    Hi and welcome to the forum!

    I use Preview a LOT, but nearly always for imaging manipulation - but if you load a PDF file into the app, go to the 'File' menu and select 'Export' (see attachment below) - choose the 'Quartz Filter' and pick 'Reduce File Size' (blue arrow) - save under a different name - w/ the file I loaded below, the size went from 1.8 GB to 800+ MB and looked the same to my eyes - let us know.
