If you flatten the file then layers and overlays are compressed into a single
image. The easiest way to flatten a document is to export if as pdf 1.4 or
higher. Then import it into Acrobat Reader and print to file. Then run that
print file through Ghostscript script:
The end result will have all the layers, overlays and transparencies etc.
flattened and the pdf will be much smaller in most cases.
