Can't you instruct her on how to properly scan said documents? Nonetheless that's quite interesting that she's working the scanner but doesn't know how it works... Haha

I've had to flip many PDFs, and if you flip one page in a file, it flips them all (which is a pain when some of the pages the boss sends in an e-fax are upside down and some are right-side up). OP should go back and tell the scanner how to do it properly.

Why can't you just rotate them digitally after she scans them? Whether they're saved as PDF or JPG or some other format, the thing about scanning them is that they're easily manipulable.

Yes, but if you are talking hundreds of pages those extra clicks to rotate each individual page can make the whole project more tedious especially when you expect the other person to do their job right. No, it's not hard, but he shouldn't have to do it so I can see it becoming very frustrating for OP. I'd suggest simply asking the scanner to turn them around again.

Also, if the scanning is her job, she should do it correctly, not expect someone who relies on her to do her job correctly to constantly fix her mistakes. That's not fair to OP and he shouldn't have to do her job for her.

You can record an action in Photoshop, so something that takes a few steps can be done in a second. You can flip all the pages in a PDF. It's not a big deal to flip pages.

You're assuming OP has access to Photoshop. Which they quite possibly don't, and once again- it isn't part of OP's job, it's the scanner's job to not only scan documents, but to scan them in a way that allows those using the documents to do so with maximal efficiency.

@usnwife #6; it's actually not that tedious if it's hundreds of files that need corrected...there's something called multiple select that can be used to change several documents at once...so yea it's a simple fix and you don't need any sort of photoshop program...but either way it shouldn't have to be corrected in the first place

You can use a tool like imagemagick to rotate a lot of images very quickly. This is easy when they are consistent -- you just run `mkdir -p rotated; for a in *.png; do convert -rotate 180 $a rotated/$a; end` and Bob's your uncle. (Modifying this for Windows is left as an exercise for the reader.)

But when they're inconsistent, you have to go through and identify each item to be flipped. That's strictly worse.
