  • Smallest pdf size

    I am trying to make a PDF the smallest file size possible without giving up image quality.

    Basically I am printing on a 600 dpi production laser with variable data as well and I need my PDF to be smaller or it bogs the machine down.

    If I try and output the PDF from in design in low res I just lose quality.

    in help??

    Re: Smallest pdf size

    What is the content of the document your are working with? Text?
    Raster images? Vector images? Was it entirely authored in InDesign or
    did you use other tools like Photoshop? What version of InDesign?

    What are you requirements for "image quality"? What are the images of?
    What type of printer is being used? Is it PDF native?

    We really need a LOT more information for the best answer...

    As a general answer, use the PDF Optimizer feature of Adobe Acrobat or
    try 3rd party solutions such as Apago's PDF Enhancer.
