Default Scanning Upload for Set M

Hi,

Now I successfully work in an office and all that but we are in the process of uploading documents for SET M ILR.

It says to do this in black and white but the scan we have only does it in colour. I cannot seem to find a function to change these to b&w etc only for the printer.

Does anybody know how strict this is?

As long as we keep the file size to below 6MB. Will this still be acceptable in colour?

Actually we also paid the £45 document scanning service fee but have decided to do upload ourselves anyway ,even if our fee was a waste of money.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thank you

the point about colour is only for file size.
my pdf software has a function that shrinks file sizes, by reducing quality etc--they are still perfectly legible (I can't tell the difference, to be honest), but much smaller.

I just replied to another thread about ILR after 2nd FLM with more detail about my experience from yesterday if you’d like to read it. In part it says...

Looking back, I would just let them scan it. Yes, you’ll be there a little longer but it took me WAY longer to do it myself. Plus it seems they have more leniency; such as not having to scan each page. If you’ve paid for the service, maybe just let them do it. I was in and out with all scanning and biometrics done in 45 mins.

Also, I could see her scan each page so I felt confident about what was being sent.
