How to quickly reduce the size of a PDF document on your Mac computer

how to reduce the size of a pdf

If you're reading this post, you've obviously run into the problem of uploading files to a form you are filling or you're running out of storage on your mac and you are searching for a fast fix. The all too common "exceeds the maximum upload size for this site" error when uploading an HTML file (or some other form of a file) can be very irritating. When you compress a PDF file on your Mac, the document should never be destroyed. It shouldn't take a long time, either. If you need to shrink PDF files and take longer than a few seconds (for most files), that's an issue. However, it is essential to note that doing so can often reduce the quality of the original PDF.

If you'd like a high-quality PDF document for work or assignment, you might be better off using another space-saving process, such as saving it to a cloud-based storage system or an external hard drive. As long as you know which file you want to reduce, it should be a fast and simple process:

1. Open the PDF if Preview is not your default program, right-click the PDF, then choose "Open with" preceded by "Preview."

3. You can see a pop-up window displayed in the top-centre portion of the PDF by pressing the drop-down menu next to "Quartz Filter" and choosing "Reduce File Size."

4. Click "Save."
