I just converted a folder of scanned tiffs to pdf and used a program
called "Combine PDFs" it will take a wide varity of filetypes and
convert them into one pdf. afterwards i found out that the pdf's are
way to big this way. the i redid the thing with acrobat pro and they
were much smaller. had to do with the parser. Combine PDF's made
everything into a color document, acrobat kept the b/w version.
