Making PDF files smaller
PDF files are great by nature, as they are secure and easy to transfer. Sometimes though, they balloon in size when they are filled with videos and images. It then becomes necessary to make PDF files smaller. Making a PDF file smaller can be done using various compression methods, but they all fall under two specific types of compression: lossy and lossless compression.
Making PDF files smaller: Lossy and Lossless Compression
Lossy compression will reduce the quality of the images and videos within the file, making a PDF smaller, but destroying any detail that you may have within the file. This compression method is ideal if the quality is not important and you just need the image compressed. Lossless compression will reduce the file size by using programs such as Winrar or Winzip. By zipping the file, none of the content will lose any of its quality, but the file will not be as small as a lossy compression.
