Illustrator :: Reducing Huge File Sizes

Jul 20, 2010

I am making very detailed artwork in Illustrator that ultimately has to be uploaded to a website as a pdf file. This artwork takes ages to save and when converted to pdf format, even at the lowest quality pdf, the files are huge. What is the best way to get the file size down? Turning the files into low res jpegs somewhat defeats the purpose of making detailed vector art in the first place.
The artwork has a lot of repeated elements that could be turned into symbols but I'm told this doesn't fix the problem of huge pdfs.

Photoshop :: Reducing Extra Large PSD Files

Apr 10, 2009

I have a slew of psd files that were saved with maximum file compatability turned which left them incredibly bloated. Is there a trick to saving them which gets rid of the overhead left by maximum file compatability short of rebuilding every file from scratch? I'm guessing 20% savings on size would not only save space but speed things up too.

Illustrator :: Flattening Transparency / Rasterizing Large Files For Print

Apr 11, 2012

Dealing with large prints (72in x 36in @350dpi).
I've been commissioned to make a large print (12ft by 3ft) for a gallery. They want me to use a preferred printer who requires a final output resolution of 300-350dpi. My source file is an Illustrator file (CS5.1) containing MANY (100's) overlapping, transparent polygons). The printer initially told me that it was fine to supply the Illustrator file as two parts, 6ft x 3ft with everything as vectors. They just got back to me and rejected my files, now requesting full resolution TIFFs.

I have tried to flatten the transparency and output to TIFF, but either Illustrator hangs indefinitely halfway in the process or errors out, telling me that the combination of size and resolution is impossible to output. I've even tried to import to photoshop as smart object, etc. It appears that I'm running out of memory/cpu power/illustrator abilities even though I tried this on a quad cpu mac pro with 12GB of memory. At the moment, how to rasterize my vector art at anywhere near acceptable resolution. The image is very dense, and full of subtle changes in color and density due to the transparency. I need to preserve it as much as possible.

Photoshop :: Reducing Multiple Image Sizes In One Go

Oct 12, 2004

I have a whole directory of images which I took with my digital camera. I want to post them on my site, however I would like to reduce their size to fit the html pages. I know how to perform this task for individual photos, but since my directory consists of many images, this task will be very time consuming.

I was wondering if there is any way to have photoshop make the same image
size reduction on all images, by running some sort of script or any other way.
If there is such a way, does photoshop also save the new smaller images?

Photoshop :: Any Websites' That Send You Your Print-outs?

Aug 19, 2007

I'm starting my course at University in September and they have issued all the students with a summer project which is to design a T-Shirt. That's great and I can't wait to get cracking, but I want to print my design onto the T-Shirt using transfer paper.

The problem is my printers quality won't develop an effective result and it's too small for what I'm printing, so I would like to know if there are any websites I can use to upload my images to and choose what kind of material it could be printed on (transfer paper in this case) and choose the specific size of the material (e.g. A1-A4 etc).

Lightroom :: Adding Further IPTC Sections To Print Outs

Nov 12, 2011

I am photographing and cataloging the paintings and drawings of an artist. There are over 3,000 of them. LR is such a good database that I am hoping I can use just that and add the details into the IPTC data - Title, Medium, Date created, Size, Price, whether sold and to whom, and  - crucially - which shelf in the artist's store building they are located.
My idea was to use SlideShow Pro to publish the catalog to the web for dealers to browse, and my experiments show this would work very well, with IPTC data available on mouse-over.
I also need to produce a catalog with images and info for the artist's assistant so that she could quickly locate a requested painting on the correct shelf. Again this seems feasible up to a point as it is possible to print out the photos with IPTC information.
BUT - and here is my problem: I do not want all the info that the artist's assistant needs in the catalog to be available on the public slideshow, so have put different bits of info into different IPTC sections. But then I come across the limitation of printing in LR  - only one section of IPTC info is allowed.
As it is I am at the moment also entering the info into a database (File maker Pro). I find on a good day with the wind behind me I can crop and adjust and catalog about 30 paintings an hour in LR. Also adding the info to File maker nearly doubles that. And more importantly it will be clunky and prone to error to have to alter or add to two separate databases in the future.

Lightroom :: Print To File - Sending Large Files?

Mar 12, 2013

I'm new to Lightroom and was attempting to prepare a file to send to a print lab. I want to produce a large format single image with dimensions of 52" x 36". I've prepared this in the 'print' module but when I press 'print to file...' it warns me that the file is 760mb and I may run out of memory! Is this file to large to sent to a printer, how can I reduce the size of the file without reducing the quality of the print? or is this just a standard file size for a large format printed image?

