Topic: Reduce pdf file size

Hello all, I’m a rookie at pdf so I really need your help. I have read some messages related to this topic but none of them really applies to mine. I receive tons of documents daily and they need to be scanned and converted to pdf, they’re saved on our database and also posted on our web. Along with plain text docs, also come stamped docs and photos that need to remain in color and that really booms the file size. Sometimes, when the photo is in pdf already, I take a snapshot using the snapshot tool and I copy it to word, then I print the word doc back to pdf and it reduces tremendously the file size. The cons of this method is that it takes longer to finish a file and I get great amounts of documents daily and I have a bunch of piles backed up. I use adobe pdf 6.0 on windows 2000. Does anybody know a software or something to streamline this method, preferable a new way to reduce the pdf file size and keep my color docs and photos in pdf format?
Thank you for your help ‘cause I really need it.
