Once you have captured all the images, you will see an overview of all the images on your screen. Press and hold an image that you have captured to select it.

 

Select the relevant pages that need to be submitted, then click on the icon that says ‘Email’ at the bottom left-hand corner of the page.

Click the icon that says ‘PDF’.

Click ‘Send’ at the top right-hand corner.

Step 9:

You will arrive at a page showing a new email draft. The PDF will be attached to this email. Key in your personal email address under ‘To’, then send the PDF to yourself.

Please download the PDF attachment in your email inbox via a laptop or other devices.
