    Inserting a small PSD-logo in indesign doubles the size of the PDF...

    Bartattack Level 1

      I have a layout in indesign and when I make a PDF it's about 5MB in filesize (high quality setting). . Now when I put a psd with logo in it (300 DPI - 4 cm x 1 cm) and make the same PDF with the same settings... filesize goes up to 13 MB.  When the logo is copied in indesign..filesize of the PDF goes up even higher to 27MB...
      When I remove the logo..filesize is back to 5Mb.

       

      tried copy and pasting the logo in a new file... tried saving as png and even jpg...etc... the pdf filesize stays abnormally large.

       

      this is the psd file btw:  http://download.artattack.be/UZLykD3

       

      When you put this logo in an empty indesign file...and make a pdf. the size is about 7 MB (on high quality settings).

       

      any idea why this thing is making my pdf's so large? it doesn't make sense...
