Tried It Tuesday {Compress PDF's}

Hi everyone! It's Time for Tried It Tuesday!
What have you tried at school or home?
If you've never linked up with Tried It Tuesday, just link up any idea school or home related and what worked or didn't work. Grab the button below. Simple!

My Tried It:
Compress PDF's (Free!)
Since I learned this trick, it has come in super handy! My PDF's always seem to be huge and TpT requires previews to be 5MB or less. I like to make displays in Power Point with pictures from the product and my previews were always so large. I had to limit the pages and pictures to keep it under 5MB. No more! I tried a couple different sites, and smallpdf was the easiest one I found that was successful with my large preview files. It's super easy to use!
This one was compressed from 30.89MB to 1.51MB!
This one was compressed from 11.95MB to 1007.69KB! That IS awesome and now my previews are a few pages filled with pictures. Love it! 

Don't forget about the Back to School sale at TpT that ends today! My store is 20% off and with the code BTS15, you can get an additional 8% off!

  2. What a great tip to share. I had to look up how to do this when I started making products to share. This post will hopefully help so many so they don't have to search for the answer like I did. Thanks for sharing :)
