Why are my pdf export files so large? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I'm working on a single page document with 9 images that were taken from webpages (google images actually), and minimal text. One of the images is 3.3mb, but the others are in the +/-200kb range. All of the images are scaled down within OG shapes.
My OG file is 20.5 mb and my pdf export is 18.5mb. Why are they so large??? If I export to a jpeg (at 300dpi) it comes out to 2.5mb which seems more realistic. Am I doing something wrong with images in OG?

Thanks!
 
Ive noticed this as well, if you add screen shots or images the pdf's get huge quickly. I use preview and shrink them with no loss of quality.
