Greetings All,
I'm considering upgrading to Abbyy version 9.0,
but am curious if you have any idea how much
larger is "somewhat larger" when one uses the
process of scanning to TIFF and then loading the
file into FineReader as an image. It sounds like
it might not be the 10 times larger that Jim
Marks experienced, but do you think it's 2 times,
3 times, etc.? Not looking for absolute figures,
just wondering if the size is significant enough
to not upgrade at this point.

Thoughts? To upgrade or not to upgrade? We are
currently using version 7.0 and storage is not currently an issue.
