Lexmark 8300 - Scan to PDF but the files are to large to email.

I have an issue with the size of the PDF files produced after scanning. They are so large that I cannot send in an email. I forward PDFs with 50plus pages all the time, so why is my 3 or 4 page scan too large to send. I have to scan page by page onto the clipboard and paste in into a word document. But even then the files are very large and I can only use a few scans in each document, making it very difficult with multiple pages.
Am I doing something wrong or is this just how it is supposed to be?

SOURCE: Lexmark X7350 Scan feature

well you are able to scan multiple documents.. but the file size is more.. the way lexmark software writes the pdf file.. the file will be huge for PDF... but not sure if this is a case with any other all in one manufacturer like HP also... but i would assume it would be the same.. so scan the file to MS WORD or any other application that supports multiple pages... so u have it as one file... but if u want only pdf files, then u have to do a little work around like writing the MS WORD Document to pdf format. If the PDF Writer is not installed with your copy of MSWORD then try any free pdf writer software available on the internet.

SOURCE: Scan multiple page with X4550

The 4550 will not allow multi page scanning into a single doc using the provided software. You should try another scan software that is TWAIN or WIA compatible. Those should work okay if you are using a USB connection.

SOURCE: can't scan to PDF

I would suggest scanning each page into their own file, convert each into a .pdf, and then using a free program to combine the .pdf pages.

SOURCE: Scan file from Lexmark 6100 is very large

If the documents you are scanning are black and white, make sure you are selecting that in the scanner dialogue box. If you need to keep gradiants, but don't need color, try selecting grayscale. If you are adjusting your DPI (dots per inch) to the maximum (300), try using something lower (recommend 150). Lastly, check the settings in the software you use to create PDFs to ensure they are the same as what you use at the office.

My lexmark prevail pro707 does not compress scanned files, these files become too large to email, how do I set it to compress scanned files please?


On my 901, I can reduce the size of the PDF file by changing the "quality" setting in the scan mode. More specifically, reducing the DPI that it scans at. I also noticed that scanning a document to a wireless network computer, and then scanning the same thing again directly to a flash drive plugged into the printer, results in significant variations of the file size. Perhaps trying different combinations of these things will help you with your problem. Good Luck.

Scanned images are too large to upload, are there settings I can change? Thanks!


Make sure the Lexmark X4650 printer driver is updated. You can update your printer driver by downloading and installing the downloadable driver from the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/iofMNC. Select your operating system, download and execute the file. Try to scan again and see the difference.
You can also try to lower the scan resolution (dpi setting) on your computer by launching the Lexmark Productivity Studio application. Select Scan > on the "What are you scanning?" screen, click Custom Settings > decrease the dpi setting to 200 or 150. Try to scan again.
You may also use third party scan softwares to decrease the scan file size if results are still too large for you.

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.

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.

When I scan to a pdf with the Lexmark X5470, the PDF files are way to huge. How can I have them scan to a normal size?


The file size is dependant on several things, such as, the amount of information on each page, the type of document (all text, image or combination and colors). Try to scan to OCR and then save as PDF.
If you have the full version of Acrobat, not just the reader, try scanning to a word file or RTF then convert to PDF.

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.
