Lots of luck.

The size of an image is a direct function of two things: the actual size (in pixels) of the image, and the type of image it is.

So... if your images are bmp or tif files, you can save them as either jpg or png or even gif files and save quite a bit in size.

If you reduced the size to fit a page while you were creating the base document (that is, if you inserted the images into a Word document, and then saved it as a PDF file), you can use a program like The Gimp (which is free) or Photoshop or Fireworks to reduce the images to the exact size you want for the page (figure about 75 pixels per inch of width), and then insert them. If you have a 2200 px by 1500 px image and insert it through Word on an 8.5 x 11 page, the image is still going to be several mb; by reducing it to nominally 525x360, it will look the same in your PDF, but would be maybe 189k as opposed to 3.3 mb in size.

Otherwise, you're stuck; it's the nature of the PDF beast.
