Currently if I export my map to a PDF in ArcMap 10.2, I end up with a PDF that is like 32 MB of data. Our MS Outlook email system caps us off at 15MB per email, so I end up having to open the newly exported PDF map and selecting 'Save As' and 'Reduced size PDF' from the adobe menu.
My question is, is there a way to export a reduced size pdf of my map from ArcMap directly without sacrificing the overall detail and clarity of the image?
My current settings for the export are as follows: 600dpi, Best
I typically export maps with a lot of small print on them and I need the clarity to be fantastic, when I save the 32MB pdf as a reduced size pdf I typically end up with something right around 1MB which is great in terms of size. I just feel like there must be a way to streamline this process.
