Sometimes I'll open a .pdf document in CS3 to make some changes to it
and then save it as a .pdf with a new name. The problem I'm having is
when I start with a .pdf document that is 308KB in size and open one
page of that document in CS3 and then save the changed page as a .pdf,
the new one page document is now 1.41MB in size.
I've played around with different settings in the Save As dialog box and
I can get a smaller file but it's not very sharp, not nearly as sharp as
the smaller, original .pdf.
I used the following settings to get the 1.41MB file:
Adobe PDF Preset: [Press Quality](Modified)
Standard: None Compatibility: Acrobat 5 (PDF 1.4)
Options selected: Optimize for Fast Web Preview
If I choose [Smallest File Size]in the Adobe PDF Preset, the resulting
.pdf is smaller, but not as sharp as the original .pdf.
Are there better selections when Saving to preserve both the size and
sharpness of the original .pdf document?
