Many file formats are notorious for the amount of space they consume. A lot of time is wasted in a long download and becomes expensive both in terms of time and money. There are many reasons to reduce file size: sometimes in order to obtain more disk space, to pack the files into a modest USB drive, to make the process of download faster or to stay within the restrictions of the size of e-mail attachments .When the files are compressed it becomes easier for the user to transfer thus increasing efficeincy and reducing the time it takes to access and view them. It therefore becomes important for both the commercial and individual users to reduce the file size.

For the rest, one can employ the Images panel to select compression choices for color, grayscale, and monochrome. The user can make use of Save As instead of Save when done. By doing so he will ensure that the entire file is redone, the file has retained its original name at the same time maximized efficiency and minimizing the file size. Another method is to first select Advanced and then the PDF Optimizer. Then one can choose the Audit Space Usage button. The audit results indicate the bytes utilized by each element and its percentage contribution to the total file size .The audit accounts for the total number of bytes used by fonts, images, bookmarks, forms, also revealing the total file size. The audit can assist one to key out efficient ways to trim the extra bulge by pointing out disproportionately large elements.
