We’ve just bought a server copy ofto try and reduce the size of our archive of PDFs. However I noticed when running it that it seems to have some other undesirable effects.
If I use the following command line to compress images and fonts:
Pdfcompressor.exe -ci jpg -cidown -cidownres 150 -cidowntype 3 -gi jpg -gidown -gidownres 150 -gidowntype 3 -mi jbig2 -midown -midownres 150 -midowntype 3 -subsetfonts -compressfonts input.pdf output.pdf
I find the following has also happened:
- Removed Title, Author, Keywords and Subject properties
- Replaced the ‘Application’ and ‘PDF Producer’ properties with ‘VeryPDF’
- Reset the PDF version to 1.5
This seems to happen with every PDF. Is this intentional? I can’t afford to lose the properties of our PDFs!
Thank you for your assistance,

Thank you - I've tried the new version, unfortunately it is still removing the Title, Author etc. Attached is a sample PDF I am trying to process. It has a title ("MGN 432 (M+F) Safety during transfers of persons to and from ships") and an author - R4S. Running pdf compressor removes both.
Can you help?
