Samsung and scanning to PDF in macOS Mojave

… is broken. There is no way to use default Image Capture application with Samsung SCX-4500W printer. However, there is hope :)

You can download Samsung Easy Document Creator from here: link. Please note that Samsung line of printers was acquired by HP – this is why you have to download application from HP’s pages.

When you open this page, make sure to choose macOS 10.3 – there is no application for macOS Mojave.

Once application is installed, you can use it for scanning pages directly to PDF files – it will not crash the same way Image Capture does. Also, you will be able to open files inside Preview :)
