Why are pdfs so huge when using scan option in Files?
I had to scan a 4 page document and email it. When I scanned it from within the iPad Files app, it was 21 mb. Took forever to upload to iCloud, and I got an error message when I tried to email it as an attachment, something about it may be too large to send.
I finally got out my portable scanner, an Epson ds-40, and installed the Epson app on the ipad. The pdf from that ended up being less than 2 mb.
I’d like a good way to scan if I don’t have access to the Epson scanner. Is there a way to adjust the built in iPad scan to a lower dpi? I haven’t been able to find anyplace to change settings. My iPad is 6th gen with ipados 13.3.1.
