On our copiers, we have the option of scanning to Compact PDF. All it does is use the highest compression for the embedded JPEG images. The copier will not allow the selection of Compact PDF if the color depth is set to grayscale or black and white. Hence, I believe you are correct in your assessment. Grayscale is essentially a 256 color (8 bit) image which uses only black as a color.

I might be wrong, but I don’t believe JPEG supports 8 bit (256 color) images. Even if it does technically, the format is not really intended for 8 bit images, but rather 16 bit or higher. _______________________________________________ use-livecode mailing list email@example.com Please visit this url to subscribe, unsubscribe and manage your subscription preferences: http://lists.runrev.com/mailman/listinfo/use-livecode
