hello All,

I am seeking advice because we would like to reduce the weight of PDF 
documents produced with Scribus.

We have prepared a product catalog where the average page has a 200dpi 
jpeg picture, about 4x6 inches in print, a table with specification and 
a short text.

On average, the A4 PDF page is 350Kb, which makes up to 42MB for a 120 
page document.

I did Google for this subject but, I must confess, I wasn't able to find 
my way through.

thanks for your time,
