Create super small PDF files
Authored by: Stephen Macklin on Feb 01, '07 06:42:49PM

I frequently have to create PDFs from Adobe Illustrator files. I have good luck using the PDF printer. It basically runs the file through Distiller and uses whatever the most recent Distiller settings were. Unless I need it otherwise I always leave it set for "Smallest File Size" and get large (90mb or more) files under 1000K. Files in the 50mb range are well under 500k.

They are not print quality, but easily good enough and small enough to send to send to clients as a proof.
