ShrinkIt

ShrinkIt [Detail]

Frustrated with oversized PDFs adding weight to application bundles, the talented team at Panic created ShrinkIt, a developer tool that automates the process of stripping needless metadata from PDFs.

Removing swatches, patterns, preview bitmaps and other needless metadata by passing it through Apple’s PDF processing results in considerably smaller files, in one example shown reducing a 188K file to just 4K. Quite a difference.

If your workflow involves PDFs in any way, you might want to download a copy, absolutely free. Thank you Mr Cosgrove.
