If you are using the Standard version and not just Reader, then under File there is "Reduce File Size". It will resave the file smaller (you may want to rename so you keep both files).

How to solve the problem of undesired changing size of printing only in PDF file formats?


If you're saying this happens to PDF's you download from web sites the only thing I can suggest is to uninstall and reinstall Adobe Acrobat, as something has gone horribly wrong with it. PDF stands for portable document format, it's sole purpose is to transmit documents in a way that always prints the same. If it's not doing that, it's broken.

If these are PDF's you are creating, by "printing" to a virtual printer that generates PDF, there's some issue with that virtual printer software's settings. Without knowing what it is, I couldn't guess. Try PDFMachine by Broadbear Software, it's excellent.

Reduce the file size of a PDF file


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.

Scanned documents' size is too large (the least I got was 600kb), how can I scan a document to a PDF with the normal size of 200kb?


You need to install a PDF writer program first. There are quite a few freeware PDF writer programs on the Internet you can download one such as CutePDF.
Scan your document the click on File - Print and select the PDF writer as the printer device. Then name and save the PDF file.

Problem with size of scanned document using HP laserjet 3380


It depends also on what you are scanning....half tones, pictures etc. but the easiest way to control the file size of PDF's is to change the resolution setting. Also referred to as the quality setting. These are settings like Super Fine, Fine, Standard. It should be right on your control panel. It is the same setting you can change when sending a fax. If your default setting is Fine for example, changing it to standard will use a lower resolution and reduce the file size. In other words the higher resolution/quality setting you use make the file size much larger.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Lexmark 7100 scan to .pdf makes file 23 times bigger than usual


> it should be 2-300K

Only if you use Adobe Acrobat (full version) to create the PDF.

All the "text" in the PDF will still be encoded as "scalable text fonts",
rather than as bitmaps.

Anything you "scan" will just be zero and one values,
and the size of the file will be proportional to the amount of "black" (and/or colour) in the scanned image.

I scanned a document, but when I go to attach the file, it stays in attaching files forever??


Greg, Do you mean that when you want to send it by email it keeps attaching the file forever? If yes then check the size of the scanned document. What happens is that the moment you attach a document to an email Windows start sending it to the email server and that takes time as uploading is slower than downloading. And if the file a large one as scanned documents can be, then it will take that much longer. Try a smaller document first. Size wise small document. If that works fine then you can try larger documents. yes it may be time consuming but there is no price for mental satisfaction. To reduce the size of the scanned document, reduce the pixels in settings of the scanner. or reduce the page size. You will find the document reduced many times over.

Scanning docs & size of pdf files on Mac w/HP l7680 All-in-one


The scanner produces a "picture" of the document, much as if you laid it flat on a table and took a picture of it with your digital camera. If you did this, your .jpg from the camera would be several hundred K at a minimum - comparable to the file size off the scanner. That's why the file is so big, it contains a picture and not text data - even though it's still a .jpg file.
If you reduce the scan resolution you will save space, but at the expense of legibility of the document image. To get it down to the smallest possible size, you will need to run the scanned image through OCR ( Optical Character Recognition ) into a Word document for example, and then print it out to a .pdf file. If you have a clean source document with few graphics this isn't as difficult as it may seem. Microsoft Office has an excellent OCR process known as Document Imaging. You need to carefully proof read the result but with a clean input Document Imaging is amazingly accurate in Office 2007.
In short, there is no easy solution to your problem.
