Hi Peoples,

Need some help. I want to scan some documents in and present them in pdf

The documents have both text and pictures and I want to get the best
resolution possible, but I want the resultant pdf files not to be huge.

At present, I am using xsane to scan in the documents, saving them in
postscript and using ps2pdf to convert to pdf format.

Is there a way of doing a really high resolution scan but when
converting to pdf, I get a much smaller (in size) pdf file without
loosing too much information.

Thanks in advance
