Prior to optimizing, the document can be analyzed to determine what specific document elements including Fonts, Images, Annotations, etc... are within the document. You can then use the report to determine the best options to effectively reduce the file size.

Open the Optimizer Settings dialog and click on the "Analyze" button to generate the report.
