If you are in the US you can take it to FedEx. They helped me reduce mine to the desired size.

Did you scan your transcript? If so, can you change your scan settings?

Right, I was just wondering about the OP's scanner. I can change all the settings on my scanner in terms of file size, so I was wondering if he/she could do it themselves, rather than taking it to FedEx.

I was stuck in a similar situation. I compressed the file and the least I could come to was 1.25, and still the website wont accept. I was so pissed off, I messaged the ECFMG support services.

The guy was really nice, and he told me to send him the pdf file. He was able to somehow make it down to 900kb

Basically, he made the entire file black and white, reduced the resolution a bit, and it came down to 900kb.

So, I would suggest anyone who is stuck with the file size, email ECFMG support service (alternatively you can email from your ERAS inbox), and they will make the file size less for you if you are unable to.
