What are the Benefits of PDF Compression?
PDF files are mainly used for text viewing and editing. However, large PDF files are difficult to manage and require larger storage space. When a PDF file is compressed, the file size is reduced without any loss of information. The compressed file occupies less space and requires minimum transmission time. Moreover, there will be more disk space available in the system. In case of PDF files, the compression process generally refers to image compression.
PDF Compression Algorithms
Compression of PDF files involves the use of different types of compression algorithms. The compression algorithms are of two types: lossy and lossless. Lossless algorithms retain almost all the information of the original file, whereas lossy algorithms selectively remove some part of the information before compression. They can only be applied to sound and image files.
