File size becomes five times as big..?
on Jan 8, 2013 at 10:29:38 am

I have created an A4 page in indesign with one jpg on it, the jpg is around 5mb. I use indesign to add crop marks for printing, but for some reason when I export it as a pdf it becomes 25mb. How can I reduce the file size without losing quality?

Thanks for any help!! :)

G'day

25MB certainly sounds excessive for a one page PDF.
What export settings are you using and what is the final purpose of the PDF?
Play around with the 'compression' settings in your export preferences.
