doesn't compress - worthless
doesn't work - increase the original .pdf size - why doesn't Adobe allow you to compress within the software itself? this is ridiculous that I have to spend time and money to get a 1 page text file to 100kb!!!!

Displays logo on your document
This software reduced the file size, but the read me and initial info doesn't tell you that HUGE logos and URLs are put all over your document. What's the point? There is no way I can use any of the files with all of the text and graphics!! DON'T DOWNLOAD - TOTAL WASTE OF TIME.

Waste of Time
I cannot believe tsw has this product listed, particularly with all the negative reviews. I even went to the product owner's website to see if I was missing something. I tried it several times -- just incase I was missing something. The software DID NOT REDUCE MY PDF FILE SIZE- it did enlarge it slightly.

Used it - it didn't work
First run looked like it reduced a 9mb pdf to 2mb.
However, when I closed windows explorer and then returned to the directory, the size was the same. One time it even showed it reduced a 7mb file to 0mb, 0mb?!?!. That was the tip off, it appears to be all smoke and mirrors. The file size never really was reduced, especially visible when transferring from one drive to another.

This made my file bigger! Surely that can't be right. Don't bother with this tool it won't help.

Not worth the download
Cons: As stated below in many comments, a good PDF size expander but never a good compressor

Worked for me
I just compressed a pdf image generated by Mathematica 5.2 (very bloated) from 1466 kb to 346 kb. That's still bloated, but small enough to squeeze through the web submission form I need to use.
