They're in the "wrong" order because they're sorted alphabetically, not "value" numerically.
(think A, AA, AB, AC, B, BA, BB, BC ...)

The way to avoid the shuffle is to put a leading zero on any single-digit number.

Thus 01, 02, 03 ... 09, 10, 11, 12....

Well Dick, because of you, I will go to sleep tonight a little bit more knowledgable than yesterday. Thank you! Try it to see if it makes sense? I replaced it.

If you're going to zip them, you might as well just use the original JPGs. That lets folks combine them on to fewer pages.
(and if you could create them as PNGs or GIFs, they wouldn't get fuzzy (lossless versus lossy encoding)

I forgot to mention: your second pass at the zp file was successful in terms of first-page-first etc.

The Mac kind'a messes things up by also including the Apple file structure's metadata as "hidden" (to you) files named ._01.pdf (etc)
The period/dot at the beginning of the name tells Apples and Linux systems to not show the file when you do "directory" listings.
(Windows PCs tell the whole dirty truth (if you tell them to, which i do) if you have "show file extensions" turned on)

"How.."

By using your "zip" program to collect them into one zip file (as you did with the PDFs).

JPEGs are already "compressed", so zip won't shrink the total size (it may increase it a bit).
If you're running WinZip, you have control over how "aggressive" the compression is... set it to minimal.

I realize that your AdBlue pages are already edited ("with circles and arrows", to quote Arlo) and done, but here's the difference between JPEG and PNG as file types... (TIFF and GIF are also "lossless")

Here's a bit from your 01.pdf file, magnified 4x to show how blurry the edges of the images and text are:

BobEx1.png

Here's a chunk from my WIS, captured and saved as JPEG:

BobEx4.jpg

Here's the same chunk, but saved as PNG:

BobEx2.png

(added: hmmm.... those two were much more different on my screen... but appear almost matched here on the forum... oh, well :shrug:)

In all cases (of Windows doing a screen grab), the images are in the clipboard as "bit-mapped" (BMP) which creates HUGE files, but with all of the screen pixels accurately retained.
I use Windows' Paint to then tweak and crop (if needed), then i use Save As... to tell it which format to use for saving. JPEG shrinks the file size the most, but it does it by throwing out the "high frequencies" (sharp edges) of the image. TIFF (tagged image file format) and GIF (graphics image format) keep all of the edges, but at the expense of bigger files (TIFF) or reduction of color palette (GIF). PNG creates bigger files than JPEG, which can hit the Forum's 500 KByte file-size limit for individual images. That's not a factor (as much) when you're creating a zip file attachment (30 megabyte limit).
