Hi,
Check for the Save Options in scanner settings. If it is in .GIF or .TIFF format the file size obviously increases.  If you change it to .JPEG format it reduces to around 900kb.

You can try to update your printer driver by downloading the Lexmark X7170 driver from the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/fWPweq. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.
You can also try to decrease the scan resolution. Launch Lexmark All-In-One Center application on your computer. Select Scan mode > See More Scan Settings > lower the scan resolution value to 200 or 150 dpi. Note: This will decrease the scan file size and affect the scan output.
Or you can use a third party scan software to decrease scan file size. You can search the web for free scan softwares.

Please help... when i scan more than 10 docs and then try to attach it to an email, it states that the file is too large ... please help me with my Lexmark X4270


You should setup the scan resolution to a lot less.
Scanned images can take a lot of space it scanned at high resolution and with many colors.
If it is a document, you can set it to scan black and white or gray and instead of the default resolution (300dpi) you should try scanning at 75dpi or 100dpi.
Those settings can reduce a scanned image to few ks instead of 10s of megs.

The average mail systems can't handle mail messages larger than 10Mb.

I would also suggest playing with the scanner to get the best results before trying to mail the scanned documents.

Hp laserjet 3055 scans larger than print area


When you place a document for scan, you must select the portion you want to be scanned.

You must also set the resolution which is set to 300 by default, if you want a actual size then set the resolution to 75, which is 3% larger then actual image.

It will reduce size in KB or MB of your image and it will be exact size.

Similarly, when you want to print, you must select option "Exact Fit" and print your document.

Everything will be normal.

Cheers

Scanned documents too large


When you scan them, save them as a different type of document. Try saving them as a web document. They will reproduce almost as good and will be a lot smaller in size (bytes, not inches).

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.

Scanning docs & size of pdf files on Mac w/HP l7680 All-in-one


The scanner produces a "picture" of the document, much as if you laid it flat on a table and took a picture of it with your digital camera. If you did this, your .jpg from the camera would be several hundred K at a minimum - comparable to the file size off the scanner. That's why the file is so big, it contains a picture and not text data - even though it's still a .jpg file.
If you reduce the scan resolution you will save space, but at the expense of legibility of the document image. To get it down to the smallest possible size, you will need to run the scanned image through OCR ( Optical Character Recognition ) into a Word document for example, and then print it out to a .pdf file. If you have a clean source document with few graphics this isn't as difficult as it may seem. Microsoft Office has an excellent OCR process known as Document Imaging. You need to carefully proof read the result but with a clean input Document Imaging is amazingly accurate in Office 2007.
In short, there is no easy solution to your problem.
