The easiest way would be to edit the PDF. Run WriteDecodedDoc to get an 
uncompressed PDF, find where the image is invoked, then change the "cm" 
parameters just before the image is invoked. Usually the cm command is 
like this:

width 0 0 height xpos ypos cm

(You can also view it with PDFDebugger, but you can't change it)

if you edit the PDF make sure that the offsets stay identical. (position 
of "endstream")

When done, open the PDF with Adobe Reader and save it. It will be 
compressed again.
