Compress PDF files via Preview works well
Authored by: LeeH on May 11, '06 11:31:41AM

Actually, I have not lost much quality. When exporting from ID, some of the work has a lot of transparency in it. The best way I have found to get a true representation is to export out of ID using a custom setting for High Quality. I also have the compression set for typical print applications - i.e 300 dpi, etc.

Now, file is great to send to printer. However, usually large (multi Mb as would be expected) and want client to review.

I use preview and Save with the reduce file size option. Works like a charm. Colors are good, images are good and file size is very small.
