Compress PDF Files
To compress PDF files means to use software to alter the way the data of PDF files are represented at the machine level so that they occupy less space. Essentially, this means that when you compress PDF files, the documents look the same but take up less of your hard drive and upload and download faster. It is especially important to compress PDF files if you work with them on a regular basis, since large PDF files are very inefficient to work with.
How to Compress PDF Files
The only effective way to compress PDF files is to use PDF compression software. PDF compression software compresses PDF files using one of two general methods: lossy or lossless compression. Lossy compression can achieve the greatest PDF compression, but results in some image quality loss. Lossless compression does not result in any quality loss, but cannot achieve the same level of compression as lossy compression.
