Create super small PDF files
Authored by: Jeb48 on Feb 01, '07 10:32:06AM

Your hint on accessing the ColorSync Filters via the Print dialog should be a top level hint. I have used ColorSync filters for years to make my PDFs smaller and never realized I could use the filters directly in the Print dialog.

Create super small PDF files
Authored by: dmmorse on Feb 01, '07 12:08:04PM

Here, here! I would very much like to employ color sync filters in the manner described, but am unsure how to optimize a filter to obtain a smaller file size while still retaining legibility of the document (which includes text).

Please, please, please help out and include some more details in a top level hint.

For more information on how to set up filters using the Colorsync utility to control reduction of PDF size, check out Jerry Stratton's web page:
