PDF documents looks very large after scanning
  

I have HP Photosmart Premium all-in-one and I am using MACbook pro. All the things were going fine, I was not facing any problems with my laptop or my printer. But before someday I got some important documents which I scanned form my HP Photosmart. But when I complete with the scan all the files were occupying the very huge. I found that each document which I scanned was showing the large number of size. I don?t know what is going wrong with my scanner, please reply me what can be the reason behind this.

Re: PDF documents looks very large after scanning

As you have said that each page file size is very huge it means those files must be containing images or some special cherechters. I suggest you to try to compress the all documents and then see what difference does it make. You can compress it by using any useful compress application. Try this solution I hope it will be helpful for you and you will be able to solve your problem very easily. If you are still finding the problem with that then please let me know.

Ok after watching your post I tried to compress the document and after the compressing process is done when I checked the size again but it compresses with very little difference and it doesn?t make any sense for me because I have to mail this document so if you have any more idea then please reply me with your suggestion. Is there anything wrong with my scanner? If yes then please tell me what should I do to solve this problem. Please reply me

Ok. As you are facing the same problem again then I suggest you to just remove the printer application from your laptop and then restart your laptop after that install tha same application again. Once you done with the drivers I think you will be not having the problem after this. Please try this trick. I hope this will be helpful to you and you will not face the same problem again. Just try this and please tell me whether this trick worked for you or not?

According to me the document which you are trying to scan is contains TEXT as picture which affect the size of the document after scanning is done. And those words are very heavy to. So to solve this problem just contact with the person who sends you this document and ask them for resend the documents. Or run those documents through OCR and try to edit it according to your comfort. I hope this will fix your problem.

If you don?t want to try this solution then it?s ok. Otherwise you just download the fine reader application for MAC and scan your document again after that it will directly give you option to save that document in Word format where you can easily compress the documents and easily edit them too. I have tried also same thing and it really worked for me and I know you will be also able to solve this problem. I hope you will get best results.
