    Acrobat 9 Pro - Change Image Compression/Quality w/ Javascript?

    lhanneman Level 1

      Hello,

       

      I've got a folder-level script that will merge PDFs by using "insertPages" to add a list of PDFs to a new document. The file size is too large, and I've noticed that if I go into the PDF Optimizer manually and change the Image Settings so the compression quality is "low" for both Color images adn Grayscale images, it brings the file size down to where I need it to be.

       

      My question is, can I do this in my script somehow? I don't see anything in the Javascript Reference or Acrobat SDK about updating images within document. I'd really like to automate this optimization within my script.

       

      Has anyone ever done this before?

       

      Many thanks in advance!
