Check the settings on your scanner when you get a window with choices when you start the scan.

How can I compress a scanned document so it isn't so large ?


The scanned image could be a TIF or BMP file, which can be quite large.

Download the FREE 'GIMP' (Graphical Image Manipulation Program), and install it.
Load the image. Crop it (to reduce size). Use 'Save As' to save as a GIF or JPG or PNG file,
which automatically compresses it.

Problem with size of scanned document using HP laserjet 3380


It depends also on what you are scanning....half tones, pictures etc. but the easiest way to control the file size of PDF's is to change the resolution setting. Also referred to as the quality setting. These are settings like Super Fine, Fine, Standard. It should be right on your control panel. It is the same setting you can change when sending a fax. If your default setting is Fine for example, changing it to standard will use a lower resolution and reduce the file size. In other words the higher resolution/quality setting you use make the file size much larger.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

When I save a scanned document you increase the file size. Please. Thanks.


Document size can be set before you scan.
Your scanner software should give you options for type of document and resolution settings. If your documents are to large, set resolution lower.
Example, Black and white or greyscale scans are much smaller in size than color documents.
Saving files as jpg will compress the file for storage.
If you have an image editing program you can decrease the size of the file after the scan.

I scanned a document, but when I go to attach the file, it stays in attaching files forever??


Greg, Do you mean that when you want to send it by email it keeps attaching the file forever? If yes then check the size of the scanned document. What happens is that the moment you attach a document to an email Windows start sending it to the email server and that takes time as uploading is slower than downloading. And if the file a large one as scanned documents can be, then it will take that much longer. Try a smaller document first. Size wise small document. If that works fine then you can try larger documents. yes it may be time consuming but there is no price for mental satisfaction. To reduce the size of the scanned document, reduce the pixels in settings of the scanner. or reduce the page size. You will find the document reduced many times over.

I HAVE A LEXMARK X9350 AND WHEN I SCAN ITEMS, THE FILE SIZE IS HUGE. EG 1 PAGE = 3MB. HOW CAN I REDUCE THE SIZE OF THE FILE


See the manual for X9350 on page 119.

The software application must be used for saving files to a specific format that you can select from the menu on the computer.

Standard scans are often saved as bitmap with the extension .bmp .
Select another file format like jpeg with the extension .jpg or .jpeg, when you want to view the scans in photoview afterwards.

Another option is to save the file in a format that can be read with Adobe Reader, selecting .pdf format.

A last option is to reduce your file size, changing the scan settings:
( I wouldn't advise; this can result in unclear copies ):
Advanced scan settings can be changed on the computer as well:
See reducing e.g. "scan resolution" and "color depth" on page 120.

Use the link support for Lexmark 9300 series for more help.

How to scan a document where it doesn't take so much space? When I scan a contract of 8 pages it is like 13MB. I need it to be smaller like in KB.


Hello,

One of the main ways to reduce document size is to consider what format you are saving them as.

I just did a sample scan and the following are the results of different formats:

.png - 88 KB
.gif - 108 KB
.bmp - 192 KB
.tif - 196 KB
.jpg - 1.14 MB

As you can see the JPG file is over 10 times larger than the PNG file.

Also make sure that you do not scan as a color scan if it is not needed. The above scans were all scanned in black & white.

I hope this has helped you. Thanks for using Fixya.

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.

How to use the scanner on my Epson 60000


there are different type of scannig programs. I am not that particular with your epson scanner. You can try scanning the document and if you want to archive it you can try choosig the option of file type as compressed tif. If you do not have this option there would be times that scanning software will have the preview of the document you have scanned and will asked you if you want to reduce or enlarge size. If resizing option is not available in your scanner software you can try saving it first in your computer. After saving the document try to open microsoft word and create a new file. Then look for the document you have scanned and copy that document. Once you have copied it go back to microsoft word and paste the documet. you could now resize the document manually. but for further clarification you can try calling your scanner provider. they might have some programs for it and will give it to you
