    Is there a way to shrink the size of a pdf document?

    Ive got a pretty graphic intensive 7mb pdf that started as a 50 mb photoshop doc.

    Need to shrink document size.

    any help will help

    What version of Acrobat are you using? In Acrobat 6, you can go to File/Reduce File Size.

    ASSUMING that you are using this ON-LINE only, go back to Photoshop and call up the original file. Do a SAVE_FOR_WEB routine and save at a high resolution. Try several and see what size you get on each file. Now, OPEN and COPY the JPEG or PNG file you saved and paste it into whatever document you are trying to save as .pdf. SAVE as the .pdf format and compare the size of the new doc to the old. It should be MUCH smaller.
