    Is there a way to post more than the four in one file that seems to be the limit?
    Say is there a way to combine 10 or 12 into one file, maybe a PDF?

    I have some old Sales brochures I'd like to upload but don't want to overload the forum if that is a problem.

    Maybe is a posting site that could be used and a link put in an email? Any suggestions welcome!

    This is 12 pages from a service manual that I have in .pdf format.
    When you click on it, it will automatically download of your browser.
    There is another way to do it if you only have a printed brochure.
    I don't know what the size in KBs limit to post in a thread is.
    To view them you need to have a .pdf viewer installed in your computer.
    I don't how to view it with a phone.
    I simply extracted them with Acrobat DC and saved as a separate file.

    This is the same .pdf manual converted to .JPEG.
    The HEF server has 4 page limit it seems.

    These are the same pages after I converted the .pdfs to .jpgs and then combined them.
    There may be a server size limit for a single .JPG image like this one.

    Ken;
    I think you could copy the pages of your brochures with a scanner and save the scans as a .JPEGs.
    Then use an online .JPG combiner like I did.

    Sound like an idea, do you have a link to the "combiner" you used? Also any recommendation on the resolution for the scans?

    I used this one --->https://www.filesmerge.com/merge-jpg
    I use an HP Envy 6000 printer with the default setting for scanning.
    I never gave any thought about changing it.
    You could scan a page and then view it.
    If it looks as good as the page in the brochure, that is as good as it will get. IMHO of course.

    Good day
    With a mac if you open a PDF file in finder with the "Thumnail" option you can join additional PDF files by simply dragging those into the last thumbnail & save. If you do not have a Mac download "Master PDF Editor" I can recommend that one but do not click on update as you will get charged for it.
    Kind regards

    I looked at the Master PDF Editor website.
    Is the watermark that the free version inserts very noticeable ?

    Good day Tinkerer
    I have used the subscribed version for some time, initially the free version is good to try and see if it suits your needs. I have never published one of the free PDF's, so I'm not sure how visible the watermark is. If you make use of a Linux distro there is so much free software, I guess there will be a completely free application to do what you need.
    Kind regards

    As an experiment I have opened Libre Office (Free office package) made a simple presentation of Zorin and simply exported this in PDF format.
    It has only taken a few moments, the Zorin platform runs without virus protection - updates are free of charge. The software included is comprehensive, in fact I have removed a lot of programs I will never use. You can download a free version and run it from a memory stick a little slow maybe but easy to try, and why not it costs nothing.
