CTAN upload: graphicx-psmin

On Wed, 21 Sep 2005, Hendri Adriaens submitted a new package
This package is an extension of the standard graphics bundle and
provides a way to include repeated postscript graphics (ps, eps)
only once in a postscript document. This provides a way to get
smaller postscript documents when having, for instance, a logo on
every page. This package only works when post-processed with dvips,
which should at least have version 5.95b! The difference for the pdf
file is minimal (as ghostscript already includes only a single copy
of graphics files).

graphicx-psmin – Reduce size of PostScript files by not repeating images
The package is an extension of the standard
latex-graphics bundle and
provides a way to include repeated PostScript graphics (ps, eps)
only once in a PostScript document. This leads to
smaller PostScript documents when having, for instance, a logo
on every page. The package only works when post-processed with
dvips, which should be
version 5.95b or later.
The difference for a resulting distilled PDF file is
minimal (as Ghostscript and Adobe Distiller only include a
single copy of each graphics file, anyway).
