CTAN upload: graphicx-psmin

Date: September 23, 2005 12:26:04 PM CEST
On Wed, 21 Sep 2005, Hendri Adriaens submitted a new package graphicx-psmin to CTAN. 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).

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).
