Camscanner is one of the most popular scanner applications sold round the world. For those with many items to scan, or need higher quality images, the app is often used with a scanning stand like ScanJig Pro.

In addition, documents are often saved in PDF format and stored in the cloud. If you have many documents the PDF file size needs to be as efficient as possible.

To reduce document file size, make sure you have good lighting, avoid casting a shadow on the document. Also, try using the Grayscale setting in Camscanner’s “Single” capture mode. We have found this can significantly reduce the final PDF file size.
