Compressing PDF files to save disk space
One common reason for PDF compression is that PDF files can be very large in size, resulting in inefficient use of disk space. When storing PDF files in large quantities, the large file size can quickly become a problem as files accumulate. Compressing PDF files is an ideal solution for users who want to store all of the necessary information without wasting disk space.
Compression for purposes besides disk space
In addition to saving disk space, PDF compression serves a variety of other useful functions. One important use of PDF compression is to optimize PDF files for the Internet. When uploading files to the Web or sending them via email, it is difficult to work with files that are extremely large. Large files result in long upload times, overflowing inboxes, and other inconveniences. For this reason, it is helpful to compress PDF files.
Tools for compressing PDF files
There are different types of tools available for PDF compression, ranging in price, quality, and features. For industrial use, it is important to have a compression tool that has batch processing capabilities, allowing you to compress large groups of files quickly. In addition, you should think about the types of files you might need to compress, and look for a tool with the appropriate conversion capabilities.
