Output document has much larger file size than the original document
The file size of your output document may be much larger than the original document if you are converting or merging a PDF, Word document or other document into a raster image.
Supported File Formats shows a list of file formats and their supported bit depths. Please see the following suggestions to reduce the file size:
Use one of the following methods prior to decompression to reduce the output dots per inch (DPI) or bit depth. Please see Image Quality Manipulation for more detailed information.
IMGLOW_set_document_input(int dpi, int bits_pix, int format)converts PDF, Word, Excel, PCL and AFP formats.
IMGLOW_set_pcl_input(int dpi, int bits_pix)converts PCL formats only.
IMGLOW_set_pdf_input(int dpi, int bits_pix)converts PDF formats only.
Use one of the following color reduction methods to reduce 8-bit and 24-bit images to smaller gray scale images. Please see Color Manipulation Methods for more detailed information:
IMG_color_gray()converts 24-bit color images to 8-bit gray scale images.
IMG_resize_to_gray(int xsize, int ysize)resizes a 1-bit black and white image to a (smaller) 8-bit grayscale image.
IMG_diffusion_mono()converts 4, 8 or 24 bit images to 1-bit per pixel bi-level images using the Stucky error diffusion technique.