GIMP :: Reducing Large Geo Photographs In Size?

Dec 13, 2011

I have to reduce 4 very large TIF files [each one is about 250MB!] to a more manageable size to stitch together and apply as a watermark. They seem to have been taken at about 1.5km above the ground and are very high resolution at 8000x8000.

I still want to retain reasonable resolution at about 250m above the ground so my question is what is the best way to reduce each down?

Would I resizing them in actual size as well as reducing dpi?

Illustrator :: CS6 - AI To PDF For Large Format Print

Mar 7, 2013

I am working with Illustrator CS6 and I have to prepare a file that will be printed as a 6 foot x 1.5 foot banner. Actually, it will be several banners; the same design but only the name of the organization will change. I have everything on different layers in the .ai file.
I've done the artwork as an .ai file, everything is a vector, there are no rasterized images in it at all.
The problem is, I'm not sure the best way to save the file to send to the printer. So, do I save the .ai file as a pdf, a pdf/x-1a, pdf/x-3 or pdf/x-4? Should I convert the text to outlines? There's a symbol in the artwork that includes text, does that text have to be converted to outlines as well?
Or should I just send them a file any which-a-way and see how the proof comes back?

Illustrator :: Can't Print Large Documents To Plotter

Jun 25, 2013

For years, we've been printing large documents to our plotter without issue.  Suddenly last week, nothing large will print.
I've seen a few different error messages, and have tried different computers, and different versions of Illustrator, but nothing large will print.
When trying to print, I currently get the following:
I've also seen an error suggesting not enough memory is available, which is bogus.  And I think another error that was more vague, something to the effect of "can't print"
I've setup a clean install of illustrator on a clean windows install, same issue. I setup an alternate print server with our rip software, same software we've been using for years.  Same error on the alternate server.
Nothing changed, and it's effecting everything here, and new installs.  I don't know what happened, but this is getting critical, we need the ability to print.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Print Merge Large Files Without Crashing Or Having To Break It Into Digestible Bits

Aug 3, 2011

Just a guess but with 64 bit Coreldraw maybe we would be able to Print Merge large files without crashing or having to break it into digestible bits.

Do vector conversion of complex images.Use Coreldraw like a publishing program,  - kick Indesign

Computer memory is no longer the issue - 32 bit computer programs are.Until then I will stay with X4. run in Windows 7, 64 bit with 12 Gigs RAM.

Photoshop :: Print Preview Colors Don't Match Work Window + Print Sizes

Jan 16, 2009

So I am working on this document and it has silver background. I go to print preview (Photoshop cs3 and cs4 on Vista) and I get color looking more like bronze looking but when I do print, it comes out just like it should (in working mode which is Monitor RGB with Proof colors checked).

This setting is the only one I've used to make sure image/psd looks exactly like what it should when printing. I tried the default Working CMYK with and without Proof colors but it's still showing me the bronze look instead of silver. I've looked on the net and no exact easy fix for this was found. I really really appreciate any help.

Another simple question is regarding size. I'm working on a document size of 17.5 x 8.7 inches and the actual Banners will be printed at size 175 x 87 inches (5 banners each at 35inch wide but combined into a big one). So essentially, I'm working at 10% the size of what the final print will be and my file size is 760mgs. You can only imagine how big the file would be if I work on the actual size.

GIMP :: Large Font Sizes On Base Image Of 2000x3000 Pixels

Mar 27, 2012

I've been experimenting with large font sizes on a base image of 2000x3000 pixels. I've been using a basic white type face on a dark gray background and adjusting the lightness and contrast of the white color to different levels. Also, I created the type as as png first and then brought into Gimp. When the image is at full size, the type looks fine, but when I shrink the image down, say a quarter of the size, the edges of the fonts get very jagged and look like they're breaking up.

Illustrator :: Working With Large Artboards / Files

Dec 2, 2012

I'm currently designing a full size film poster for a client. The dimensions of the poster are 27" x 40" (industry standard film poster).I am a little uncertain in working with large files in Illustrator, so I have several problems that have come up in several design projects using similar large formats.
The file size is MASSIVE. This poster uses several large, high-res images that I've embedded. I didn't want them to pixelate, so I made sure they were high quality. After embedding all these images, along with the vector graphics, the entire .ai file is 500MB. How can I reduce this file size? Can I do something with the images to make the .ai file smaller? I made my artboard 27" x 40" - the final size of the poster. Is this standard practice? Or when designing for a large print format, are you supposed to make a smaller, more manageable artboard size, and then scale up after to avoid these massive file sizes?  

