[OS X TeX] PDF resolution redux

Hi everybody,

there has been some discussion on the subject of the resolution of  
PDFs created by Pdftex before, but I still have a question. AFAIK  
pdftex preserves the resolution of included bitmap graphics, while  
fonts are resolution independendent. So far, so good. I'm currently  
working on my thesis and have different kind of bitmap graphics, most  
of them in quite high resolutions. My problem is that the final PDF  
ends up quite big and many pictures actually have a far deeper  
resolution than needed. My question: Can I somehow scale down all the  
included images to the same dpi, let's say that all images don't go  
over 1200dpi?

is generally accepted, 'don't fly too high', or whether it might also  
be thought of as: 'forget about the wax and feathers, and do a better  
job on the wings." Stanley Kubrick
