I’ve created over 100 artboards in Figma and want to create a PDF from them. After exporting the file, I found that it’s quite large in size. How can I effectively reduce the file size? Compressing the PDF with online tool (ilovepdf) only seems to decrease the size by about a third, and it’s still around 10MB. I can’t export it as an image also.
Any help and explanation why it’s so heavy will be appreciate!
Hey @Anna_Dabek ! If you are having size issues, you might want to check if you have any big images that might be affecting the total size of the PDF. If this is the case, you might want to download the images on a smaller size (You can do this in Photoshop) or compress the images individually. You can compress images using a Figma plugin called “Downsize”. You can check it out here: https://www.figma.com/community/plugin/869495400795251845/Downsize
Hi @MartinBajac Thank you for your response. It seems like I’ve tried everything you mentioned. I don’t have any images, just text, tables, and sometimes icons. I conducted an experiment just now, comparing two files. In the first one, I removed all text, and in the second one, I left it to compare. The first file was 1.7 MB, and the second one (with text) was 1.9 MB, so the difference is still negligible.
Could you please share any other advice to solve this? Like maybe saving this as without a text and add a text in another app like ilustrator or something like this?
