2023-12-04 - How To Delete a Page in a Scanned PDF File

Quickly remove a page from your scanned PDF file

Deleting one or more pages from a PDF has never been so easy. We’ll save your documents to your default download folder with “pages-deleted” at the end of the name. That way, you still have the original file as a backup and don’t accidentally overwrite it. If you have multiple files that belong together, keep in mind that we also have a tool to merge documents for you.

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 an online service, it doesn’t matter what device or browser you’re using; all you need is a solid internet connection.

If you prefer to remove a page with locally installed software, that’s also possible with our offline Smallpdf Desktop App. You can delete pages from scanned PDFs offline, which is perfect if you don’t always have steady internet or if you’re not a fan of uploading files to the internet. Simply open your file in the app, right-click on the page you want to delete, and choose “Delete.” It really is as easy as that. As you select the page, you can also move it around, rotate it, or even add a blank page 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’ll remove your files from our servers one hour after uploading them to the Delete Pages tool. This is also the case for most of our other tools, except for eSign. Out of necessity, we keep files sent out for signature requests on our servers longer so that signees have time to review the file and sign.

More Than a Page Removal Tool


Smallpdf can do so much more. With over a billion accumulated users and millions of users every month, we’re one of the most popular online PDF tool suites. We give our users access to almost two dozen tools for practically every PDF-related task you can think of. You can convert PDFs to other formats, add page numbers, or even edit, and e-sign—all functions that normally require expensive, heavy-duty PDF software like Adobe Acrobat.

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 aim to achieve just this.


Hurray for free PDF tools!
