I know you can reduce the file size in previous versions of Acrobat but I can find how to do it in Acrobat DC. Please help.
Look at the menu File > Save as Other...
Thank you for your help. I tried save as other but it only gives me the option to save as a text, word or excel file. I need to save as a pdf still just a small file size.
You must use Adobe Acrobat, not Acrobat Reader. Acrobat Reader can't reduce file size.
Thanks. I'm using the trial version. so if I purchase Acrobat DC will option become available to me?
The option is available in the trial version. Make sure that you don't use Acrobat Reader.
Yep. That was my problem. Thank you so much.
The SAVE AS OTHER doesn't work in the paid version of ADOBE ACROBAT DC. Instead it INCREASED my file. Do you have another suggestion?
Try a other PDF file.
I tried multiple files. This is the purchased version, nothing happens. The files would not change size, none of them...
You cannot guarantee files will shrink. It isn’t magic, it does very specific things. For instance, high resolution images are reduced in resolution. You cannot make files smaller just because you have made a requirement to do so, they are already highly compressed.
I've googled this for Adobe DC (not reader), trying to find an answer on a deadline, and I keep landing back on this adobe page. So this question is on the adobe website and adobe can't give us a sentence or two on how to reduce file size? Adobe, if people need help, maybe you should be answering a question when we pay you a lot of money every month in perpetuity for your product. I know you have a manual that states how to do it. Please paste it into the convo, thanks.
I did figure out how to use this. It reduced my file size from 22.4mb to 22.13mb woohoo! It almost made a difference.
