image PDFs and then translate them into electronic formats before converting the file into an editable document.

Not only that, but the software also offers advanced settings and features that enable users to create tailor-made and incredibly accurate conversions that will not need any further editing before use. This professional PDF conversion utility is available for $129.95 or a month-long subscription license can be purchased for $34.95.
