I have a bunch of scanned monochrome images like this: You might try all the “-compress” options to see which is the best. But I do not know if that is true. You could also try converting with -monochrome, but that will dither the output, but it might be smaller.

This allows readable lecture notes in while preserving small size per page as you can see in Some Tips on Scanning Lecture Notes. Imagekagick Required, but never shown. You can test compression methods by converting your tiff to another tiff and see if the file size changes.

When scanning documents, PDF acts as a container and the scanned images are stored as a binary string. Jbig don’t know much about compression within PDF files. Bilevel tiffs may not be compressable. Imagemagic seems to work: Perhaps PDF does not support raster compressed input file. Unless you really need to convert the format, you can just wrap your images in PDF wrappers without converting the compressed data. If we search a bit we find that this means the document uses Deflate or Zip as compression algorithm.

I’ll keep experimenting for now. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Last edited by dowcet on Sat May 02, 2: Imagemaguck I understand it, it surpasses the Group 4 compression which is also bi-tonal, and was designed for faxesand it should work very similar to the bi-tonal JB2 compression in DjVu.


The just use the wrong tools for the job, and the PDF produced is way too large. Sign up using Facebook. IM does not create vector PDFs only raster with a vector shell.

So i need to change the compression type of image to JBIG2. Brian Z 6 However it does show when doing the following if you jbib2 installed the JBIG delegate: The lossless DjVU creation command was missing -a 0. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.

This should remove small tilts introduced while scanning and while writing. This time I intend to invest more time investigating and perfecting this process.
