Hello,

 

I scan to pdf number of documents everyday and upload them on the company server and those pdfs need to be reduced in size so I don't load the server much.. Every time I want to reduce a pdf size I have to open it and go to file - save as - reduced size pdf - the ok - then click yes to overwrite the old one then click yes.. So I had in mind if there's ANY possible way to add the 'reduce size pdf' to the right click menu so when I right click a pdf file 'reduce size pdf command' show up and I reduce it from there.. I'm ready to do anything even if it takes much effort in coding or editing registry or any like stuff I work as a secondary IT in the company so I can get deep developing stuffs if I followed a guide..

 

So this is my situation here.. Can this be done?

 

Thanks in advance,

The way you add an action to the right click menu is shown here.

The problem is that acrobat doesn't have a lot of command line options:

So I don't see an easy way to ask it to do what you want other than possibly the print to pdf method talked about here (or maybe you could call one of the pdf shrinking programs they talk about):

Instead, have you looked at PDF Actions?

 
 
Seems to me you could automate the process of opening every file in a folder and doing your File, Save As,  reduced size pdf and send the shrunk file to the server.  That would save a lot of right clicks.
