About 53 pages and pictures are only 18 in total and all only 1.5 height and width. I was hoping I could at least bring this down to 5-6 Mb but as I’ve tried with 7-zip, not much change to warrant compressing.
So it’s probably the jpegs taking up most of the 1+ mb filesize.
In that case, you probably won’t see much more reduction. I don’t know much about 7zip as I never used it extensively, but winrar and the old pkzip and winzip programmes let you choose between different levels of compression. “Normal” was/is usually checked by default. You can set “best” if you want and see if there’s much difference. I don’t know why this option isn’t the default nowadays because it doesn’t take most modern PCs long to zip o r rar up large amounts of data, but that’s still the case in winrar as well. Still, I just have to select the appropriate item in the dialogue box and hit enter and, there you go, it’s done.
Still think though that you won’t see much result if the file is full of pictures. How small do you actually want to make this thing?

It depends on the type of file. For stuff that is already compressed, like mp3s or jpgs, you will not see much reduction at all. But for text, the difference should be significant.
I attempted this. I went from 11.8 Mb to 11.3 Mb. Should I not have more reduction or is this it?
Seven Zip iis the best I have used. But for a basic one time need the buitl in zip funtcion in windows is fine. Right click then go to send to then click Compressed (zipped) folder. On 7/31/2019 11:02 AM, Rick Mladek wrote:
