Archimede Ziviello <<... needs to clean up a mess I made in a hurry. I was
placing color jpegs in my illustrator 9.0 eps files (for a frame doc) I
forgot (because time and deadlines are so short) to kill or grayscale the
jpegs before I placed them for call-outs. How can I reduce the eps file size
(resulting from the color info of the place image QUICKLY, and
EFFICIENTLY?>>

I'm not familiar with the current version of Illustrator, but check the
manual and online help under "batch conversion" or "scripting" (macro) to
see if Adobe's provided such a function. If not, have a look at two
products: DeBabelizer, and GraphicConverter Pro, both of which allow all
kinds of funky format conversions and (if memory serves) let you do batch
conversions on all the files in a certain folder. I don't have URLs for
either product, but a Web search should turn them up quickly enough. There's
also some nifty shareware entitle Irfanview (named after the creator) that
does batch conversions; send e-mail to irfan -at- linux -dot- edvz -dot- tuwien -dot- ac -dot- at to
obtain details.
