Best. Game. Ever.
I wrote nanDECK and BGG1tool
Not sure where to post this.
I've made a 70 card deck using nandeck.
The jpgs are ~90KB each but the total deck pdf size is coming out at 256Mb (roughly 3.6 MB per card).
How do I go about getting the total size down to something like 7 MB? eg 100kb per card
Hi, I'm sorry for not answering you before (in the guild's thread).
The cards are created as bitmaps, so the resulting pdf can be very big.
I made a test with a 100KB image for 70 cards and I obtained a 58MB pdf (with the standard 300 DPI setting). Maybe (as FNH1 suggests) you're using a DPI command for an higher value?
Of course you can decrease the size (and quality) with a DPI=150 (or lower) command.
I can also set the PDF compression level in the creation, in the next version of the program I can add an option so you can choose the level.
