PdfCompressor 4.0 also converts 14 files formats including TIFF, JPEG, and PDF to either PDF, or PDF/A for long-term archiving.

The Desktop edition release combines the super-accurate OCR of previous versions, including support for multi-directional and low contrast text, with more robust image recognition options including ICR, recognition of handwritten text and barcodes. Advanced image processing features are also supported, such as auto-rotate to readable orientation and image redaction with text expungement.  

In an effort to create the most optimal product for clients, the Desktop edition allows users to view a document in a GUI panel while browsing and converting documents. For additional convenience, users can now right-click on a file in Windows Explorer to "Compress".
