PDF file too big to upload

Jul 29, 2012 9:36 PM

A website said my PDF file is too large to upload. Can I make it a little smaller?

    What is the PDF - a scanned document?  If so, Adobe Acrobat can possibly optimize it and make it much smaller.  Adobe Reader does not have such a capability.

    You can do that with Acrobat as well.

     

    Do you have Acrobat?  Another option would be http://createpdf.acrobat.com/ but I am not sure if it can do the optimizing.

    Rescan the documents at a lower resolution and scan greyscale rather than color. This should shrink the pdfs considerably. Many Scanners come with graphics programs that can convert the scans you have already made, but if not as Pat mentioned Acrobat can do this for you.
