Tip for scanning music

I just got myself "da whole package": a new Epson all-in-one printer; an ASUS TF701T, MobileSheets, and.. (drats, forgot about the page-turn pedal :-) ....
A "one time gig" came in so I thought I would give it a shot and experiment with different scan resolutions - i tried 600dpi and then 300dpi which cut the size in half, but still a hefty 3-6megs.
Next I tried .tiff which produced a 300kb size, so, is there anything you guys know that makes either choice better ?

You didn't say if you're letting the printer export a pdf file. When I did that with my Epson the file was huge also. Now I just scan to computer and use PDF Creator to convert [print] the file to a pdf.

No. I tried letting the scan app (running on a Mac btw) to pack all in one .pdf which came out too big.
Then I tried using "Preview" which did a better job, but still is hampered by the big pics resulting from the scan.

Yes, I selected, B&W 600 dpi, then 300, still big. That's when I selected "Text" and it produced the .tiff image.

I guess it's all about experimenting with the settings, mainly on the scan application (which is very simple - or too simplistic) on the Mac.

Thanks for the replies.
