    no idea where to post this thread and my brain isnt working......i have a 867kb pdf file. It is 3 pages. I just need the first page edited in a few small places. The problem is when i open it with photoshop to do the edits it says just the single page will be an image size of 25.9 mb. WTF? Shouldnt it be smaller, not bigger? I mean its only 1 of the 3 pages. Is there something im doing wrong here? If anyone could shed some light on this I would truly appreciate it.

    It is always bigger when you open it up in Photoshop as it is probably opening it up as 100 percent size at 300ppi.

    Once you save it back to a PDF it will go back down in size with the PDF compression but opening it up in Photoshop will remove the ability to edit text. You would be better off getting hold of a 30 day trial of Adobe Acrobat from the Adobe site and using that to edit it. That application gives you the ability to also save it to Word format which would mean you could edit away to your hearts content.

    Not sure if I understand correctly, but you could convert the PDF file to Word document.

    Then edit the word document however you like, then convert it back to PDF.

    You can do all of the conversions online, they all usually take a few minutes and email you the files :)

    well the file im editing is a sales offer so there are small logos that need to be swapped out as well as text for pricing changes. I need to do lots of these maybe 10 per week. They always come to me as pdfs and they edits need to be pdfs as well. When i get them the resolution is very clear and i need to keep it this way so the edit can be printed. Most printers require that an image is 300 dpi. I understand a little bigger but not really cause its already splitting the file into 1/3 the pages. Wont using compression compromise the resolution?

    You can download a copy of Acrobat from a file sharing site or there are some free sites on the web you can use for free. One is

    Code:
    http://www.pdfescape.com/
    Read the directions carefully. Registration is free but if you don't register and upload your document and edit it without saving it to your hard drive, you won't have access it to it later on.

    I think the page you opened in Photoshop is on 300dpi or something like that. Just open each page, save them as JPG format in 72 or 96dpi and see if it works.
    If not I will try to help you.
