graphicx-psmin v1.1 ------------------- This package is an extension of the standard graphics bundle and provides a way to include repeated postscript graphics (ps, eps) only once in a postscript document. This provides a way to get smaller postscript documents when having, for instance, a logo on every page. This package only works when post-processed with dvips, which should at least have version 5.95b! The difference for the pdf file is minimal (as ghostscript already includes only a single copy of graphics files). See for more information the pdf documentation of this package. Installation ------------ First check whether this package can be installed by the distribution that you use, since that will simplify installation. For manual installations, the structure and supposed location in a TDS compliant TeX-tree is shown in the overview below. In words, graphicx-psmin.sty should be available to LaTeX.

graphicx-psmin – Reduce size of PostScript files by not repeating images
The package is an extension of the standard latex-graphics bundle and provides a way to include repeated PostScript graphics (ps, eps) only once in a PostScript document. This leads to smaller PostScript documents when having, for instance, a logo on every page. The package only works when post-processed with dvips, which should be version 5.95b or later.
The difference for a resulting distilled PDF file is minimal (as Ghostscript and Adobe Distiller only include a single copy of each graphics file, anyway).
