Yeah, there's a way. You'll need to resize the image if you have a graphic software at hand like GIMP or Photoshop. Some software's have the ability to save in a certain quality so that's another way of reducing the file size if you do not want to reduce the image size's.

Yeah, if you scan at a lower DPI, the image file size will be smaller. But, the downside to that is that the quality will also be worse the lower the DPI.
