Compression of large PDF files

Dear developer,

I am currently generating PDFs for my webapplication. However, the PDF files differ in file sizes ranging from 0.5MB to 6MB. I assume this depends heavily on the number of images in it.
Is there a way to limit the file size of the PDFs in order to keep my customers happy with a small file that could easily be attached to an email, for example.

Thanks in advance,

Hello Jeroen,

you can suppress images at all by calling API method enableImages(False)
use some PDF distiller (e.g. ghostscript, Adobe) for compressing images on your local server.
