I keep getting an error message when trying to save as a reduced size pdf, "Conversion Warning: an error was encountered while processing images" What does this mean?

I need to save this 7.4MB Pdf as a smaller pdf.

What version of Acrobat are you running?

Searching for solutions didn't provide much help, my first suggestion would be to test out a completely different file or if need be create a new one with a couple of things in it and try reducing the file size and see what happens. If you still get that error that run a repair of Acrobat and try again. If still no success update te software to the latest version to see if that corrects the problem. A last resort would be to reinstall Acrobat and see if that fixes the issue.

Now, if the test file you use comes out error free, recreate the original file and see if it comes out clean.

I was getting "anerror occurred while processing images Acrobat" when trying to reduce file size of a pdf. This solution worked for me:

if Acrobat gives"an error occurred while processing images Acrobat" then do this:

You need to go into Advanced>Print Production>Flattener Previewand then apply the flattening first (you can compress the images right in thereas well).

Once you do that youcan "Reduce File Size"... interesting that Adobe hasn't put thatmessage into the error handling for this. ;-)
