In Snow Leopard, I could create a custom ColorSync profile to reduce PDF size (but not with quite as a dramatic drop in quality as the default PDF Reduce File Size) and it would show up in Preview as an option.


Now, in Lion, I still have the profiles, but they do not show up in Preview as a choice.  I also cannot edit the default Reduce File Size profile in ColorSync as it is perma-locked.

The solution I realized involves the following: Right click the PDF file you desire to work with and then select "Open with..."Select the "Colorsync Utility" applicationThe Colorsync Utility will open up with your PDF fileAt the bottom of Colorsync Utility status bar, you can select the quartz filter you wish to apply (including any custom ones you made)Press "Apply"Save the document I hope this workaround can hold up for now. I do admit I miss the ability to see and use my quartz filters right out of preview. Take care.

This folder is hidden in OS X Lion. Press "Shift+Command+G" and type in "/Users/YOURNAME/Library/" in the path to be directed to the Library folder. Best of luck.
