When you are emailing a file many a times do you find that the file can not be sent as it is too large? This is when you need to compress the files for emailing them. Compressing PDFs for emailing can be done very simply. You do find that while compressing PDFs for emailing the modern versions of software are those that really do a good job in completing the task. The real goal in compressing PDF files is to get the smallest size possible.
For compressing PDFs for emailing you can do some things to make compression easier and also to make the file size much smaller. The first and the easiest thing that you can do is the restriction of fonts. This is something that is not very difficult to keep in mind when you are creating a file. Sticking with fonts like Arial and times new roman will not require you to embed the fonts and hence you are going in the right direction in compressing PDFs for emailing. There are however some other fonts also that can be used and that do not require embedding. So you can also look at making use of these fonts while you are creating your files.
The next thing that you might need to look into is graphics. Graphics are more complicated than fonts when it comes to compressing PDFs for emailing. You have to keep in mind that the people who are using this might be of two different kinds. The ones who just want to look at it on the screen and the others who want it on printed paper. For those PDFs that are just going to be watched on screen the graphics can be reduced to a dpi of about seventy two to ninety. There may be other things that you will need to look into if you are using both raster as well as vector graphic. The PDF optimizer ought to have settings that will reduce the file size really well. If you do change the settings for the graphics to 72 and also look into the fonts you will go a long way in compressing PDFs for emailing.
