How to change DPI settings for Officejet 4500 Wireless

Printer: HP Officejet 4500 Wireless G510n (CN547A) 

 

OS: Windows 7 64 bit

 

My DPI settings seem to be too high.  I'm scanning one page and the file is 21MB in size.  I cannot find how to lower the dpi.

 

Is there a way to do so on this device?

 

Thanks.

Hi zulwe,

 

You can adjust the DPI and PPI settings depending on the program you're using. Since you're using Windows as your OS, you may have the HP Solution Center for this Officejet printer. Check this: Scanning with HP Solution Center Software in Windows

 

And no, we can't do this on the device. It can only be done thru your computer.

thank you, this worked.  I set it down to 150 dpi and the doc was still 12MB!  I'll use the lowest setting and see how that works

Hi again!

 

I'm glad that it worked for you. How bout changing the file extension maybe? Not sure if this works for docs though, try using JPG as it's smaller compared to TIFF and PDF formats but still has good image output. Also try adjusting the quality (best, normal, draft, etc).
