PdfCompress 1.0, compression tool for Quartz PDF files

For immediate release

Berlin, Germany – September 1st, 2002

metaobject announces the immediate availability of PdfCompress 1.0, the
compression tool for Quartz PDF files.

PdfCompress applies JPEG compression to photographic images contained in
PDF files. This dramatically reduces the size of PDF files produced by Mac
OS X that contain images by up to a factor of 10 without visibly altering
image quality.

PdfCompress can be run from the Finder’s Contextual menu or by dragging and
dropping items onto the application’s icon, and features a settable
compression strength.

PdfCompress has been updated for Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar) and costs US $25
per seat to license. When unlicensed, PdfCompress replaces some images
instead of compressing them. Time-limited demo-licenses are also available.
