Jul 25, 2019
I have to upload a pdf file into a website, and it says
your pdf file is to large!
Hahaha, when i check my pdf file, its 14MB! OMG!
Well, fortunately in GNU/Linux Ubuntu, there is a tool
ps2pdf we can use to compress a pdf file. By default its already installed on the system.
Check by using command:
$ sudo apt install ps2pdf
To compress pdf:
$ ps2pdf large.pdf small.pdf
Here is my result from 14MB to 1.1MB!!
Hope it helps.
