Hello Matthias,

Thanks for your quick reply. I tried the below mentioned options, but it is not 
fine. My PDF page (1 page) size is 3218 KB. To reduce the SWF file size I used 
the option "pdf2swf -s subpixels=1 -s jpegquality=50 file.pdf -o file.swf", but 
the output SWF file size is 923 KB.

I used the --flatten option also, it created the output SWF file size is 1036 

So both of the options not use to reduce the SWF file size. If any options 
available like "-O1" or "poly2bitmap" without affecting image quality, it will 
help to all.
