PDF size

Post by tgx »

Hello all, I am new to Xnview and in particular I am interested in nConvert.
Let me say Kudos to the codemaster! This is an all around terrific program.
I am having a particular issue with converting images into PDF. Namely
the output files are HUGE! I can understand a little overhead but wow.
I have a 49KB .mag file that outputs to a 10MB PDF....The same image
converted to TIFF rings in at 54KB. Is there a setting I am missing?
I mean I can stuff the PDF in a zip program and chop it down to 171KB, but
that's not a long term solution as far as storage is concerned.

Thanks to all
