I'm using Preview in Snow Leopard.

 

Trying to create multipage PDFs from document scans.

 

I'm finding that when the scanned image (tiff, png, jpg) is converted to PDF in Preview the size reduces.

 

Selecting 'View actual size' shows the image with sometimes drastically impaired quality.

 

This does not always happen. I have some images that stay the same size and quality.

 

What factors cause this reduction in size in some images but not in others?

 

I'm not sure but this could be only images that have been scanned by me. If so, what do I need to do to prevent the problem?

 

These are not large images, just standard size pages.

I have all the preferences to view at 100%

 

This is not for printing, only for viewing on-screen.
