Easily reduce the size of any PDF.

Here’s a quick and easy way to reduce the size of a PDF that’s too big to share or takes up too much storage on your computer or device.

Some PDFs are very large, especially if they have a lot of pages. Whether you’re running out of storage space or need to send a file for work, school, or personal use, it’s often necessary to reduce the file size beforehand. Adobe Acrobat online services make it easy to compress and reduce PDFs in just minutes, from anywhere and using any web browser.

It takes just a few steps to make a PDF file size smaller.

While you can use the same process on any device or computer, keep in mind that the interface may look slightly different on each as you complete the following steps:

  1. Click or tap on the “Select a file” button.
  2. Choose the file from your device, or from a cloud service like Google Drive. It must be no larger than 500 MB.
  3. Your file will upload and compress.
  4. Download it or sign in to share it with someone else.

Now that your file is a more reasonable size, it will be much easier to work with, plus you’ll have more free space on your computer or device. For even more options on managing compression, plus many other functions, explore everything you can do with Acrobat online services.
