Reducing File Size
It often happens that a file chosen by you to transfer over the internet, is of a memory way bigger than the limit allowed for e-mail attachments. The file transfer may be for a formal purpose of transferring invoices between organizations for further processing or for an informal purpose of sharing media files. In both cases large files are disadvantageous. Here arises the need for reducing the size of a file. Reducing the size of a file means compressing its size in the most convenient way, without having to loose much information in it. Reducing or compression of a file may be lossy i.e. very little amount of information may be lost or lossless, where absolutely no information is lost.
Types of File Reduction Software
There are many software that perform the file reduction process. These software are specifically designed to carry out the task of making the file smaller in size thus occupying lesser memory in the hard disk. There are special image file reduction software. If the file to be reduced is an image, the software reduces its quality to a certain extent, but at the same time decreases the size of the file. These software are available for purchase on the software company's official website or other software related websites. There are various software for reduction of size of different types of files. However, the software companies have manufactured exclusive software to reduce PDF file size.
PDF File Reducer
PDF or Portable Document Format is used by many as it is considered a very safe and secure way of transferring data. But yet again the problem is that PDF files also occupy large memory. This is because of its characteristic to represent the same format when a physical document is scanned into its digital copy. Large memory makes it difficult to store PDF files in the computer and also to share them on the World Wide Web. Hence, to remove this problem, PDF size reducers have been introduced in the recent times. Adobe Professional is one such software that allows users to compress the PDF file by way of PDF optimizer, image quality reduction and also text layout control.
