This thread is intended as a forum in which instruction will be offered and discussion will
be encouraged regarding scans and the factors which affect their quality and therefore there suitability for submission.
Also, tips, tools, etc. may be offered both by staff and members in order to aid others in their efforts to upload
better and even the highest quality scans. Those who have had a scan deleted and are in need of more information may
post a request here for help, however, it is important, as the thread grows, to look through it to see if your query has
already been addressed.
Please Note, members should feel welcome and encouraged to post some of their helpful hints
and techniques here for others who may be having difficulties or other scan-related issues.
This first post will be to share with you a handy compression tool, the link to which is offered by Anther:
Quote by AntherCaesium is a useful program that give you the possibility to reduce the size of your scans without losing too much quality, you can chose the final quality you want.
After you download and install it, you can immediately use it. Open an image with the program and then on bottom left choose the percentage of quality you want to keep.
Personally, I suggest to not go under 75%, stay or go over 80% would be better if possible.
