    Multiple vectors - want reduced PDF size

    emmaTPR12 Level 1

      Hi there

       

      My PDFs, created from Indesign, primarily live on the web but also need to print out comfortably on home printers. I usually export them at around 150dpi to offer the best of both worlds. We have recently begun to incorporate vector illustrations and the PDF sizes have leapt up from approx 400kb to around 4mb. Our web team likes to keep file sizes down and are not going to be keen on the larger sizes. I thought that vector files were usually small so I don't understand why the PDFs are so much bigger when they're present. I do not want to allow rasterisation. Any practical suggestions on keeping the file sizes down? I'm using CS6.

       

      Thank you.
