If you scanned your document(s) and the file is larger than 16 mb, try rescanning in black and white and not more than 300 dpi resolution. Many scanners are set by default to scan in full color or grayscale, which look better than black and white but make for large files. Refer to your scanner's manual for instructions on how to change the scan settings.
