How to reduce the size of my PDF files on a Windows?

Solution

To reduce the size of a PDF, you can use doPDF (available on http://www.dopdf.com).

It works like PDFCreator except that it also allows you to reduce the size of PDF documents.

Instructions:
- Open the PDF you want to reduce the size
- Select "Print" using the "doPDF" virtual printer.
- In "Printer Preferences" section, change the resolution (minimum 150 dpi)
- Rename your PDF file or save it to another location.
