Reducing PDF file

A few days ago, I needed to upload a pdf file to a Yahoo group forum which was over 5MB in size.  I wasn't able to upload due to the size of the pdf file.  So I split the file into two parts, posting each one separately on the site.

I received a kind email from forum member who had used Adobe Pro to reduce the size of the original file from 5 MB to 2.5MB.  I had not realized that this was offered as a feature in the Adobe software.  I have Adobe Standard Edition for the Mac and decided to try this clever tip.  It worked ... in the 'File' menu was the 'Reduce File Size' option.   I was then able to repost the pdf file in one part to the forum.
