Any way to take a print-quality PDF and somehow re-process it somehow to make it smaller in file size?<br><br>I don't have access to the original file, btw..<br><br>[color:red]You slap my back, I'll slap yours!</font color=red>
Well, thanks for trying but I don't think any of the tips in Acrobat was quite what I was looking for...their suggestions are things like removing thumbnails and hyperlinks, etc...<br><br>I don't think that's gonna get a 14mb file down to about a meg, which is what the 72-dpi versions of these-sized documents usually work out to be...<br><br><br>[color:red]You slap my back, I'll slap yours!</font color=red>
With Acrobat Pro, under the "Advanced" menu, there's an item called PDF Optimizer that gives you all kinds of downsampling options. I just tried it on the Art Institute's Portland catalog which was 5.5MB and mostly images and took it down to 3.2MB. There were other settings I could have tried, but I wanted to make sure it made significant difference.<br><br>The only thing is that the document needs to NOT have any security (i.e., you're allowed to alter the documentócheck by hitting command+D). If it's not secured, then you can resample the file.<br><br>If it is secure, the only thing I think I could recommend is to print it to a .ps (postscript file) and then use Distiller to try some magic on it.<br><br>
oh, ha. I was actually talking about the help in OS X.<br>anyway, this was the info I was talking about here--->link<br><br>pdfCompress is the app I was thinking of.<br>Maybe it won't work with yours though, if yours is read only.<br><br><br>My Stuff
