I am using snagit 13 and my PDF file size is too large to attach to my emails and won't allow me to sent out. Therefore I need to resize my PDF by printing it to snagit printer. However I can't figure out how to resize ALL pages at the same time so I have been doing it one by one. However I have been resizing page by page and i am spending way too much time. Anyone knows If there's a way to resize all pages of the file all at once?

I am open to other ideas as to other software, (No online compress sites) or free trails of unknown software. My work place has strict rules on what software we can use at work so mainly within any windows apps only. Thanks in advance!!!!!!!

Wile I am not a Snag-it Version 13 owner, I had too many user oriented problems with Sang-it 12, so I use Sang-it version 11 now. So, here are some suggestions from a non Snag-it Version 13 owner: (1) try Version 12 or 11 and see if you have the same problem. (2) Use file extension say jpg instead of PDF. (3) If jpg files are still too large, you can always reduce their file size by using a picture program, such as Paint Shop Pro, or similar tools, but you would have to do one at a time. (4) If you select jpg instead of PDF, then there is an option as to the quality of the resultant picture. I have mine set to 90, but you can always reduce this, and the file size should go down as well, although I have not played with it much. If you stick to PDF, then there is no such option. To see this option, you need to be on the Properties page with 'File' selected under the 'Share' tab, and click on 'Options' in the lower right hand corner.

But I also want to address the file size issue. Most email systems allow you either 10MB or 20 MB per file transfer, so are you creating PDF files with Snag-it to begin with??? I find that hard to believe. So, is your email system archaic and it does not allow even the 10MB file size? I use snag-it all the time, and I have made a Windows tutorial file of over 400 pages with over 300 pictures, and almost all were captured using Snag-it, and I never got a file more than 1MB!

Hi Vincent, snag it is used within my work and we don't have the ability to use older version base on the restrictions on our system. That being said, the max size we can sent out is 9MB. We will receive files as PDF to began with and we need to add dates and stamp before sending it out to the next department. But because it is too big, we have to resize them. However resizing it page by page can take forever

I use Nitro Pro to handle PDFs but they have a reader that will do the shrink and replace the bloated Adobe reader. Here is a list of freeware / shareware articles and software ratings

Tell management to loosen the attachment restrictions on outgoing mail. 9 MB is a bit tight. Even Yahoo groups allowed 16 mb I believe

It's actually unbelievable to me that we're still using email attachment limits that were set in the 90's, when you consider the bandwidth we have available today.

But my other comment is, if you need to share these documents down a chain where people add stuff and pass it on, why's it not on a shared space - a network folder or google drive?
