Question:Whenever I try to compress a PDF file to a lower possible size, by either using ghost script or other products, I end up having a file near to half the size of original. But lately, I am getting files of size in 1000 MB range, which are compressing to say a few hundreds. Can we further reduce them? The PDF is made from jpg images which are of higher resolutions, cant we reduce the size of those images and further bring in some more reduction in size, hoping there is a solution on VeryDOC?
