    Reduce PDF file size

    obouillaud Level 1

      I made a big PDF file using on cfdocument tag for each page (to avoid one very big pdf file which could crash the server). Then I merge all the small pdf into one (there is another thread about this in this forum)
      At the end I have a big PDF file buf which seems to be bigger than it could be (lots of same incorporated fonts for example). I also have big images that I want to reduce the size.
      For example I have a 3.5 mb pdf file, after a convertion in Adobe Acrobat 7.0 ("smallest file" setting) The file takes only 420 kb !

      How can I reduce the size of the file using coldfusion or itext functions ?
