Make your own Reduce File Size presets for PDF export
Authored by: regulus on Jul 05, '12 09:32:51AM

I found that your settings as described didn't yield good results. None of them resulted in a clear pdf. As such I also adjusted the ImageScaleFactor setting in the quartz filter file. With these settings, the high quality filter was indistinguishable from the "no quartz filter" file.

For this test I used a 1.2 MB jpg file and exported it to pdf. Here's my filter settings and resulting file size:

PDF with no quartz filter file size: 4.4 MB

Name: Reduce File Size_Low Quality
Compression Quality: 0.5
ImageScaleFactor: 0.5
ImageSizeMax: 842
File Size: 250 KB

Name: Reduce File Size_Intermediate Quality
Compression Quality: 0.75
ImageScaleFactor: 0.6
ImageSizeMax: 1684
File Size: 442 KB

Name: Reduce File Size_High Quality
Compression Quality: 0.95
ImageScaleFactor: 0.75
ImageSizeMax: 3508
File Size: 774 KB
