Launched: Export Compressed PDFs

Hey y’all, engineer here at Figma: we just shipped an update to utilize more compression for PDF files. We now compress images using JPEG at 75% quality and compress long text streams using zlib.

Example: we had an ~89 Mb file that now exports at ~4 Mb.

Different files will have different compression results depending on their contents. Please let us know if you have any questions about this update or other PDF sizing questions.

Thank you.
