This prompted me to try something to see if it worked. (BTW my first post,
I am no expert, but hopefully may be of some use to the group)

I have Windows 7 Professional, and use Acrobat Pro 10. I opened a 13 page
document authored in Scribus and exported as a pdf, which was just over 3mb
in size in Acrobat. I then clicked Print, chose Adobe pdf, clicked on
Properties, and then the Adobe pdf settings, changed the Default Settings
to smallest file size, then OK and Print, saving it with an altered file
name. The resulting file was down to just under 700kb.

Looking at both files at 100%, I can hardly see any change of quality of
the images, and none for text. Certainly if your “clientele” have problems
handling larger file sizes in emails, this seems to work for me.

Trying the Save As>Reduced File Size pdf, hardly made any significant
difference in file size, whereas this little procedure certainly did.
