Good PDF editing software suitable for use with iGigBook

Post by dbrewer42 »

This is only tangentially related to iGigBook itself, but I thought this forum might not be a bad place to get a recommendation from someone who knows.

I'm looking to find some PDF editing software to help me improve my scores to better match the indexes. I've been surprised at how difficult is is to find a good one. There is just a TON of PDF-related crapware out there!

Ideally the software should have the following features:
* Ability to swap pages around
* Ability to insert blank pages
* Ability to optimize the images inside the PDF (the PDFs I have are HUGE and I think they could be made smaller, which would probably improve the page turning performance).
* Ability to add a table of contents (for using the PDFs in other software).

I know that I could buy Adobe Acrobat to do this, but (call me crazy) I'd rather not spend $279.99 to do these things. :-) Are there cheaper options out there which are still quality software? The Googling I have done so far results in a flood of search results of questionable quality.

Extra points for something which runs on Linux, although I will happily use something on Windows if necessary.

I haven't used it and do not know if it runs on Linux, but CutePDF is free.

Thanks! CutePDF seems to be doing to trick for me better than any of the other half a dozen programs I tried.
