I made 2 scans and they are in pdf extension. These are needed to support the text in a post for brake caliper shimming. Am I out of luck or can these be converted by someone so that they can be posted. And why can't pdf files be loaded?

Ab - My HP scanner software has options to scan document to file, which will be PDF or photo file which will be JPEG. I think most forums require jpeg. If you email me the PDF version I think I can convert it to JPEG for you and send it back. Probably some free software out there to do this if you google in "pdf to jpeg".

Albert - Phil is correct - PDFs are not acceptable on this forum or most other forums
PDF files are easier for nasty people to hide viruses in - I'm quickly getting out of my depth here tho so others may have a more educated response

One quick and dirty way to convert a .pdf to a .jpg is to maximize your.pdf window, zoom into the area of interest and then do alt/shift/printscreen (PC) to capture the image at screen resolution. Then open an image editor, copy the image, crop it and save it as a .jpg. Adobe acrobat also has a snapshot tool that allows you to copy an image area to the clipboard.
