I need to email a PDF portfolio. I have tried saving it as a reduced size in Acrobat Pro but it is still too large to email.

Since it is a photography portfolio, I do not want to do anything to reduce the quality of the images.

Any suggestions?

The obvious one is Dropbox etc but as these are potential clients, I do not want to make life hard for them or risk something like their corporate system not allowing Dropbox access etc.

Can you break it up into a number of smaller PDFS and then send a few separate emails?

Setup a website?

Given that you do not want to reduce size/quality of images (fair enough), sending multipart PDFs would be messy so a solution like Dropbox, or your own website is the only answer.

You need to change the save settings so that you are mildy compressing the images to JPEG compression 8 or slightly lower, you also need to not use images that are too high in resolution.  1920 pixels on the longest size is enough for most screens.

You could use winrar and save the pdf file as a multi-part archive. Then instead of one 10M file, you could have 10 1M files sent in 10 emails.

Clients would have to save each attachment and then just click once to extract the pdf from the collection of smaller files.

Right click on file choose compress. It turns into a zip open on most any windows system.

Hang on. Its photos. They may not reduce much size but give it a go.

A large pdf is probably not the best way to share a portfolio. There must be a more comkon professional method. Unless it is a courier pack ; )

Dropbox




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

Upload it to cloud storage, and send a link to who ever needs to view it.

It's the most common method when the clients reside in New York..!

Found a way.

You need to use the "Save As Other - Optimised PDF" in Acrobat Pro and you can then fiddle with the photo sizes.

Using "Save As Other - Reduced Size PDF" which sounds more obvious does not result in the correct outcome!
