Recommend a PDF Writer - non Ghostscript

Hi Folks

I have PDF 995 but it turns an 8MB word document into a 22 MB PDF

PDF 995 is ghostscript based so I would imagine any other GS based product would have the same problems:

Anyone know a free non-ghostscript based product ?

Thanks

Hi,

Not sure if this uses ghostscript, but it might help you...

you could try OpenOffice.org - you can select different qualities of PDF when generating (optimised for email, printing, screen - different sizes result in each) - again, not sure if this is ghostscript based, but I use if for generating PDF for delivering to customers (I run it on a Linux PC, even though my  "desktop" is an IMAC G4 - OpenOffice on Linux is better at generating PDF than the builtin stuff on the MAC (I was surprised at that one... since OS X uses PDF for a lot of rendering!!!)

Hi plq,

I use GSView (http://www.hostgum.com.au) which is based on ghostscript. What I do is, I create my usual PS file, read it into GSView and convert it then to PDF. GSView allows me select a resolution (which is  I assume your problem) the PDF is created. I can go from 72dpi to 720dpi ...
