    "Very good program"

    Version: PDFshrink 4.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I prepare a lot of single-page PDF slides and multi-page PDF documents containing placed pixel images (JPEGs, TIFFs), using Adobe Illustrator primarily, along with TeX and Mathematica, since I find this approach preferable to PowerPoint or Keynote at least for my work flow in preparing presentations. In doing this I've used PDF Shrink repeatedly to shrink the resolution of pixel graphics and remove unneeded metadata after the PDF has been Saved, and have always found it easy to use, effective, and reliable.

    I also like to keep the master copies of my PDF slides with Illustrator's "Preserve Illustrator editing capabilities" turned on so I can quickly reopen and edit them in Illustrator if needed. Unfortunately this seems to mean an overhead of an additional 350 to 400 kB in file size for these masters. PDF Shrink capabilities include an option called "Remove Private Application Data." Turning on this option and applying PDF Shrink to a set of master files can produce copies that are reduced from 400 kB to under 20 kB each

    I've also always gotten quick and helpful feedback from the vendors crew when I emailed queries to them.

    "good but probably not necessary"

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Nice interface, easy to use, good documentation, gets the job done. Program provides easy set up for printing, web, and iPhone applications. However you can achieve similar results with the paid version of Adobe Acrobat. Just go to "save as", select "Adobe PDF Files, Optimized" and select "Settings". You will see options for the sampling, compression method, pixels per inch, and quality. Thus this software is useful only if you do not have the Adobe Acrobat Pro.
