Need a solution for reducing print spool file size. Under java 1.4, printing tiff image resulted in hugh spool file. Attached is a sample program using JAI and Java 2D. The included test image is 1200x800 of compressed size of 5K, the resulting spool file is [url removed, login to view] on a HP laserjet. Printing in Windows Imaging resulted in spool file of 192KB. I am looking for a java solution (e.g. prescale, offscreen image) to reduce the spool file to be compatible with Imaging. If prescaling is used, the quality must be compatible with that from Imaging. The solution must run under java 1.4 and above.
