    How do I reduce the file size without using third party software?

    Community Answer
    Using the 'Reduce File Size' option does not greatly reduce the size. If you need to make it much smaller, use the "EXPORT TO" option to convert the PDF to a JPEG or any other image. Once it is an image, use the "PRINT TO PDF" option to send it back to PDF format. It will be much smaller. Quality will be sacrificed,
    Thanks!

    It is difficult to achieve a specific target. Try using a website such as miniimagesvideos.com/pdf ; you can run multiple iterations on this website. The size will be dependent on the scanned images size/quality.
    Thanks!

    If you are using a Windows computer, go to the picture in the file explorer and choose edit, usually a choice in the menu after you right click the mouse on a Windows platform. This should take you into the Paint program where you can reduce the size.
    Thanks!
