    Could you include watermarks with this.

    Hi Zacharia,
    You can indeed add watermarks to the PDF pages using something like (Rails):

    Cloudinary::Uploader.multi("test", format:"pdf", transformation:{overlay:"logo",width:100,opacity:50,gravity:"north"})

    Hi guys...

    Is there a way to compress the PDF generated?

    Because I try this with 8 images (JPG) of 200kb, and the result was a PDF of 11MB file size.

    And I have to generated a PDF of 60 to 80 images, and this will generate a PDF of 100MB approx., and this is too much bog, I think.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've set this up as suggested, but the PDF file this is returned is of low quality. Is there a way to preserve the quality of the individual files when they are combined in this manner?

    Hi Erich,

    Can you share some more details (the PDF that was created and the individual images) for us to further investigate?

    If privacy is an issue here, please open a new support ticket ( and share the info there:)
