I have a number of files  which were prepared in Corel Draw which I would like to post online.  The designer has supplied the PDF versions of these files, however, the files sizes are too large for web usage. A 8 pg document is 5Mb. I have tried reducing the sizes by compressing in Acrobat;  importing the PDFs into Corel Draw and re-creating PDF files with reduced resolution; recreating the PDF without the bitmap images (there are about  10 images)..yet the file size of the PDF does not change significantly.

What else can I do to reduce the file size of the generated PDF files?  

The files are newsletters, so most of the content is text and a few shapes and lines.

if it's for web, you can use JPG compression and a BIG compression ratio, low resolution (72 / 96 dpi) and output on RGB mode

It is pretty easy to reduce the file size, when you have most of its content as text.

In "Publish to PDF..." dialogue box, click on <Settings...> tab.

Now choose the <Objects> tab and increase the numeric value on "Bitmap compression" section.

Also, be sure to 'check-ON' the "Optimize for Web" check box under <Advanced> tab. (If you're planning to use this pdf on Web).

Yes, that's what I said, but it only works with JPG compression.

I'm using corel draw x4:

File > Publish to PDF

In the dialog box, select "Document Distribution" from PDF preset (3rd drop down box in the dialog box)

That's all

When publishing to PDF select output as RGB not the default CMYK. This will reduce the file size.
