Affinity Publisher - Export issue

Recommended Posts


So I'm a newbie when it comes to Affinity publisher, intact I have never used any type of publishing software ever. So I'm creating a zine. The affinity file is at 4.7mb yet when I export it as PDF it comes to 65mb. The DPI rate is 300. Do I need to reduce anything. I'm using Digital photo files.

When you have selected "prefer linked" in image placement policy (menu>document setup), the Affinity file could be small. But when you export it to pdf, images are embedded, so the file size can be large especially if you use lot of images with 300dpi resolution.
