I'm SHRINKING!!...not quite - Adobe Acrobat Macintosh

I have a photo heavy newsletter created in Illustrator CS1 that I need to make into a small pdf file. What's the best way to shrink the file size down while still maintaining decent quality? What file size should I consider small enough to email? Right now I've got 4 pages at 4.6MB....

    What file size should I consider small enough to email? Right now I've got 4 pages at 4.6MB.

    I can't get it smaller than 4MB.

    I actually took a screen capture of each page and put them all in one pdf which got it down to under 1MB, but there's got to be a better way to do it than that.

    Have you tired Advanced>PDF Optimizer from the Acrobat menu?

    Well - there are settings which can re-sample images and also apply more
    aggressive compression, unembed fonts and re-compress doent structure
    etc.

    However, if Acrobat still cannot being the file size down, there are 3rd
    party applications which can reduce sizes even more:

    Look at Shrink and Enhancer ...
