Increasing PDF size


#1

Hi Aspose,

I found that after processing images, document size grows. Eventually I found that even replacing image with itself results to document size growth, which seems strange to me:

for (var i = 1; i <= Document.Pages.Count; i++)
{
    var page = Document.Pages[i];
    for (var j = 1; j <= page.Resources.Images.Count; j++)
    {
         var imageResource = page.Resources.Images[j];
         // get the original raw image (ToStream)
         var image = imageResource.ToStream();

         page.Resources.Images.Replace(j, image, 100);
    }
 }

I tried few optimizations on saving document but it has no effect:

pdfDoc.EmbedStandardFonts = false;
pdfDoc.OptimizeSize = true;
pdfDoc.OptimizeResources();
pdfDoc.Optimize();
pdfDoc.Save(sNewFilePath);

I use Aspose.PDF 19.4. Sample files (before: SizeGrowsAfterProcessingImages.pdf (116.7 KB)
and after: Processed.pdf (332.1 KB))

Best regards,
Alex Shloma

Hi @Farhan.Raza,

Do you have any ETA for this issue? Without a fix for this, customers are unable to email most PDFs since their file sizes are now much greater than the thresholds they have internally for emailing.

Best regards,
