|You haven't said whether the resultant PDFs are for printing or for web
viewing. And are you referring to a PDF of one page, letter size, or many

For printing you can get away with 260 dpi images.
For web viewing try 96 dpi, as has been suggested.
For a many-page PDF of course the file will be large.

compress these files in GIMP so that the resulting PDF will be of
