Create Sharp, Readable PDF in InDesign That's Under 5 MB
Posted on 2011-09-05
I recently scanned 30 pages from four differently-sized sources. Each page is a TIF that's approximately 15 MB. I need to combine all of these items into one 30-page PDF that's under 5 MB and readable.
The good news is that it's just text (smallest is probably 9 point) with some colored words here and there. What would be the best way to handle this? Paste them into an InDesign file and then use the "smallest file size" feature in Acrobat once I save it out of InDesign? I really need this to look nice and be readable, so any help would be most appreciated!
I'm on a MacBook Pro using InDesign CS5, Photoshop CS5 and Acrobat Pro.
