Supported File Types

Last Updated: 31 August, 2018

ElasticOCR supports a variety of file types to align with your document and content OCR needs. The following sections detail supported file types, as well as any specific requirements related to each type.

Input File Types


ElasticOCR accepts PDF files conforming to PDF 1.3-1.7 as valid input PDF file types.

Image Types

ElasticOCR accepts TIF/TIFF, JPG/JPEG, PNG and BMP images as valid input image file types. While the image's native resolution is used to generate the output file type, note that images will be downsampled to ensure that the output PDF does not exceed 18 inches (1,296 points) in either direction.

Output File Types

As of July 2018, all ElasticOCR jobs output an OCR'd PDF 1.5 file, regardless of the input type supplied.
