You really want to look at
compressing a 1586x2397 pixel (13cm x 20cm) paper document with some
handwriting and lots of creases down to 12k, storing the background and the
text separately so you could probably ditch the background for even further
savings if you just want the text.
You need to get the plugin to appreciate it really and it's all (or gonna
be shortly) jpeg2000 compliant, they say.
If you're going to be doing serious document archiving this looks mighty
cool, there's probably a few other places doing this sort of stuff too, as
usual, it's all thanks to wavelets,
