Factors that Make PDF Files Large
How to Make PDF Files Smaller
PDF compressors are the best way to compress PDF files that are larger than required. These PDF compressors have the ability to reduce PDF file size, essentially by removing redundancies and ensuring that unessential objects and aspects are minimized. For instance, metadata files may be very useful fro archiving, but when it comes to data storage, these make PDF files very bulky, thus requiring their removal. These compression algorithms or mathematical codes are quite effective as they allow users to perform a few simple steps in order to get smaller PDF files. One can avail of PDF compressors both by online as well as offline mans, in proprietary as well as free trial versions.
Types of PDF File Compression
PDF compression occurs in either lossy or lossless ways. Loss compression occurs when the compression removes all unnecessary aspects of the PDF file to achieve huge file space reductions, while ensuring that the file so created may not seem so different or degraded to the user. JPG as well as JPG2000 are a couple of examples of lossy compression. With lossy compression, file fidelity gets lost with subsequent compression. However, lossless compression prevents any file fidelity or properties loss even though the extent of compression may be a little less. This is quite useful for multi-media applications and some of the common lossless algorithms are Zip, LZW and RLE.
