    How to Reduce PDF File size

    One of the downsides to creating a great PDF is the resulting large file size. Bloated PDFs take up too much space, are very inconvenient to the user, and can even slow down a computer. Luckily, there are ways to get rid of that excess baggage.
    When attempting to reduce file size, you may want focus on removing disposable objects and reducing the size of images. Adobe Acrobat 11 Pro offers access to some of the most convenient options for controlling and optimizing the elements that go into your PDF. If you need to shrink PDF file sizes down, you can try three different methods.

    Use the Save As command in Adobe Acrobat 11 Pro:

    1: Choose Save As from the File menu.
    2: Give your file a name and select a location to save it in.
    Instead of just adding on the changes you make with the regular Save function, the Save As option will shrink PDF file sizes by re-writing the entire file into a smaller one and eliminate the bloat.

    Use Adobe Acrobat 11 Pro’s PDF Optimizer tool:

    1: In Adobe Acrobat 11 Pro, go to File > Save As Other… > Optimized PDF…

    2: The PDF Optimizer dialog will open. From here, you can go through the options section by section, selecting what to cut out from your PDF that usually adds to the bloated size.

    Note that in the Settings dropdown you can optimize your PDF for Standard, Mobile, or Custom. Here is a look at the Standard settings.

    Images - Specify image properties for Color, Grayscale and Monochrome images like compression, quality and resolution.

    Clean Up - Use these options for deleting useless elements that are obsolete or unnecessary for your intended use of the PDF.
