I have a 40 page journal for my grandmother that I would like to put in her memories section. Is it too long or inappropriate to put something that big there?
@Alan Martin Cranney
Memories> Gallery> + (to add a memory) shows: "We support .jpg, .tif, .bmp, .png, .pdf, .mp3, .m4a, and .wav, up to 15MB."
So yes depending on the size of the file you may not be able to upload all 40 pages. On the other hand 40 pages is not super long and you may be able to upload the entire journal as one file.
Workaround: You could upload the journal file(s) in parts if the filesize exceeds the allowed 15MB. For example, if you determined pages 1-20 <15MB and pages 20-40<15MB - you could upload the journal in two files/parts to Memories. Title the memories something like - grandmother's journal part1 and grandmother's journal part2 - this would provide notice of the sequential order.
It might be easier to create an EBook (or donate a copy of the journal to FamilySearch) - or otherwise have the full journal uploaded on some platform and refer to a Source/link to attach that reference to your grandmother (I hope this makes sense to you).
best to have it in one PDF format. (and not just 100 or so individual jpg images)
This is a great site that allows you to compress/split pdf files so you can get under the 15MB limit.
another thing to consider is that the higher the resolution you scan at - the larger the files will be.
for just a handwritten journal 200 dpi should be high enough,
The dpi is an option when you initiate your scan.
