A PDF is something we have to use in our daily lives, be it for work or schooling purposes. A PDF sure brings a lot of comfort to our lives.
We doubt there is anybody in this world that wishes to upload picture by picture rather than being able to upload everything all together in a single click with the help of some easy tricks in the book.
Are you somebody who’s looking for easy ways to reduce the size of your PDF file? Here are some hacks for you!
Avoid Scanning Your PDF
It’s a common misconception that to create PDFs, you need to print everything out and scan it together. Electronically converted files are generally much smaller in size than scans.
You only ever need to scan documents that exist in paper form only. Individual documents can be quickly combined as PDFs using software to avoid any need to print out documents to combine them in an original manner.
Save Them As Reduced PDF Files
If your file is still very large after you’ve created it electronically, rather than by scanning, there are still some steps you can take. The simplest is to re-save your file as a reduced-size PDF.
This method is quick and simple but is warned that it will reduce the quality of images and will remove digital signatures.
Reduce The Size As You Save In MS Word
In MS Word, to convert a document to PDF, you use the Save As option. This option generally produces a fairly small file, depending on the number of images in your document. However, if you find that your Word-converted PDF is still too large, there is a further option in Word that will produce a significantly smaller file.
Here’s how to use it:
Open the Word document you are going to convert to PDF. Click on the File button and then Save As. In the Save as type menu, select PDF and enter your preferred file name. Here’s the extra step: where it says Optimize for at the bottom of the dialog box, select Minimum size (publishing online).

Use A Print-to-PDF Tool
Other (non-Adobe) PDF tools generally contain features that will reduce the size of your PDF. However, if you’re looking for a free option, there are some available. Currently, the most downloaded free PDF creator (according to download.com) is PrimoPDF.
Once you’ve installed PrimoPDF, simply open the PDF you wish to compress (in Acrobat Reader, or a web browser, for example), press Ctrl+P to open the print dialog, select PrimoPDF from the list of available printers, and then click Create PDF.
