[JAVA]Request for instructions on converting pages to 120ppi and compression at the same time

I am facing some difficulties to down scale all the pages in the pdf to 120ppi. All of the pages inside the pdf are scanned images,1 scanned image per page. At the same time, I would also like to compress the pdf. However with all the resources provided, the pdf size become larger than original.

I’ve used the following guide to assist me for changing of resolution and also compression:
*Compressing PDF with Images


Could you please also share the sample PDF document for our reference so that we can test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.


Thank for the swift response.
Due to the confidential content in the pdf file we do not have the sample of the file.
However, I am able to proof there is a spike in size after compression was made.

The top was the before compression, the bottom was after being compressed.

Following was my code used for the compression

|||OptimizationOptions opt = new OptimizationOptions();|
|||opt.getImageCompressionOptions().setMaxResolution(maxResolution);| // 120
|||opt.getImageCompressionOptions().setImageQuality(imageQuality);| //10
