Cropped PDF images don't retain crop boundary when file is reduced with Bluebeam

Recommended Posts

I'm laying out a document using scans of hand drawings and recomposing them on the page with picture frames.

I like to reduce file sizes using Bluebeam Revu PDF reader before sending them via email. When I use Revu's "reduce file size" function, which crops all PDF content to its frames, I get two different results depending on the source image file format.

JPG source files before and after file size reduction:


PDF source files after file size reduction:



Any ideas what's going on here? Apologies if this isn't a bug and simply user error.
