Reduce PDF size

Post by oddball508 » 2006-06-19T14:58:45-07:00

Does anyone know if I can replicate the Adobe PDF function to reduce the size of a PDF file?

Bassically I have PDF files that have been created in an automated OCR software (Re-Rite) from 300DPI Tif files. I have no control on the TIF to PDF process as this is done by the OCR software in which I can not control the output preferences. But when I take the OCR software PDF file and run it through the Adobe function to make a smaller file the size is reduced greatly.

What I would like to do is run a PDF through commandline routine like ImageMagick, pdftk or Ghostscript so I can utilise Automate6.

Thanks
