I have a PDF that I would like to shrink for a presentation. PDF viewers, like evince and Apple's Preview do a great job of zooming out. How can I reproduce this type of zoom-out outside of the PDF viewers? Ideally, I'd like a command line or other automatable solution. Right now I am taking a screenshot of the zoomed out PDF viewer!
Here is an example of the type of rescaling I am talking about:
Screenshot at 100% zoom in evince:
Screenshot at ~20% zoom in evince: (despite that evince says 50%). This is what I would like to get as output:
Rescaled image using ImageMagick with
convert orig.pdf -resize '25%' convert-zoomout.png. Note how the lines are small and indistinct. Unfortunately, scaling in Powerpoint produces similar results as this.
