  2. Windows 10 Scan App - PDF File Sizes Too Large

    Hi Teja,

    There are several reasons why the scanned file as PDF gets too large. Here are the most common causes:

    • Dot Per Inch (DPI) - Most scanners will use 300 DPI for scanning images, which is the minimum DPI for the images that were printed after scanning. However, 72 DPI should be already enough for a PDF that is for screen reading.
    • Saving the document as colored - Use black and white instead of color when scanning images to lessen file size. Make sure that any color settings such as
      Color Depth are also decreased.
    If the suggestions have been tried but the PDF file size is still too large, the next option is to check the PDF software that is performing the conversion itself.

    Let us know if you were able to lessen the PDF file sizes using the suggestions above or if you need further assistance.

  4. Scanning into one PDF file

    Searching in PDF?

    Hey guys, I need to look up a large list of data from a PDF file, basically just to check if each entry of the list is in the pdf. Is there some way to do this without having to check one by one?
