Whether to recompress images.
The property SaveNewImageFormat specifies whether images should be downscaled if the original resolution of the image is higher than the value of the property resolution (see also DynaPDF.SetResolution). If the property SaveNewImageFormat is false, JPEG compressed images will be inserted in pass- through mode as long as the image is not a CMYK JPEG (such images must be converted because Acrobat viewer require another byte order).
Default value = true

See also SetSaveNewImageFormat function in DynaPDF manual.

MBS( "DynaPDF.SetSaveNewImageFormat"; $PDF; 0 )
