  • Hi

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, you want to reduce the size of pdf.

    You could try to use spire.pdf to do it, it will reduce the quality of images in pdf.


    static void Main(string[] args)
                PdfDocument doc = new PdfDocument(@"D:\test.pdf");
                doc.FileInfo.IncrementalUpdate = false;
                foreach (PdfPageBase page in doc.Pages)
                    if (page != null)
                        if (page.ImagesInfo != null)
                            foreach (PdfImageInfo info in page.ImagesInfo)

  • This isn't really a C# question. Your questions is how to get a third party product like iTextSharp to generate more compressed PDFs. For questions related to third party products please post in their forums. They support some options to compress PDFs and they also have certain rules around how you have to fill PDFs so they do compress. Asking this question in their forums will help them give you a more focused answer.
