Does anyone know of an existing set of instructions or discussion on minimizing the file size of pdf's exported from InDesign CS6? I'd like to keep my documents at 300 dpi for printing purposes but do anyhting else I might be able to in order to keep the file size at a minimum.Thanks!
First at all you could try is:
- to export .indd to .idml
- to open in
- to export it to .pdf
2-digit percentage in reducing of size could be expected (depends on file history)
Thanks for the info. I'll start using this method to help reduce the files.
You may loose more weight by making your own PDF presets… The default ones usually have a +50% before downsample… Try making this much tighter…
