Why PDF files can be very large
PDF files with text are usually small. Only the embedded fonts are there, taking up the most space. In files with images it will look different. There are images that will take up too much space if you are not careful when creating the PDF. If there are many images in the PDF, than the PDF size may increase by several megabytes. You shouldn’t send very large files via email, because there is no guarantee here that the recipient can receive a file that is so big.
