Hi All

Thanks for the input from JLuc!!!

He said..."I tried to print your file through "PDFCreator" pdf printer 
driver, at 72 dpi which is perfect for screen display and it produced a 
1,77Mb file (when the original was 5,5Mb).

That is very easy to do so why bother using ps and complex command line 

I wrote to him asking if he used the Windows PDFCreator or the Linux 
iPDFCreator but did not get a reply. So this morning I looked at both 
programs - did not manage to get too far with installing the Linux one 
so gave the Windows one a go.


I'm unhappy about having to move back to Windows to do this but IT WORKS 
and that's the most important thing!!

Thanks JLuc!!!
