Question
We are looking at converting our print magazine into an online magazine.

Many of our subscribers are traveling and have limited download limits with their internet. My question is that our monthly magazine is around 40MB, does 3d issue convert the PDF’s to a larger or smaller file size.

We don’t want the viewing of the magazine to cut into our subscribers download limits and would prefer that the magazine load at a reasonable speed.

Solution
The speed at which the publication runs depends on several factors – the bandwidth and connection speed of the hosting server, the speed of the readers’ connection and the resolution of the pages (this can be set in the software).

The files created by 3Dissue are always going to be larger than the original PDF due to the interactive elements of a digital edition, but the overall file-size can be kept low by experimenting with the software’s inbuilt DPI and quality settings. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
