    Default HOw to upload .pdf's - help

    Found interesting article on supercharger conversion of Big 6 in my collection of old Motor Sports/Autocars

    It might be of interest to any Big 6 owners but forum won't let me upload .pdf of this size ( slightly exceeds limit)

    Am currently going through the collection looking for relevant articles from 40's and 50's , scanning them in the hope of uploading them for others, so this may be a recurring moan

    Is there a way around this? I am not especially computer literate, but can do the basics

    How have you scanned them? If to an image format first, it's straightforward to shrink a jpg using most image apps before building the pdf separately. You could consider multiple pdf files as well. If you use Acrobat you can do it with that. Splitting and merging is easy with pdftk.

    You might use ghostscript with a variety of pdf settings possible, or directly use ps2pdf.

    It comes down to what you have available or can easily install on your system.

    Many thanks - I generally have success with .jpg's on this site, it is .pdf's that are harder

    SCanner I used at work only seems to generate .pdf's , so may have to dust off the home scanner.

    Article is only one page , so slicing it up won't help - it is from 1949, when paper was still rationed in UK, so car mags were pretty thin and economical with what they said.

    Shall go and swear at the machine again

    If your PDF is close to forum limit, try zipping the file to get it under. . .

    The Dťesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Dťesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    You could always upload the Pdf to a file sharing site and just post the link.

    Which is probably a no fuss option.

    Thanks for the help chaps!

    Swore foully at the copier for long enough to find a menu hat allowed choice of .jpeg

    Hope that this is legible for all

    Probably more to come once I get into it. Quest was prompted by discussion recently about Gordini formula one cars

    Andrew,

    This has come through a bit small. If you get the jpg to just under 500kb, you can make it a bit bigger ( about 1000 x 800 or so), then zip it up so that AF will allow a 500kb limit rather than a 100kb limit for jpg.

    I use Irfanview to do all these manipulations as it can save files to a file size limit.

    Cheers, Ken

    I have seen that article before. It is a beautiful description of the Citroen's impact at the time.
