      I am using PDFWARE PDF Toolbox to compress PDF files, its a very effective tool to compress PDF files, as well as it convert PDF files to PDF/A file format and extract text & images from PDF files. A normal user can't afford $1000 Adobe Acrobat, but PDFWARE PDF Toolbox price is only $69, so everyone can afford this.

      This does work (more or less) in the paid version of Adobe.

      This is simply reprinting the document a a lower quality level to reduce the size. With this method, size reduction does result in lower quality. We are still looking for a better (paid even) solution.

      Too true. I even tried to create a new printer choice, but Print to File only listed possible printer drivers and nothing about Adobe. I don't want to buy the full version just to shrink these files for my e-reader.

      This only works with the paid version, not the free reader.
