If you are using OS X, you can open the pdf in Preview, and do a SaveAs... In the resulting dialog, you can change the Quartz Filter from 'None' to 'Reduce file size'. In the example I just tested, the file size went from 2.8 MBytes to 148 kb. I don't use Acrobat anymore, but I'm pretty sure that the same thing can be done there. george On Aug 9, 2008, at 7:44 AM, Karen Bindash wrote: > On Aug 3, 10:34 am, ragfield <ragfi... at gmail.com> wrote: >> File > Print Selection > Save As PDF causes the graphic to be >> rasterized.
