README
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. Don't forget to
update your filename database after installing the files.

graphicx-psmin.dtx for information how to do this.

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).
