I have scanned 58 pages into a PDF. The file size of this orginal pdf was 8 MB. Unfortunately the page order was a little messed up when I scanned so I used Preview to reordered some of the pages by simply dragging the pages around in the thumbnails bar. After doing this and saving the pdf the size had increased to 23 MB! What happened? And how do I reduce the file size?
I tried the reduce file size quarts filter but it reduced the resolution which made the pdf unusable.
I see no reason for the file size to increase from just reordering existing pages, is there?
