    Hi,

    I would like to find a way to compress pdfs created by my scanner. I always choose the lowest dpi (I think I can't go lower than 150) and the smallest file size. The problem is that I need to upload these pdfs on a site that requires sizes of no more than 300KB. After I digitally sign the pdf, it often happens that it exceeds this maximum size.

    I tried using a program called free pdf compress, but, weird enough, the compressed file turned out to be even bigger than the original size, regardless of the options I chose.

    As these are private documents, I wouldn't like to use public sites to compress the pdfs. So I'm looking for a good program that does that.

    Any suggestions? Commercial or not, although I'd prefer freeware.