I need to upload my support files for the project, including .ai and .eps - so it won't work if they're 500MB. This would be good info to understand for all projects I think.

Illustrator :: Linking Files In CS5 - AI File Too Large To Email

Aug 24, 2012

I'm working with some files that must be saved as .ai files and then emailed.  I linked a photo, gave it a drop shadow and saved the file.  The original file without the photo was about 1.5 mb.  The size of the photo is about 2 mb.  After I linked the file and then saved it, my .ai file was 21 mb which is too large to email.  Why is the file size so large, especially when the picture is not embedded?

Illustrator :: CS6 - File Size TOO LARGE With Linked Files

Recently, I am working with illustrator CS6.

After inserting quite a lot of linked images (without embedding), the file size becomes much larger, up too nearly 400MB.

I saved without pfd compatible function already, but the file size is sill very large. I did not face the same problem working with CS5 before, is that a bug for CS6?

I can not print imported images (JPG or TIFF) large size 80 - 260 Mb.

Print all but the raster! I tried to print on a plotter in JPG, TIFF, in whole or in parts, useless.

If I export the whole project in JPG 2000x3000 pix, all right, but I have 9000x10000 pixels - that size is not exported.

Illustrator :: CC Very Slow To Open And Save Large Format Files

Feb 19, 2014

I work in a print shop that prints biggish stuff. I will frequently have files that postscript to close to a GB or more. Working on simple vector art with a few images in CC is not too much of a problem, but I still notice CC is slower than CS 6. The big problem is when I get a few 200mb PDF's, or files with layers of transparent PSD files in them etc, big busy files, then AI CC really bogs down, or frequently crashes altogether. CS 6 is MUCH better. I don't have the font issues, AI CC works fine with simple files. Saving & opening these big files is such a problem, I just save them back to CS 6, but that causes problems too, I do not want to, nor should I have to have 2 versions open at the same time.

I always try to optimize the files as best possible, but it is tough sometimes as they R supplied by the customer, and the time it takes. We save to a Windows Server 2008 R2 box over gigabit network, which I know is not best practice, but no choice with the sheer volume of files. Would B insane to try to keep track & copy them back & forth, and it was never a big issue with CS 6. I am the first victim in our office, but the other 3 Mac Pro's will B switching over to CC this week, and I know the operators will B crying.

Lightroom :: Setting LR To Print To Different Sizes?

Jul 24, 2013

I have a picture package I want to create. This needs to be the same image on different sized outputs. But you can only create a print package with one custom file size. Is there a way of setting LR to print to different sizes?
I know I can select page size as master size, and print with different sized cells on each page, but I actually want the page size to be different.
For example
page 1 = 8x10 page size, with 8x10 cell
page 2 = 8x12 page size with 8x12 cell
page 3 = 8x6 page size with 8x6 cell
page 4 = 8x6 page size with 2 of 4x6 cells.
I single image, printed on 4 different size pages...
Could you modify the LRtemplate file? Its the global settings bit that concerns me, I dont want a global setting of
_globalSettings = {customFileHeight = 576,customFileWidth = 432,I could do with these file dimensions different for each print.
Can it be done?? has it been done??
even if itspeople pointing me towards different software.
PS - I'm using LR4 but LR5 doesnt have this option either.

GIMP :: Customize Paper Print Sizes?

Jun 9, 2011

Is it possible to add a custom paper size to Gimp? I have a new HP wide format printer and was looking for a capability to customize the paper size. Hewlett Packard and Microsoft have said that the customization of paper size is application specific even though Microsoft tells you can customize paper size through server properties , which on my XP machine will not save the custom settings.

Note: This page, even though it is not a Microsoft page, shows what Microsoft tells you to do. [URL]

Revit :: Printing Multiple Sheets With Different Sizes To Print

Feb 10, 2013

We are looking for an easy straightforward way to print / export an entire set of sheets to pdf.The sheets have different papersizes and we want them to be named with the sheet number + name, and possible a prefix by choice.We have Adobe Acrobat X installed as pdf printer.So far we managed to print an entire set to pdf with these somewhat annoying issues:

1. The naming adds the word "sheet" between the chosen prefix and number-name.can we get rid of this?
2. The prints seem only to follow the actual Revit Print-setup, on papersizes.Which means that we need to have print-sessions on every paper size used in a project.Strange that in Revit the paper print-setup, doesnt follow the sheet definitions.(?)Is there a way within Revit to solve this to a more automated workflow?Or do we have to implement third party plugiins / solutions?
