A free tool to remove pages from PDF files online, at no cost. No registration or installation is needed either.

Have you just scanned a bunch of PDF documents and need to extract specific pages from your new file, now in digital format? We’ve got the right tool to get you started, where you can conveniently delete as many pages from a scanned PDF file.

How To Delete a Page in a Scanned PDF File Online

  1. Drag and drop the scanned PDF to the Delete PDF Pages tool.

  2. Hover over the page you want to delete.

  3. Click the trash bin icon to remove the page.

  4. “Apply Changes” and download your new PDF.


Quickly remove a page(s) from your scanned PDF file.

With this tool, you can remove multiple pages from any document. If you have multiple files, remember that we also have a tool to combine these pages for you so you can carry out the page removal process simultaneously. We will save your documents to your default download folder, with the string ‘pages-deleted’ to prevent you from overwriting the original PDF file.

How To Remove a Page From a Scanned PDF Without Software


The entire Smallpdf website is free for limited use, without the need to register an account or install a PDF software. Because Smallpdf is online, it doesn’t matter what device or browser you’re on—all you do need is a solid internet connection.

If you prefer to remove a page with software, that’s also possible. Our offline Smallpdf Desktop App is available for Pro users which is perfect if you don’t always have steady internet or if you’re not a fan of uploading files online. To remove a page offline, open your file in the app, right-click on the page you want to delete, and choose “Delete.” As you select the page, you can also move it around, rotate, or even add a blank page in between existing pages.

You can rest easy knowing that your files are safe with us when uploaded to our tools. Smallpdf secures your files with TLS encryption and we will remove your files from our servers one hour after uploading to the Delete Pages tool. This is also the same for the majority of our other tools, with the exception of eSign. If you would like to find out more, please check our Privacy Policy.

More Than a Page Removal Tool


Smallpdf can do so, so much more. With over a billion accumulated users and 40 million users each month, we give our users access to almost two dozen tools for most PDF related tasks. You can convert them to other formats, add page numbers, or even add text, and eSign—functions that you would normally require Adobe Acrobat Pro or another heavy-duty PDF software to use.

And lastly, we want your daily operations to go as smoothly as possible when it comes to PDF editing. With our easy-to-use site, drag-and-drop interface, and quick conversion time, we hope to achieve just this.

Thank you for visiting Smallpdf!


Hurray for free PDF tools!
