[pdftex] Reducing PDF File Size

Hi Reinhard,

Thanks for your reply.  The suggestion doesn't work on:

\documentclass[pdftex, landscape]{article}



I tried using pdftopbm out of the xpdf package and it almost works  
except the
resolution options, "-r" does not seem to work.  I don't know anything  
the PBM file format but the resulting pages extracted are in black and  
and the resolution degrades as the number for -r is raised.  This  
is contrary to what I would expect.

I didn't post to pdftex since I am off topic.  If you have any  
additional thoughts,
let me know.  And thanks again for the response.
