I need to upload pdf files to my website. I need to make some changes before I can do this.

How do I:
1) convert the pdf files to word so I can edit and improve them (I lost the word files a long time ago) (free is better)

2) compress the files - these pdfs were created more than 5 years ago when I didn't know about optimizing photos. The file size of the photos are large and so are the pdfs themselves. Just can't upload such monsters...

Help! Would love your kind advice!!!!

Try this free prog (I haven't used it but sounds like it will do the job)
If you capture the text, then use paint.net (also free) to extract the pics and reduce them, you may be ok.
