SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Scans are too large...

while scanning try reducing the DPI of the scans. this will make the image smaller in size but it will effect the picture quality very little. but do keep in mind that the dpi must be atleast 70 for better picturization

Change the scan resolution to 200 dots per inch (200 dpi). If 300 it tajes a few seconds. If 1200 dpi, it may take really long.

Scanned documents' size is too large (the least I got was 600kb), how can I scan a document to a PDF with the normal size of 200kb?


You need to install a PDF writer program first. There are quite a few freeware PDF writer programs on the Internet you can download one such as CutePDF.
Scan your document the click on File - Print and select the PDF writer as the printer device. Then name and save the PDF file.

How can I switch my scans from JPEG to PDF format without using a USB? I just got a new laptop and have my scans going direct to a folder on my computer but I want PDF files not JPEG. Do I really need to...


I dont agree with the first solution We have lots of these multi function printers at work and you can easily change the scanner output to PDF from the options menu including resolution, multi page etc. seach the manual for this option but the printer is certainly capable

Try just using the epson scan utility


1. Launch Epson Scan by going into your HARD DRIVE, APPLICATIONS, and EPSON SCAN.
2. If prompted, select your scanner from the list of models and click OK.
3. In the FILE SAVE SETTINGS window, you can designate the location, name and type of file the scans will be saved as.

-LOCATION defaults to HD/USERS/(YOUR USER NAME)/PICTURES. Click CHOOSE if you wish to change this.
-PREFIX determines how the scan will be named. Type any name you like. You can also designate a start number.
-FILE TYPE dictates what format the scans will be saved in. ie. .JPG, .TIFF, .PDF, or .PICT)
-For example: if the prefix is "img", the start number is "1", and the format is "JPG", the name of the file saved in
PICTURES will be "IMG001.JPG"
4. Click OK once settings are changed as desired.
5. The EPSON SCAN window will open and begin scanning in FULL AUTO MODE. In FULL AUTO MODE the software makes all the decisions for you (as to what is being scanned, where it is on the flatbed, etc). This is the easiest way to scan.
6. If you want full control over the scanning process click PAUSE and change FULL AUTO MODE to HOME MODE or PROFESSIONAL MODE. In the latter two modes you can change your scan settings as desired. Click SCAN after you have selected your settings. Click CLOSE once the EPSON SCAN is finished scanning.
7. When scanning is complete, your images will be saved in the location specified on FILE SAVE SETTINGS, with the prefix and in the format you set.

SCAN ORDER


This is almost impossible! THe scanner will scan only one page/image at a time and immediately stored. The roller can pickup only the top page. Are you converting them to a multipage PDF file? Is there any setting in creation of PDF file? If problem still persists, try and reinstall the software after uninstalling the existing version.
