How To Reduce the Size Of the Scanned PDF File?

There are several ways to reduce the size of the PDF file , lots of PDF Converters and PDF Optimizers are available which can reduce the size. Scanned Images or Scanned documents in PDF format will normally be of big size due to the high resolution that we scan and due to the color depth we choose. some tips to reduce the size of the pdf file is scanning at a lower resolutions and lowering the colour depth and scanning to Grayscale where ever necessary, that might not be the perfect choice if you are looking for the high qulaity PDF documents.

One thing I can recommend to reduce the file size of the scanned pdf document is to open the original pdf which is of large size in adobe acrobat reader or Adobe Acrobat professional and click on save as option to save another copy of the same file and check the size, you will sure have the file size reduced. this helped me most of the time in reducing the pdf file sizes, there are huge number of softwares available, try Google.

There is good article on how to Reduce PDF File Size at Adobe. For your more information there has been adobe acrobat 9 released recently, you can download the trial versions to check the exciting features in Adobe 9 Pro. Discuss using the Comments section at the bottom.

Thanks!

I tried. It doesn't work with Adobe Reader. I got a file which is of exactly the same size. Not reduced at all.
