do you mean that, when in a browser I open pages, only the screen
images are downloaded? But I suppose that if the user dowloads the
PDF, he will have 12 Mb anyway, no?

Anyaway, my pb is how do i get both versions of the images, being sure
that they have the very same geometry?

(i made a test yesterday by converting JPEG to EPS with imagemagick,
then distilling the EPS with screen parameters. The result is
qualitatively and quantitavely correct, but once included, most of the
images changes their sizes! especially small images yield something
lost in a white ucropped page...)
