You can copy PDF’s. What is the size of the PDF?

Says 43,000 KB.  Document itself is 7 pages.

Is it 43 KB or 43 meg because 43,000 kb is 43 Meg which would be too big.

Says KB, not that I pretend to know the diff.  7 pages doesn’t seem like a huge document to me, but it does contain many photos.  Rather surprised, however, that it is the largest file in my document files, which contains others of similar length.

It sounds like its too big of file to upload. You would have to host it on the cloud and link to it.

Way too complicated for me.  Too bad, as it’s the best research I’ve seen on shooting & loading the .32-40, copied out of an old issue of the Rifle, which I thought would be of interest to others.  I guess I could send it as email attachment, which is something I’ve done before.

You might also be able to compact the pdf depending upon what software you are using.  Adobe has a “reduce file size” feature for pdf’s.

If you send it to me I might be able to downsize it for you.

You could try doing each page separately.

Yes, but I’ve already spent so much time copying first from the mag, then scanning it, I’ve reached the limit of my endurance.  If JWA is willing to downsize it, I’ll let him take the next step.

Here it is with less resolution, next time scan it in greyscale instead of color and it will save as a smaller file. –

Still perfectly legible.  I didn’t purposely scan it in color, but thought I scanned it exactly as I had other B&W documents.  However, the original scan was as .JPG, which I then converted to PDF; obviously screwed up somewhere along the process.  I’ll move your resized PDF to the “Shooting” category.  Thanks a lot, JWA.

Just discovered the “attachments” won’t copy, so can’t move it to a more appropriate category!  I give up!  Defeated once again by technology I don’t understand.

You will have to save it to your computer and then reattach it to the new post.

If you have an image of each scanned page, on newer computers there is an app called “snip & stretch” where you can create a jpg image of anything on your desktop screen.  If you have that app, just hold down the window key, shift key, and “S” key at the same time, the computer screen will darken, then you crop the whatever is on your deskstop screen, then you can save (will save as a relatively small jpg image), that you could then attach and post.  If multiple pages, youd have to create an image of each page and then post each page.   If multiple jpg saves, just name them page 1-whaterver.  Maybe thats an option.
