Optimizing a PDF
PDF Studio is capable of optimizing PDF documents. Optimizing a PDF
document is useful if you need to compress images or remove objects in
order to reduce the PDF file size. There are many different optimization
options available in PDF Studio.
How to Optimize a PDF document
- On the toolbar go to Document
Tab > Optimize or use the shortcut
key Ctrl + Shift + O (Command + Shift + O on Mac)
- This will display the Optimizer
- Select an Optimizer Profile
or the settings that you wish to use to optimize your document
- Once complete click on Optimize. This will prompt you for a location
to save the document
- Note: If
the document is protected or locked you will not be able to optimize
the document until it is unlocked.
- Once you have set the save location for your document and click
save and your document will be optimized and saved to the location
- After optimization is complete the new file will automatically
be opened and an optimization report will be displayed so that you
can review the results.
Prior to optimizing, the document can be analyzed to determine what
specific document elements including Fonts, Images, Annotations, etc...
are within the document. You can then use the report to determine the
best options to effectively reduce the file size.
Open the Optimizer Settings dialog
and click on the "Analyze" button to generate the report.
