    Adding Text Watermarks increases file size - how to reduce?

    rowelletal

      I am processing PDFs as part of a larger automated workflow. The workflow calls a Javascript function (via Applescript) that opens and manipulates a PDF.

       

      My issue is when I addWatermarkFromText my file size is increasing by about 800Kb.

       

      I am using font.Times, font.TimesI and font.HelvB (ie the built in fonts).

       

      I also apply a preflight profile to reduce the file size, but this does nothing to the Watermark Text.

       

      Does anyone have a method to reduce the file size using only javascript (without any user intervention)?

       

      Thanks,

       

      Marcus.
