Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Sometimes when we scan a document and the output file is PDF the file size is too big which is very difficult to send as an email attachment. This also happens when you convert word documents into PDF format.
This guide assumes that Adobe Acrobat Professional or Standard is already installed on your computer for PDF conversion.
On your current PDF File click on File then select Print
On the Print window select Adobe PDF as the Printer Name then click on the Properties Tab
On the PDF Document Properties Window under Default Settings drop down, select Smallest File Size.
Click on OK on all open windows. This will start the conversion process. When it's finished this will prompt you to save the file. It is advisable to save the file in a different file name rather than replacing the original copy.
After the conversion you may compare the file size of the original file and the reduced PDF file. The reduced file can now be sent on email attachments easily.
