Topic: PDF settings for optimal quality and small file size

Hi there,

I produce an online PDF magazine. Our advertisers send ad material produced the same way for our print magazine (133 dpi, CMYK). The problem is the file size of the magazine is large -- 20 MB for 50-60 pages. I need to reduce this size without compromising quality. Any ideas as to how this can be done? I've used the "Reduce file size" feature, but it causes some of the images to look fuzzy. Should I have advertisers prepare the ads a different way?

I work in Quark 6.0.6.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
