PDF files are larger in size when compared to a document. They are usually compressed for easy transfer when being e-mailed or archived.

Batch PDF compression tool helps in handling and sorting the files with more ease as well. There are two different types of compression: lossy and lossless. Lossy compression involves modern compression techniques and will result in a higher reduction in file size. Lossless shows a smaller compression ratio, but can be used in an application, such as storing important scan results in hospitals, a situation that cannot afford to lose any data.
Batch compression is the sensible solution to reduce work and save time. Batch compression can be performed in a command line interface. The files can be compressed using compact command.
