PDF Compress

If you publish large PDF files on the web and want to make them a little smaller, you may like to take a look at the free PDF Compress tool (at the bottom of the page).
I couldn’t get particularly good results from it – in fact, in most cases the file was ever so slightly larger than before, but it could strip off a few bytes in some cases. I guess it’s one of those tools where your milage may vary, but it’s worth keeping just in case it does make a file significantly smaller.
It also lets you edit metadata, so I suppose that’s a redeeming feature.
