not a graphic designer or student or even hobbyist..
I have the full suite of Adobe CC at my disposal
My wife's friend has to submit some documents for some official business / studies. Problem is that to "get" these documents she has to submit some PDF's of her grades to the institute she studied which is in India.
She sent me a bunch of PDF's varying from 400 to 800 kb in size. They were scanned using camscan.
I've tried to reduce the size of the documents using native features in Acrobrat Pro and got the 400 kb pdf to 200
I then tried opening the file in Indesign using the place method and saving it using the highest compression methods available. Even then it didn't change in size from the Acrobat compression.
For now i've asked her friend to scan her documents using a proper scanner and I hope that would help..?
Does anyone have any tips, I was thinking of asking her to send raw pics that I could compress then just turn into PDFs.
The Uni in India only accepts 100kb file size of PDFs and nothing else which seems like madness to me, but heyho.
