scan to pdf

Are there times when you would love to scan and save directly as a PDF file?
Some scanner software allows you to do that but rarely can you scan several pages and save as a single PDF file.
Saving as a PDF directly from something you type is often available from the Save As option but a free utility will let you Scan multiple pages into a single PDF document.
