# How to create minimum capacity .ps file

I have some images in my tex file. I had those images in .ps extension. When I create .ps file its capacity is more that 5mb. But I had to upload less that 1mb .ps file. So how can I do that ?

Convert your `.ps` image to a `.pdf` using `ps2pdf.exe`. The size will be reduced significantly.

And if you want to import the resulting `.pdf` image, just import it from your (La)TeX main document using `\includegraphics[]{}` (from `graphicx.sty`) and compile using `pdflatex.exe`. Done!

Online converter is also possible free of charge. Visit this link. Make sure your pic is not confidential.

if you are using Miktex (I am not sure for Texlive), you may want to optimize your .eps/.ps figures with the `epstoeps` command line. Also, when you create a postscript figure with your favourite application, make sure to think about the number of points of your simulation, or the definition of included objects in general
