Compressing PDF files
PDF files are the standard when it comes to data storage and transfer, but sometimes these files can balloon in size, hindering its transfer. Compressing PDF files becomes essential, as it will reduce the file size, making it capable of transferring the file to other people.
Known PDF Compression Methods for PDF files
Currently, there are seven formats used for compressing PDF files. They are JPEG, JPEG2000, ZIP, CCITT G3/G4, RLE, Flate and JBIG2. These formats fall under one of two categories, lossy and lossless compression. Lossless compression will not alter the quality of the file; these formats include ZIP, CCITT and Flate. Lossy compression has a higher ratio than lossless compression, but the quality is significantly reduced. These formats include JPEG and JPEG2000. The compression reduces the quality of the images and videos within the file permanently.
