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).
