    My PDF file cannot be reduced

    I have created a PDF file, but it cannot be reduced. I have photos and other scanned documents in the file. Is there a way to compress it?

    you can try various setting to optimize it in Acrobat Pro to reduce file size.

    Use pdfoptimizer in acrobat pro or print your document to a pdf printer.

    Sokan: what application did you use to create that PDF?
    What is the purpose of it? Is it for press, proofreading, preview etc?

    Would the quality still be the same? I tried flattening a PDF to reduce file size but the colour slightly changes.

    In adobe pdf printer you have different options for printing. You must choose what is the best for you. If you want a pdf for viewing the size of your pdf is lower than you if you choose a pdf for press.

    If, in general when asking questions, you give a bit more detail about your problem then people are able to provide more focussed information to help you with your specific situation :)

    Like someone said: what is the purpose for (this version of) the PDF?

    It of course depends on the job and contents of the file but:

    - If it's for print I myself in general output a 150 ppi ZIP compressed PDF to not lose quality;
    - If it's for review I, again in general, output a 100 ppi with JPEG high compression.

    If you have a PDF you can try to get a balance between size and quality (according to what you'll use it for) in Acrobat Pro X through:

    - File/Save As/Reduced Size PDF
    With which you can convert it to another PDF version.

    or better:
    - File/Save As/Optimized PDF
    With which you can:
    . Audit the space usage in the file, for instance Images, Fonts, etc.
    . Re-optimize Images;
    . Decide which fonts are embedded and preferably unembed;
    . Re-flatten transparency at selected dpi;
    . Discard Objects;
    . Discard other unused data.

    Cheers

    You have to know...

    You have to know that compresion of Acrobat file is not on Photos or images, that mean that your images files must be reduced on it's original program. Take in mind the document propouse, it's for print or for web or for a presentation then apply the compresion.
