but how small are the resultant files?
Authored by: chidimaar on Aug 28, '07 05:00:40PM

This sounds promising, as I have to convert a bunch of keynote presentations to pdfs for students to download after my lectures (kids these days - want everything handed to them!). Keynote's (Apple's) built in export to PDF / print to PDF options both lead to rather large files that are tough on dialup lines. So my question is - does this make the pdf files smaller than Apple's version? I guess I'll get around to testing this one of these days but if anyone knows the answer, I'd appreciate hearing about it.

I printed the macosxhints webpage. With save as "pdf" it's 352 kb, with the CUPS-PDF 2.8 MB
