Since there's not much information, I'm going to have to make a lot of assumptions with this solution.

The basic issue you have is not the scanning, it's the scaling after the scanning. Since you do not indicate what software you are using to scan the image, I can't be certain without knowing what you're using, but most of these scanning packages allow you to 'resize' or 'scale' the image. How much to scale depends on how large the original is, and how small you need the final version, so some experimentation may be in order. As an example, with my scanner, I typically resize to about 50% of the original.

If you don't have that option, most graphics programs allow this fairly easily (you simply save, then open the scanned image in the image editor and perform the scaling there). Or, some programs even let you resize without opening the file, such as Microsoft's free Image Resizer tool (http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Install/2/WXP/EN-US/ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe) which allows resizing by right clicking on the file name.

Scanning and saving in a single file printer 966


Hello,

This printer can only scan to JPG format and that format only supports one page at a time. The only multipage file format is PDF which this printer does not support. To get everything into one file you would have to scan the pages to individual files and then use Winzip to combine then into one zip file that you can send to someone. Be careful the files will get very big very fast and some email providers will not accept files that size.

Lexmark pro205 trying to set scanner for 150 dpi scans to big need smaller


If you're concerned about the file size, uninstall the Lexmark driver and download an updated driver online at www.lexmark.com. That should reduce the file size of the scanned documents.

Need to scan multiple documents as a pdf and email file but when i scan file the fileis to big to email


Have you tried compressing the file into a zip format. If you are using Windows this can be done using right click or download zip genuis and use that. Once compressed the file should be small enough to email.

I'm finding that the scanning on the brother MFC-7840W creates a big file (a two page document is over 2MB). Is there a way to condense the pdf files?


Hi, you can reduce the file size by decreasing the DPI (dots per inch) or resolution of the scanned image. This can typically either be done from the scanner's control panel or from the software installed on your computer. The less DPI you set it for, the smaller your file will be.

Some scanners will also allow you to compress files. If the MFC-7840W will let you, the option would be in the software program, and it should say "enable file compression" or "enable image compression" or something similar.

I seem to have a problem scanning on the KM C351. When scanning a multiple page document I recieve 1 .pdf file per page. This happens whether or not Seperate Scan is selected. Right now the scan are sent...


the file type is set to single page
1.press the scan button on the control panel
2.select scan setting.
3.select file type.
4.select multi page to have the entire scan to be sent as a single file.
if you are sending jpegs they can only be sent as single page files on this machine. only pdf's and tiffs can be sent as multi page files

I scanned a 17 page document to pdf and got a 15mg file which I could not sent by e-mail. Checking some other pdf files, I see a 47 page document that is only 5kb. What's the deal? BwO


Resolution you scanned it at as well as scanning in color versus black and white. Also, that 47 page document might be vector graphics and text rather than bitmap information.
Scan in 200dpi black and white to get a usable (readable) and small file. Should be about 100-200kbytes per page.

Scanning files to large


It's the resolution you are using to scan. Try a lower setting. for documents, 150-200 dpi is fine. That will produce smaller files.

Scanned files are too big


Change the file format its saving in. different formats have different compression rations. Jpg images are smaller than bmp images. simply by changing it to jpg it will be 20 times smaller. To do this when click save and the save image box appers, in the format type select jpg or gif or what ever is avilable. Play around to see what gives you the smallest size. You can also use software like Photoshop, paint, and other image editors to change the format its being saved in.

When I scan one page, in the document info it show the size of the file to b : 13.66 MB or 29MB


This is not an issue with your printer, this is an issue with your email provider. It's telling you that the file size is too big to be sent by your email provider.

You can check with your email provider to see if they can increase the size that attachments are allowed to be, but that is no guarantee that the person you are sending to can receive files when they are that big.

The best solution is to either scan at a lower resolution, or use a more compressed file format. If you're not doing so already, scan to a .jpg file format. If that still does not work, try reducing the scan resolution... start at 600dpi, then maybe go down 100dpi at a time until it is small enough to send.
