Hi guys,

Just wanted to let you know that I have not forgotten you. Been scanning, cropping, etc. files for about the last 11 hours. Have a few more ortho and ophtho files to add, finished off my burns and skin grafts folder, and just started on anaesthesia. Iíll see what else I can find.

Any requests for types of files to add? I may have something on your topic.

Does anyone have experience with Acrobat 5? Ė Iím trying to get my file size down. When I scan it, 8 pages takes as much space as a 180 page book someone else scanned. Iíve searched some, and found a kludgy solution in the form of scanning it into a different application and importing it into Acrobat as you get control of image resolution that way. You apparently donít have any control when you scan directly into acrobat. An alternative is to export to tiff files then put into Photoshop, reduce the resolution, and import back into the Acrobat document. Both these add a lot of steps and effort, and itís not going to happen! I also found a add-on post processor that would reduce file size, but it was commercial. Has anyone found a GOOD set of settings for Acrobat that will produce smaller file sizes or know of a good post-processor? Any other tips?

Iím trying to get this project off my desk, so itís shouldnít be too much longer. My apologies for taking so long.

Good afternoon,

I have been away from the forum for awhile so thought I'd say hello and just touch base concerning the CD project.

Thanks for all the hard work and look forward to receiving all of the great reference material.

Best Regards,
