I have a PDF that has already compressed and somewhat artifact-y images, and I'm using Ghostscript to prepend a title page to that PDF.
However, I cannot find any way to tell GS to just use the existing images as-is without reprocessing them, and now I'm feeling as if it's something to do with how GS works, i.e. you can't recompile/link a PDF without reprocessing its images.. Is that true?
I can raise the DPI setting in GS, but it'll go from 5MB to 60MB while still looking worse.
Is there any better alternative to GS that'll do what I need (preferably that will compile on OS X)?
