What are the best ways to compress or shrink a large pdf file?
CMYK-Colormanagement Files *.icc are often . For a presentation you do NOT need CMYK-colormanagement. Just convert everything in your file to sRGB and include this .icc-profile drop the other CMYKs. You can do this with Acrobat Pro or DC. A single CYMK-Profile like ECI ISO coated v2 takes up to 12 MB. A simple RGB Profile just about 5 KB. If you don any .icc-Files your PDF will look weird on Wide-Gamut Screens. ResolutionnForget about this 72 dpi-stuff. For screen purpose take 15 ppi. So you allow others to zoom in a bit and the images stay sharp. In fact resolution isn such a killer .icc-files are and this without any visible 15 ppi you allow others to make copies on a homeprinter or laserjet.

Is there a free tool which allows to resize a PDF to a specific file size? I would like to enter that e.g. the file can only be 5MB large at most.
Thanks to A2A. The size can be changed but you have to understand a few points when changing the file size. It depends on the actual dimensions of the printable size. If that is a poster size 3 foot x 4 foot it will be bigger in size than a letter size. The s (JPG) will be affected. So in brief you can reduce the PDF size by either changing its () dimensions or changing to a lower resolution (72 to 12 dpi) as minimum. Cheers

I don't rmend Quora for the minutiae of R functions. Stack Overflow is where you need to go. It is set up for problem solving and has a vetting process for answers to questions.
