Not a great user of pdf2swf myself, however..

.. I could supply you both with an example where the exact opposite is the case.

Converting thiis particular  pdf ( a music score of a concert study by
Liszt, so there
is a fair deal of graphic content in it - one which I'd normally
render via Lily anyway )
gets dramatically reduced in size.

So, rather than just general griping, how's about,

-  checking via verbose, exactly what sort of image content may possibly be
   responsible for the size increase of the resulting, swf.

-  which ( if any ) isn't

-  posting an example or two.

This is after all, an open source project, which thrves on user
feedback and testing.

jooi, the above-mentioned Liszt pice contain pbm images.


a demonstratin example?
