The need for file compression
File compression is important for users who handle high-volume files, such as image files. When trying to share such files on the internet, many people encounter difficulties during upload, or struggle with space limitations. Large, bulky files are generally inconvenient, and many users turn to file compression software to resolve this problem.
Types of file compression
Different types of files have different properties during compression. TIFF files, for example, cannot be compressed to a very small size. This is a major problem because large TIFF files are often created from scanned documents, and users are limited in their use of those scanned documents. JPEG files are not ideal for compression because this results in low resolution. PDF files, however, can be compressed significantly without losses in image quality.
Getting file compressor software
When selection a file compressor that meets your needs, consider both the types of files that you will be compressing and the compression rate that you require. PdfCompressor from CVISION is excellent in its versatility because it can convert many different image files formats into PDF for efficient compression.
