Hi, since you don't give us an example I can only try to reduce the size with my own example plt = ContourPlot[Sin[x*y], {x, -Pi, Pi}, {y, -Pi, Pi}]; FileInformation[Export["i:/temp/ctest.eps", plt]] gives {File -> "I:\\temp\\ctest.eps", FileType -> File, Date -> 3425476087, ByteCount -> 2688623} while plt1 = ContourPlot[Sin[x*y], {x, -Pi, Pi}, {y, -Pi, Pi}, MaxRecursion -> 0, PlotPoints -> 64, Method -> {"Refinement" -> {"CellDecomposition" -> "Quad"}}] FileInformation[Export["i:/temp/ctest1.eps", plt1]] gives {File -> "I:\\temp\\ctest1.eps", FileType -> File, Date -> 3425476179, ByteCount -> 679263} the last file is nearly 4 times smaller and plt2 = ContourPlot[Sin[x*y], {x, -Pi, Pi}, {y, -Pi, Pi}, MaxRecursion -> 0, PlotPoints -> 32, Method -> {"Refinement" -> {"CellDecomposition" -> "Quad"}}]; FileInformation[Export["i:/temp/ctest2.eps", plt2]] gives a nearly 9 times smaller *.eps file. So you have to play around a with the PlotPoints and MaxRecursions option. How ever since the refinement is adaptive, the size reduction depend on the function you try to plot.
