    The problem is you have to reduce the size of every single image if you want to reduce the file size of the whole file.

    Adobe Acrobat offers you an option to reduce the file size, but it limits also the quality of the file. If you can pm me a link where the file can be downloaded I can show you an example how it will look like.

    Have you tried Home*-*CVISION I used them to compress a whole bunch of pages I scanned from a book, and it worked brilliantly.

    Your best solution is to use Acrobat Reader Pro and break those PDF's into smaller files.. For example "Download the 10 PDF Reports" Breaking it into smaller files will help you and your customer a great deal...

    You do realize that many many many internet users are still using dialup, correct ? Imagine someone on dialup downloading a 75MB file.. Almost impossible, I know I have been there.. Even if you got it reduced to 50MB it still would take hours to download and that is assuming the ISP does not time-out..

      Thanks James.

      I deleted the e-book, not practical for the size it is at. Maybe software could be that size, but not a e-book.

      Moving onto another e-book project with smalller file sizes and more market demand.

    Your welcome..

    Being a website developer I know what file sizes can be and I do have some scripts that are 60+MB in size which is also why I do install of my scripts free of charge to all my clients.

    Wish you luck on your project and hope all turns out well..

    There are tools available online like the ones from cvision & enetpub etc... but while we are setting up our ebook, we should look into this factor that the content/stuff we are putting we will now a type of image, which remains unchanged.

    So me must try to put the files with of a low size as much as possible which keeps our file ready for use anytime & the hassle of compression is not there.
