Super Compress PDF Files to Reduce File Size
PDF (Portable Document Format) files store scanned documents in the same format as their original document. They replace neither the fonts nor the graphics. This is very advantageous for reference purposes. However, it also has a disadvantage to it. It leads to the file size of the PDF file becoming very huge and making it incapable of being published online or transferred over the internet. For this reason PDF files need to be compressed and sometimes, if the PDF file size has to be reduced greatly it needs to be super compressed. Super compression of your PDF files means taking extreme measures in making the contents of the PDF file occupy lesser space in it.
Ways of Super Compressing PDF Files
To begin with compressing the PDF file, first manual editing can be done such as removing empty spaces in the file, changing the font of the text in the file to a basic bold font and converting tables into plain text. When it comes to super compression, the images in the PDF file can be reduced in quality. This quality-reduction of images may be visible only when printed on paper. Another way of super compressing the PDF file is by changing the vector graphics into raster graphics. Raster graphics are as clear as vector graphics; however, raster graphics occupy lesser memory in a PDF file. This is because when zoomed into, the raster graphics display the contents in the form of rectangular bitmaps.
Software that Help Super Compress PDF Files
Super compression of PDF files can be done by all users. It can be done by downloading super compressing software. This software gives the options of the various methods of super compressing the PDF files mentioned above. These super compression software even compress multiple PDF files at once, within considerably less amount of time. If acquiring high-performance super compression software is difficult for users, another simple way of super compressing PDF file is by zipping them together in a zipped folder. By simply moving the files to this folder the file sizes are reduced remarkably. Although zipping is an easier method of super compression of PDF files both the methods deliver impressive results.
