    Importing Illustrator files into InDesign

    jobatstone

      Hi, I'm after some InDesign/Illustrator help... I work in InDesign and create documents which often has a lot of illustrator filesin them. Everything seems to work ok and I definitely prefer to put in vector graphics then raster them, however when it comes to creating a PDF of the document it end up being massive. I think it has something to do with the illustrator files that I place into InDesign, but I'm not sure how to make the illustrator files reduce in size when it comes to PDF-ing them from InDesign.

       

      Is there any simple tricks when saving the illustrator file? Would it be better to save them as PDF's? Or does that not make any difference?

       

      Any tips would be gratefully received!!
