PDF size is incredible, please compress

Asked by AndreK

Hi. Thanks for the great, easy scanning tool.
When scanning 2 pages t 300dpi I got 4,7MB (in 2 jpeg files)
Exporting to PDF resulted in 57MB

Is there somewhere compression/quality can be set ? - if not - please add in future.
Thank you.

I noticed this as well, and it seems to be a regression in 11.10. In 11.04 the JPEG and PDF exports produced much smaller files.

Please check if this is due to Bug #853648
