Free PDF compressor
A free PDF compressor can be an invaluable tool for people looking to compress a small number of PDF files. Students with large assignments to submit, owners of small websites, and anyone emailing PDF files can benefit from a free PDF compressor. Most free PDF compressor software is perfectly suitable for small PDF compression jobs, and can make the lives of small-scale PDF users much easier.
The Pros and Cons of a Free PDF Compressor
Free PDF compressor software is generally good for compressing a few PDF documents here and there. The main advantage of a free PDF compressor is that it will compress individual PDF files free of charge. Many free PDF compressors embed a watermark in the PDF file being compressed; this is undesirable in some cases. Another drawback to free PDF compression is that no free PDF compressor will compress batches of PDFs at a time. Free PDF compressor software also does not generally allow the user to customize their compression settings.
