* How to reduce the size of a pdf file
** Use libreoffice
Open the file with libreoffice. Then export it as pdf with low resolution to reduce
the file size.
** Use ghostscript
You can use the command ~gs~ to call ghostscript. ghostscript is a PostScript, and PDF language interpreter and previewer.
Let's try to reduce the size of the "cvjb.pdf" and then write it as "output.pdf"

Check the manual:
#+begin_example sh
