Gigantic file wont open in versaworks
As per title, I have been given this huge PDF file that is 2.2 gigabytes. How on earth it got so big I will put down to the incompetence of the designer, because there is no godly need for it to be that big. There really isnt much to it.
It will actually eventually open in acrobat reader, although it takes a while, and if you try to navigate to the bottom of the picture it just takes forever to re-draw.
Versaworks shows the countdown, takes about ten minutes, reaches 99%, then shows a message that the file is corrupt.
Photoshop wont open it. Illustrator crashes. Indesign wont take it. (all the above mac and PC)
Is there an online service that will open PDFs and then you can download them as JPGs or something more practical?
The ones I tried wont open anything that big.
Or any other ideas anyone?
Thanks. Im sure weve all had this problem.
