Without knowing anything about how the system you're talking about
works, my first thought when getting such a result would be that the
smaller graphic didn't actually get used when rendering the new PDF.
That's the first thing I'd check.

We have a client who is creating PDF files via XSL:FO using our software
product. They had a large graphic (about 4MB) in what turned into a very
large PDF file. When they substituted a smaller graphic (about 1 MB) for
the larger one, it did not change the size of the re-generated PDF file
by much.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why the file size remained so large?
