PDF Image Printer can create   files that can be used by fax software or a hardware fax board on your computer. For searchable PDFs (ie. Adobe PDF), PDF Image Printer can only create files that are restricted to fax paper size. For non-searchable PDFs (note: Create each page of the PDF as an image is enabled on the Save Options tab) PDF Image Printer can create files that are restricted to both fax resolutions and fax paper size.
