Zipping a .pdf File...Help, please.....

Hey, folks!

I have finally determined how to export family tree charts into .pdf formats, so that I can share them with other family members who do not have Family Treemaker. The charts are in .pdf format so that the photos for each person in the tree will be retained, as well as the entire formatting of the family tree chart.

Here, however, is my problem. Upon inspection, the file size of one of my charts is 71+ MB. Others are much larger. In order to send one as an email attachment, I need it to be below 10MB. While I have the file open, it will not permit me to make any changes to it. I am given the option of saving an identical copy or saving it as a text document.

Is there a way that I can compress this .pdf file, so that I can attach it to emails? If anyone can help, I trust that the good folks here will be able to! :)
