How to remove invisible parts of an image from PDF
Posted on 2014-09-17
I have an Indesign document with an image on the page that I have from a linked image file. Only a part of the linked image is displayed based on a clipping path made in Photoshop. When I complete the work and export the page to PDF, the whole image is really there, just not visible. How can I crop the invisible parts of the image without destroying the original linked file? If it is possible, should I process the file before / on export, or can I do a clean up in Acrobat after. I have tried optimising but that doesnt remove the invisible parts of the images and I can see that about 90-95% of the file space is taken up with image data. Using CS3. Any suggestions much appreciated.
ps. There doesnt appear to be a an Indesign category so tagging with associated applications.
