the best way to quickly skim the contents. For that I prefer PDF scaled
(in the viewer) just big enough to be just legible, and when I've found
the part I want I go to the raw scan and extract exactly the bit I need.
One additional hint though:
For OCR JPG definitely is NOT the format you want to use. For best
results scan directly to black and white and save as a two colour (i.e.
black and white, i.e. one bit per pixel) PNG. Just open any JPG with
scanned text and enlarge the area around a single letter and you'll see,
why OCRs struggle with it.

Don't expect too much though.
