    PDF Compression




      I have a number of pdf;s that are each around 280kb in size. The content of these pdf's is a small image in the beginning and remaining text. I have to download and view these pdf's in iPad device. Although the size of the pdf is small, but there are a large number of pdf's that are to be downloaded.

      Therfore, it is required to compress the pdf's in such a way that the download is comparatively much quicker.


      Could anyone please suggest a suitable way of compressing the pdf's. Using some of the tools the maximum compression that I can achieve is 26% since the content is mainly text.


      Note: The pdf's are getting created from Offce docs: MSWord/MSPPT

          Reader can't do anything to help. You can use Adobe Acrobat to optimize PDF's (reduce file size) to an extent (depends on the PDF).


          The offer a free 30 day trial for Windows. I would give it a shot and see if it will help.
