RE: NEW bloat in PDF file sizes....

> You are getting the bitmap in Postscript,

But the PDF file is four times the size of the Postscript 

I just tried another doc -- this one with 44 pages and tons of
graphics, all imported at 120 dpi...

tutorial.ps    is  7347 K
tutorial.pdf   is  6109 K
tutorial2.pdf  is  3613 K (tutorial.pdf saved w/ optimization)

This is with "generate Acrobat data" turned on. And here, the 
PDF files are *smaller* than the Postscript files. 

Still confused,

This is why. Bitmaps at that resolution are large. You are getting 
the bitmap in Postscript, but it is still bitmap, and it is at a 
resolution that has a lot of bits!
