I scan my material at the highest resolution possible. Each scan is about 3 mg in jpg. format. When you convert to PDF the entire file is compressed anyway. With PDF you can increase the size so scan and keep as original.

scratch that ,first page came out at 17megs and that was at 300dpi,so a little trial and error is called for i think.

Can you not use OCR to get the text then scan in any pictures seperately?

Or convert to greyscale and only use colour for images.

I normally use 100-150dpi

Ideal for quick, good quality scanning.

The file size is usually around 1mb per jpg
