The difficulty of shrinking images
Sometimes it is necessary to shrink the size of an image file, but the process can create inconvenient complications. For example, a PDF or a TIFF file may be too large for the purposes that you are using it for, but you cannot shrink it without reducing the quality of the file. At the same time, you cannot afford to have an image with poor resolution, and this creates a constant dilemma when working with image files.
The advantage of batch compression
Fortunately, some types of image compression can give you the size reduction that you need without the quality reduction that sometimes accompanies it. One format that supports lossless compression algorithms is PDF, meaning that when you compress a PDF file, you can create a smaller file without any information loss. With batch PDF compression, you can perform this process quickly for a large number of files.
Batch image shrinking software
This may sound appealing, but you may be concerned about the fact that you are not working with PDF image, because your scanner outputs TIFF files, or you get files of another format from a different source. Fortunately, with universal programs like PdfCompressor from CVISION, you can convert files into PDF from other image formats before compressing them. PdfCompressor can yield dramatic size reductions for large groups of files in seconds. To learn more about PdfCompressor and to test it out on your own computer, download the free trial version.
