I am writing a paper using PDFLaTeX. In this paper I insert few .eps pictures I export from ArcMap. These images have been exported in format .eps with a dpi of 600.
My problem is that when I build the .pdf and go to the pages with these .eps images, the pdf requires almost one second to display the image and then show the text surrounding it. Furthermore, this resulting pdf, containing 6 .eps images, 15 pages and a few raster images, is 50,000 kB, which seems a lot to me.
I suppose the problem is due to the excessive weight of the .eps images (which ranges according to what I am exporting in ArcMap, some of them are few MB, others also hundreds of MB), therefore my question is: what should I use as export dpi to have a lighter and faster-loading pdf avoiding quality loss in my images?
