How can I resize an entire PDF document?
Posted on 2009-05-19
I have Adobe CS4 design premium, and I need to resize a 17"x11" PDF catalog to 11"x8.5". If there is a way to do this in Acrobat, I haven't found it and I've looked pretty hard. I don't want to have to edit 1 page at a time in Illustrator, but if that's the only way, then so be it (I know how to do this, I just don't want to).
The original document is 127 MB (ridiculous) and I've reduced it all the way down to 10 MB without affecting screen viewing quality. I need to get the file down to around 2-3 MB, but for some reason, neither Acrobat's optimization program nor it's reduce file size program will downsample the 300 dpi images. (that's another story all together)
So, in conclusion, I need to reduce the dimensions of the entire document at one time in order to improve viewing experience and download time.
