The Need for PDF Compression
PDF compression is required when you have large PDF files that need to be sent by email through various recipients. Email software usually has a limit on the file size. If the PDF file is large, it will take time to upload else it will not upload at all. In such situations, it is necessary to reduce the size of the file. This can be done using PDF compression software. PDF compression software will compress the file so that it can be easily sent through email or posted to websites. It is highly useful in situation where a PDF file has to be sent urgently and the file is of a considerably large size.
How Does PDF Compression Work?
PDF compress software works by using a compression algorithm. The compression algorithm removes all duplicate file objects to reduce the size of the file to less than half of the original file size. The entire process takes just a couple of minute's time. You have to specify the files that need to be compressed in the software's user interface. The software will automatically retrieve files that need to be compressed and put them into the designated output folder. The entire compression process takes very little time. Latest compression software comes with an easy-to-use interface through which you can quickly carry out the compression process. You can also use a command line operation to execute the compression process quickly.
