How to compress scans
In order to compress scanned documents, you need to use special compression software. Because most users work with scanned documents in PDF format, you need to either convert files to PDF before compressing them, or get a compression tool that can perform the file conversion as well. A major advantage of PDF compression is that you can compress files by a significant amount without losing information.
Advantages of batch compression
Batch compression is important for users who work with large numbers of files. Some types of compression software allow you to shrink entire groups of files in a single step. This saves a great deal of time and increases efficiency. For example, batch compression is helpful when you need to shrink down an entire folder in order to send it via email. With batch compression, you can have the files in the size you want in a matter of minutes.
