Lowering PDF size or PDF quality on converstion

Hello I am wondering if there is a way to lower the PDF size or quality for all docs converted to PDF.  I am converting a great amount of documents that I am printing and I am trying to optimize the time it takes to print out maybe hundreds of pdf files which I have converted using your tool.

Thank you

Please find the below steps to reduce the PDF file size.
Doc to PDF converter supports to reduce the image quality of the converted PDF file, so you can reduce the converted PDF file size, Please refer the below code snippet for more details.

     //word document

  WordDocument wordDocument = new WordDocument("../../DoctoPDF.doc");

  //Create new instance for the doc to pdf converter

  DocToPDFConverter converter = new DocToPDFConverter();

  //Set the image quality

  converter.Settings.ImageQuality = 10;

You can set the PDF document compression level to it is best to reduce the file size. Please refer the below code snippet.
