The Hint condensed: Buy PDF software
Authored by: frank nospam on Feb 02, '07 10:47:29AM

That's really all that's being said here. OS X's built-in PDF implementation doesn't do much optimization, but (oddly enough) payware products specifically designed to generate PDFs do.

I was hoping to find "Create super small PDF files *with OS X*". Or freeware. Or even compilable open source code. Ah well.

The Hint condensed: Buy PDF software

Upon further investigation, I can only say "SHEESH!" Acrobat costs $300 for v7 or $450 for v8. Even the Academic version is $150. It is not exactly something that most people just have carelessly lying around on their hard drive.

...or at least, most people who pay for their own software. I suppose this hint would be of use to pirates and the idle rich.
