The Foolproof Way to Compress a PDF That’s Too Huge to Email
Hello, attachment issues
So, you owe your realtor/accountant/boss a super-important and urgent document, but every time you attach it to an email and click send, you get a bounce back message: File size too large. (Seriously, there’s nothing more frustrating.) Here, a genius work-around.
What you do: Visit the website Smallpdf.com and choose the option Compress PDF. (It’s tough to miss since it’s a bright red square on the homepage.) There, you’ll see the option to drag and drop your chunky file.
What happens next: Give it a few seconds to upload the file. When it’s done, you’ll get a notice: We compressed your 30 MB file to 3 MB. (Seriously, give it a check and you’ll see the quality remains top-notch but also email-friendly.)
Then, send on. Email problems, schmemail problems.
