Default email problem

I needed to add a page (image), to a PDF document so I used Open Office and exported as PDF, every thing worked fine.

But my problem is when I emailed the PDF the recipient rejected it as too large.
I do not want to split up this document as it is my resume. It only contains 3 A4 pages of print and 1 scanned page.

I tried to 7zip with add button but indicated this function not supported.

Can anybody help please

Scanned pages are usually big. Try PDF Compressor mentioned in http://www.techsupportalert.com/cont...ther-Functions or check out this method if it helps.

If it is already in electronic format such as PDF, why are you scanning it?? Just attach it as a PDF.

Sometimes PDF documents just won't go as attachments. I have to send some regularly and have to convert them to PDFs.

Zip the PDF??

What format and size did you scan to.
Anything in a higher resolution than 300bpi is likely to be a waste of time and 150bpi is high quality for print.

Not all programs will compress the same when converting to PDF. Open the PDF document with something like Bullzip PDF printer then save it again, the file size may change. I can't explain why, but I"m pretty sure the image your working with is at the root of your issue. You can also try uploading your documents, including the image to a free online PDF converter and see what file size the final document is.

Some programs retain undo information in the document for the current session and only remove it the next time you save the document in a separate session.

I'm not sure if this applies with PDFs because I've never had to find out.

By separate session, there can be two types of session:
  • document: so you close the document and reopen it to create a new editing session
  • program: you close the program and reopen it so it has to discard any of its session data.
