PDF Committed from Capture is much Larger than Original PDF Imported by Import Server (Doc ID 1681615.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 29, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Capture 10g - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


PDF Committed from Capture to WCC is about 10 times the size of the original. Here are the steps a document goes through to get into Oracle WCC repository.

  1. Document gets scanned into a network folder as PDF.
  2. Import Server imports the document with image processing options as JPEG (Quality 50), A4 size, 300 X 300 resolution.
  3. Recognition server performs barcode recognition of barcode with special mask.
  4. Commit server converts the document into PDF Image Only and commits to Oracle UCM 11g.

The final size of the PDF file that gets generated by Capture is almost 10 times the size of the original PDF document.  For example, a 90 KB PDF document gets imported and committed, but results in a PDF file of around 900 KB.
