Reply To: Handheld scanners?

Karen Horton

I also have a camera stand for books and fragile documents, but I am wondering whether anyone can enlighten me about converting the rather large jpg file that is produced for each photograph to a much more handle-able pdf file for everyday use that retains reasonable printable quality. I have not been successful in creating a pdf that is significantly smaller than the original photo (i.e., the digital file is fewer K) using Photoshop. Whereas, a scanner can produce a good quality 300 dpi image that is printable and not such a large file. Can someone point me to an online resource to help me learn more about manipulating these images?
