What is PDF Compression?
PDF compression is the reduction in size of a PDF image in order to make it compatible with processes such as web uploads, printing, and attaching to emails. PDF compression is important because PDF files can be very bulky, given the amount of information that they contain. Because many users want to preserve the original PDF file but shrink it down to a smaller size, lossless PDF compression is a popular solution.
How Does Lossless PDF Compression Work?
PDF compression differs from other types of file compression in the fact that there is no information loss during the process. For example, JPEG is a popular image file format that is widely used for compression, but JPEG has the disadvantage of losing data and diminishing image quality as a result. This trade-off between quality and degree of compression makes the JPEG format a 'lossy' and less optimal alternative to the PDF compression process.
Lossless PDF compression works by reorganizing document data for more efficient storage, while maintaining all of the key information. Information preservation is a primary benefit of lossless compression over lossy types like JPEG. CVISION's own PdfCompressor technology utilizes lossless PDF compression to ensure its corporate clients have access to the vital information in the electronic documents they process.
