i created a 30 page pdf file from a some scanned typed (printed) letter size pages (court documents).<br><br>using PS i cropped them down to get rid of the extra scan bed (legal size bed) on the image, at the same time i decreased resolution to 75 as well as auto adjusting the levels of each image, and saved. i did this to each of 30 pdf images. <br><br>i then multipaged them into a single pdf doc with acrobat pro.<br><br>each page originally was about 6mb and ended up at about 1000kb to 1mb each page, so my multipage pdf document went from an 80.x mb pdf to a 26.x mb pdf.<br><br>is that about right for 30 page pdf text document, 26.xmb? if not what should I do --isn't a resolution of 75 as low as i want to go or even too low?<br><br>thanks in advance.<br><br>
it's probably about right. Remember, you're not dealing with a text document, you're dealing with 30 images. If you can, make the images all grayscale or even bitmaps before you create the final PDF - this should reduce the size down quite a bit.<br><br><br><br>CreativeGuy: For your "fix" of design software tips, tricks & commentary.
