ImageGear Features: PDF/A

ImageGear has a variety of features and functionalities for all of our platforms. See what options are available in your preferred platform.


Convert PDF files into PDF/A documents with ImageGear. PDF/A is an ISO-standardized type of PDF file that’s used for archiving and long-term preservation of files so they can be reproduced exactly as the original file. Elements, such as fonts, must be self-contained or embedded to preserve the original file’s formatting and properties. PDF/A is already popular in Europe, and is becoming a more widely used file format in the U.S., especially in legal fields and industries that must maintain Sarbanes-Oxley compliance.

ImageGear PDF/A features:

  • Create PDF/A files from raster image files and scanned images
  • Verify PDF documents for PDF/X (PDF/X-1a, PDF/X-3, and PDF/X-4) and PDF/A (PDF/A-2b) compliance
  • Convert non-compliant PDF files into PDF/A-2b compliant PDF files.*
  • New enhancements improve the compliance checks and conversion process from PDF to PDF/A

*Currently our PDF to PDF/A conversion is only available in ImageGear .NET
