But in the end, you may end up with a smaller and cleaner PDF file suited to your exact specifications. You can use GIMP to import the PD...

Usually, a short introduction to your initial post, e.g. "Hey all, I'd like to share with everyone..." makes the nature of your thread clearer to others from the get-go. Just saying.
