Unfortuately the PDF's will not be created that way. The reason being is that it is not just me scanning stuff (far from it) and many people do not have access to Adobe Acrobat (like some only have, and thus do scanning on - an Amiga).
So basically, everything will get scanned as JPEG's or PNG's if low colour/detail - these images will then be embedded in a PDF doc.
