ShrinkIt 1.1

Free utility from Panic; losslessly shrinks PDFs by running them through Mac OS X’s built-in PDF engine. See Dan Frakes’s review at Macworld — which review, Cabel Sasser notes, is 17 words longer than the source code to ShrinkIt itself. Note that ShrinkIt wasn’t designed for typical (for users) PDFs-as-documents, but rather for PDFs-as-vector-images; in Panic’s case, for resolution-independent user interface elements.
