I reduced the resolution (result was poor quality).I selected BW and grayscale.....same problem.
My old HP4300 would scan on BW at 300 dpi and not go to MB.....................
what else can I do?

After selecting "scan to PDF", click on "Advance Settings". In one of the 3 tabs, (I believe the middle one) says "File Type" selected as "PDF". Here we can see a slider which is set to maximun. So all you have to do is set the slider to minimum or close to it. Now try scanning.

I have found the PERFECT solution for sending ANY file that's too big for email... Adobe SendNow. It's free for the basic program, but if you send a lot, get the upgrade... $10 a month or $100/year. We've been using it to send multiple video clips. Works great!!!
This way, you won't have to sacrifice clarity or size...

I totally need some assistance with reducing the MB of an already scanned file. I am unable to find the original at this time and can only locate the scanned copy in my dropbox file. Can anyone help?
I've tried cropping it, adjusting it but to no avail. When I print the document out to rescan it, it is large and overexceeds the margins (if that makes any sense) and some of the information cuts off.

You can reduce your file size by
1. Reducing the scan resolution
2.Scan your document in black/white or grayscale
Let me know if this helps you, thanks.

Hi - I have a HP Officejet pro L7555. Scans look fine, but click on properties and they are over 20 x 30 inches. I have tried reducing the size from 200 to 100 and that reduces the pdf file size to something like 17 x 25 inches, which is still not 9.5 x 11. I tried that suggestion of changing the slider on the advanced setting pdf to a lower place, like 1/4, and it is still way too big.
Why would the scanner take a 8.5 x 11 image and change it to a larger one? There must be a standard way of scanning that does not have this problem. In normal use, nobody wants to send huge files.
