No file size limits, no ad watermarks - just a free, beautiful and simple online pdf compressor to reduce the size of your PDFs and maintain good quality. This free online PDF compressor allows you to reduce the size of your PDF file without loss of quality. No registration or installation needed. This online PDF compressor allows to compress PDF files without degrading the resolution (DPI), thus keeping your files printable and zoomable.
Editing, zooming of the screen and just saving the file may take several minutes. In addition large file sizes are often the reason of application crashes resulting in the loss of all or part of the work. Using the autosaving feature of Autosaviour plug-in will help you avoid such losses, but does not eliminate the loss of time during the next saving of a large file. Therefore it is important to know how to reduce the file size for ease of use with the minimum of delay. In todays article, you will learn about 9 ways of minimizing the source vector file. This article is also available as a video tutorial: 9 ways to minimize file size in Adobe Illustrator 1. Such selection of options reduces the file size significantly.
That is perfect for most scenarios. But, if your need it you can configure a better quality for the optimized images even if the PDF size will be larger.
Under 'image quality' select 'Good' or 'Best'.
Working in a scenario where higher image resolution is needed? Click 'More options', then select ' ppi', ' ppi' or ' ppi' as the maximum image PPI resolution. Grayscale images For lower PDF sizes, when having a lot of images, you can convert images to grayscale.
Here's an example of a grayscale converted image: To use this option select 'grayscale' as 'image conversion'. Faster PDF compression Processing each image takes time. A document with many images will take longer to compress.
Compressing smaller images has little effect over the overall document size. The larger images are what we want to optimize. Choose 'Faster' and we'll skip smaller images and only compress larger ones, saving time.
Ready to compress your files? While writing this article, I experimented on a rather complex vector artwork Shield and Sword , which contains blend objects, vector texture, transparent objects, gradient meshes and so on. However, this recovery is not necessary if you use Autosaviour plug-in , which can create a backup copy of the file. Using Linked Images Along with vector objects, your artwork may also contain raster images.
You can place them in the document or they can be the result of certain processes. For example, raster effects after the Expand Appearance command convert into raster images. Any raster graphic in your Illustrator document can be of two types: Linked Images or Embedded Images. Using the Linked Images only can greatly reduce the file size, especially when dealing with large images of high resolution.
If you embed this image in a document, the file size after saving will be Your file may already contain Embedded Images.
If you are working in earlier releases of the application, you can use Rasterino plug-in , which has a similar function — Link Images. Cropping of Unneeded Embedded Image Data In cases where we still need to use Embedded Images, we can delete an unneeded part of an image using Rasterino. After selecting the desired options in the dialog box, Rasterino will delete parts of the image that have no significant information.
We can also crop the image by selecting the necessary part, using the Crop Image Tool of Rasterino or using the Crop Image button in the Rasterino panel. No doubt that cropping part of an embedded image will reduce the size of the entire file.
Reducing the Resolution of Raster Effects You can reduce the resolution of all raster effects, which have been applied in the current document. In addition to minimizing the file size, it will also accelerate the process of displaying graphics on the screen while zooming.
After finishing with the file you can set the desired value for the resolution.
Removing excess points The number of anchor points also affects the size of your file. In my opinion, this feature is good to use for rough processing of the paths, such as reducing the number of points of vector textures when there is no need to maintain the shape of objects.
This will reduce the number of points in your entire document or selection to a set tolerance that can be changed in the panels preferences. Here you can see how VectorFirstAid produces a higher quality end result compared to the native Simplify feature.
But when it comes to accuracy, such as removing excess points of vector outlines, it may be better to use the Smart Remove Brush Tool VectorScribe. This tool allows you to literally sweep excess points away like a broom! You can even use the pressure sensitivity of your tablet to control the tolerance.
