Hi, I want to include full page images of a magazine article in a new document. A single scanned page comes in at about 3.5 MB as a png (saved directly to png from the scan). Any suggestions as to how I might reduce that?
One idea I had was to lift the text off of the page and clean up the background. There is a lot of noise, mostly from information showing faintly through from the other side of the thin glossy paper. I spent a lot of time with the select by colour tool to lift the text off the page. I should add that I rescanned as an *.xcf format image to do this work. When I saved to *.png, it was pretty much the same size as before (even a little bigger). I should add that I don't understand much about the various image file formats, their features and weaknesses, and am learning how to use the various gimp tools as I go. Thanks, GC _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimpemail@example.com http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
