Reducing PDF Size

Recommended Posts

My engineer keeps sending me PDF's back that he has stamped and they are always about a third of the size I sent him.  So I asked how he does it.


I have Adobe Acrobat Pro DC:


File --> Save As Other-->Optimized PDF...


I did not change any of the settings, and when I hit OK, I save as the same file name. Might want to read up a bit, but I see no reduction in the visual quality and it greatly speeds up the viewing especially if I have inserted a bunch of PDF files into the layout.


This takes just about 20 seconds.

I'd love to get a developer's input on this - it seems very odd that the PDF's (at least the plans that I print out) are generally almost half the size of the entire plan file! And I have the printer DPI set to 144, too.


Thanks for the tip!
