  • Sending large PDF file through email...help?

    I scanned a 241 page document into a PDF and need to email it. However, none of my email accounts, including my work account, will allow me to send a file that big. It's 143 mb. I have already tried compressing it into a zip and that only brought it down to 123mb.

    Is there a way I can turn it into an HTML? Like a link. Or is there something else I can do? I need to email or at least send someone a link to this document.

    Thanks in advance!

    Do you have the full version of Acrobat, or just the free reader program?

        You can try clicking on File -> Reduce File Size to see if that gets you anywhere. In some cases it actually makes the file larger.

        I'll take a peek in Acrobat and see what you can do.

            They require you to pay for their service to send big files. I was trying to get around it since I only want to send this one file this one time. But I'll remember that site. Thanks

                You could always do any of the following:

                Break it up into smaller PDFs. (Copy the file and then remove pages from each copy).

                Do a File -> Save As, and change the file type to some other format. Most of these formats will save a different image file for each page.

                  241 pages, 123 MB is a lot of processing for the computer.

                    Could I put it in word format? But I was also going to try and split it up into smaller PDF's...thanks!

                        Awesome! Now that it is under 100, you could send it for free with Disguy's suggestion.

                          ok...ultimate frustration! My emails STILL won't send a file that big! at 70mb it's still to big! *sigh*

                          I'm gonna have to split up the files to 10mb each...ugh.

                              Just out of curiosity, how can I change it to a Word Doc?
