Topic: Reduce PDF size keep pix quality?
Conf: (P-PDF) General, Msg: 50438

I need to reduce the file size of PDFs I produce to
about 180K without losing image quality of a
high-res photo on the front cover.

The original file is typically about 512K. The image
file is about 195K. The resulting PDF is 640K.

Distiller options include: Acrobat 4.0 compatibility,
ASCII format, optimize PDF, 1200 dpi resolution,
Color & Bitmap images bicubit downsampling at
300dpi, monocrome images bicubit
downsampling at 1200 dpi, compression
automatic, quality high for color & bitmap images,
compression CCITT 4 for monochrome bitmap
images, embed all fonts, subset all imbedded
fonts below 100%, conversion: tag everything for
color mgmt, Assumed profiles: greyŚnone, RGB:
sRGB 19666-2.1, CMYK: Adobe CMYK, Options: all
on, Advanced Options: use prologue.ps &
epilogue.ps is off; all other Advanced Options are
on, DSC: Log DSC Warnings is off; everything else
is on.

Does anyone know what settings to use to
accomplish this? Are there any additional tools
(i.e., plugins, etc.) that I'll need to do this?

Thank you.

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
