Reducing File Size

I have two camera shots of one page each I need to send online.

The stupid governmental system says you can attach up to 5 jpg, pdf docs, but only gives you a maximum of 7MB to send.

Sod's law means that these file are 4MB each as JPGs and three times as much each as PDFs. I don't know why they are so big.

What is the easiest way of reducing their size on my dektop or downloading them from my camera in a smaller size?

Is an online scanner the best option?

I usually find that the .jpg's are bigger than .pdf's so not a lot of help.

I was going to say save the .jpg's as .pdf's, but that doesn't seem to be your problem.

Insert into a word document and compress the photographs before doing a cute pdf to send.

If you open the JPG in windows it will probably launch the JPG into 'Photos' where there is an option to RESIZE the document (an option under the '...' menu on the top right) - so you are going to reduce it from 16 megapixel or whatever to 8, or 8 to 4 etc. then save the file. You might want to take copies of the original files in case you screw it up.

JPEGs are already compressed. Zipping will only make them a TINY bit smaller but may possibly make them a TINY bit larger!

If you don't want to mess around on your desktop there are loads of websites that offer to resize for you - although obviously you might have security concerns depending on the content of your images.

Type "resize my jpeg" into Google.

If you have a mac ImageOptim is a great piece of software for optimising images and reducing file sizes by a lot. They have a list of recommendations for other platforms too: To view the link you have to Register or Login
