Troubles with multiple scanning

Post by Paulyus »

I use XnView 1.91.6 full and have some problems with multiple scanning to single PDF - the size of result file is much bigger than i expected!(3 grayscale images of text is about 3,5mb).I tried to use varios types of PDF compression but nothing changed.Is it bug or i do something wrong?

Do you have tried ZIP or LZW compression? Which size in pixels have the scans?

Yes,i did.It doesn`t matter which type of compression i used - result always the same!I scan with resolution 150 dpi.I thought there is problem between Xnview and TWAIN driver of scanner( HP 5590).

Did you try this for small pdf size ? (strange because JPEG compression works for me) :
http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?t=13907
'mouse select some images(Ctrl+mouse) or tag images \ create \ multi-page file' to PDF.
Just set before to save to “Portable Document Format”: Options\PDF(write)\Compression: JPEG and (~90%) to have a small PDF file ( because ZIP compression is by default).

I use batch scanning right to PDF.Your method is a bit longer and it not so conveniently like batch scanning.

Hello to everyone!I back again to my problem with batch scanning in to multipage PDF.
What we have -
XnView 1.92.1, HP 3390.
Settings - "Acquire into...",Multipage PDF with JPEG compression.
When i scan with 200dpi truecolor i have pdf-file about 200kb, but then i scan with 200dpi grayscale i have pdf-file over 2000kb.
I tried to change compression into LZIW,ZIP and others, but in general, nothing changes - smallest pdf-file i have only with JPEG compression and truecolor.
Is it bug or i do something wrong?

PS In version 1.91 pdf-file with JPEG comression and truecolor was over 2000kb too.

If you try to save the scan in png (for example), and load/save by xnview in pdf, do you have the same size?
