Create super small PDF files
Authored by: adrianm on Feb 01, '07 08:40:38AM

In my experience, PDF compress option has little effect for most docs. All it seems to do is replace uncompressed images with JPGs -- doesn't seem to downsample them like Acrobat or PDFShrink does.

You can use the Colorsync utility to set your own filter that will downsample images when creating PDFs. Then just choose that filter from the print dialog prior to saving as PDF.
