A PDF document, especially one with many pages and images, can be rather large in size and may cause problems or delays when sending through email. Using the “Reduce File Size” tool that is inherent to Adobe Acrobat will reduce the files size.
Reducing File Size
- Select the "Reduce File Size" icon from Tic Tie & Calculate
- Select the version of Adobe do you want to make the document compatible with
- Click “Ok” and this will allow you to browse out to your PC or network drive. You can then rename the file being saved
IMPORTANT: The amount of shrinkage that you will obtain by using this tool will vary greatly and is directly associated with the settings of the PDF file when it was originally produced in PDF format.
