im scanning from a book and am saving it as a PDF file. some pages dont seem to rotate it automatically though (as that what Adobe is meant to do)...and when i try to do that myself and save it, it doesn't save the changes. well it does, but when i reopen the *supposedly* saved document it just opens it like how it scanned it--->upside-down.

hereis an example.

so i reopen the file, flip it and save it. and the result is this

i even tried to rename the document, but to no avail.

any ideas?

^yh i think it has something to do with the way i scanned it. but it shouldn't matter anyway since i have the option of rotating the page.

never mind for now anyway sis, my brother said i should just use vuescan...so i'll take it from there and see how it goes.

thanks for the help.
