VB code to reduce the size of images and pdf files

Client is a pig with their files and I would like to run a program which will reduce the size of pdf file and images.  I am not looking to zip them  as of yet.

Thank you

Why don't you want to use zip?
Why do you want to build a wooded bicycle when you can get a sports car for free?
Your client may be a pig,but anything you build with VB will be a snail.

Buy a bigger hard disk.  (If you reduce the size of the files do that mean you want to resize the image to a smaller size or convert colour to black and white?)

Both of your responses did not answer the question.  This is a one time task. So in the future please just answer the question.

Unless you bother to respond to my clarification of just what you want then one can't answer it.  Just what do you want to do to the images to reduce their size.  Actual size or colour reduction?

reduce the size of pdf file and imagesPDF not possible. Images will lose detail as most use lossy compression.

@DavidJohnson
Loss of data doesn't seem to be a restriction - the asker has already said in response to my query the image size is to be reduced (with the loss of data that implies).
