Why Compress PDF
PDF files have a typically large size and sometimes you find it difficult to work with a PDF file unless you reduce its size by compressing it. PDF compression reduces the size of the PDF files, thereby making uploading and downloading them easier and faster. You compress PDF when you send PDFs to someone via email. Compression is especially necessary when you have to post large image files on websites. Uploading and downloading images or text documents, or posting documents on websites becomes a great deal easier if the files are compressed.
What Does a PDF Compression Website Offer
A PDF compression website lets you compress your PDF files without having to install any compressor tool on your computer or even any add-on for the purpose. As these online services can be accessed from anywhere, all you require is an internet connection. You can compress images as well as large text files. You can even compress an image on any website before you download it to your computer's hard disk.
How to Use a PDF Compression Website
To get a PDF file compressed you have to go to any PDF compression website and upload the file. Some websites give you the option to set the compression parameters. In some sites you have to register with them, which involves providing them your email address, while in others you don't have to do any such thing. Most of these are free sites; therefore, you don't have to pay a dime for availing of their services. Just select your file(s) stored on your computer or provide the URL of the image. If you need to compress multiple PDF files, store them in a single folder and zip it, and upload this zip folder. The PDF compression status will be shown next to the file name: whether it is pending, being processed, or has been completed. The process takes only a few seconds, a little longer if there are quite a few files. When the compression is done, you will be pointed to a site where you can see the results and download the compressed file.
