Nowadays, most people take their files from the scanner and convert them into PDFs simply because they are much easier to work with. That is why PDFs have become the file type of choice for most people but there is one problem with them. They usually tend to be bulky and large in file size and that could create a lot of problems. Many people do not realize that shortage of memory is not the only problem that can arise when dealing with bulky PDFs. It is the unforeseeable situations that are problematic.
Why compress files?
A benefit besides saving memory space is that you will be greatly reducing transmission time. The time that it takes to send or receive a file will now only take 1/100th of the time. That means if your file was 100 megabytes, it will now send as fast as a 1 megabyte file. This will save you valuable time especially in time-sensitive situations. Another way it can help is if you tried to email your PDF as an attachment. Most email servers will limit the size of your files so unless you decide to compress, your file will be impossible to send.
Ways to achieve compression
The best and simplest way to start compressing your files from scanner is to obtain a file compression software. There are many choices out there but in my experience, most compression software will not reduce the size of the file nearly as much as CVISIONs PdfCompressor. Not only can it compress up to 100x, but it is also easy to use. To download the full version of PdfCompressor for a trial period, click on the links above.
