Create super small PDF files
Authored by: cpaulu on Feb 02, '07 07:23:26PM

To put a couple of these post-hint hints together, you can indeed use "Save As..." in Preview and select a Quartz Filter called "Reduce File Size". But not only that, you make alternate versions of said Filter with different compression settings, and experiment to your heart's content. Simply open the Colorsync Utility and click the Filters tab. Click the triangle to the right of "Reduce File Size" and you'll see an option to Duplicate the Filter from the contextual menu.
But wait, that's not all. You can open PDFs in Colorsync Utility and preview the effect of any Quartz Filter on any page in the PDF! This is great if your major concern is how it will appear on screen. Try it out.
