Aspose slides pdf file is 4 times orginal PPT doc

We are planning to use Aspose Java (Slides, Cell, and words) to generate pdf previews in realtime.

  • Quality of generated PDF preview vs speed we will go for speed.
  • Quality of generated PDF preview vs memory usage we will go for less memory
  • All file sizes for words, slides and Cell will be less than 10 MB

During our tests for this file the PDF size is 14MB where as original PPT file is 3 MB. I have attached the file also

Here are the code snippet we are using
Below are the relevant code snippets

private void slidesPreview(InputStream src, OutputStream dst) {
Presentation presentation = new Presentation(src);
PdfOptions options = getSlidesPdfOptions();, com.aspose.slides.SaveFormat.Pdf, options);

private PdfOptions getSlidesPdfOptions() {

    PdfOptions options = new PdfOptions();
    options.setJpegQuality((byte) 10);
    return options;

Do you have any recommended setting for the above requirements where we just want to create a pdf preview?

Looking forward to your response.

Regards (2.7 MB)

Hi Adnan
I have tried your suggestion and same as you see the pdf is 4.9 MB, where as the original file is 3 MB.
Do you have an ETA for the fix?




Can you please check sample code shared below on your end and share feedback with us if there is still an issue. This sample code generated 1.80 MB file.

Presentation pres=new Presentation(path+“pp.pptx”);
PdfOptions opt = new PdfOptions();
//Presentation pres = new Presentation(“pp.pptx”);“slides_18.5_java.pdf”, SaveFormat.Pdf, opt);

slides_18.5_java.pdf (1.8 MB)
