Creating smaller PDF's that contain JPG's

Post by glima » Mon Jun 23, 2014 2:46 am

We are creating PDF's that have the same image on the page several times. These files can have a lot of pages and thus are extremely large. This large size is due to the PDF storing multiple copies of the same image. Is there a way to save space by just using 1 image and then a reference to it?

Hi,

can you send a scaled down example (zipped) - say just a few pages - as it should only save one copy of the image file (providing it really is the same) and use it multiple times internally as part of the creation process. Also is this file being created in one process or are pages being added saved, added saved etc ..

Thanks

After your response I realized that the PDF's are being created via the Print Driver and using a DC. I am going to look into creating the base PDF and then use watermarks for the dynamic portion.

Thanks for the quick reply and I will let you know how it turns out
