PDF Compression Software
PDF (portable document format) has become the de facto file format for scanned documents, and with good reason. They are easy to use and transfer, and are generally secure. PDF is capable of encapsulating a variety of media, including multiple texts, fonts, images, and graphics. Its adaptability and versatility becomes tempting for users to include as much content as they can. However bigger is not always better, as a larger file size means that it takes longer to upload, send, and download. The larger file also takes longer to open, and may be prone to lagging and delay. The solution to excessive PDF size without compromising content is PDF compression software. PDF compression reduces the size of the PDF, allowing for greater utilization.
What Compression Can Offer
PDF can incorporate a wide variety of different media that may be essential to company documents or business papers. PDF compression does not interfere with the content in any way. The compressed files are an identical match to the original documents. The only reduction to the PDF is in size, not quality. Documents in black and white can be reduced to 1/10th of its size, while documents in color can be minimized up to 1/100th of its size. This is a great boon for employees dealing with lengthy company reports or papers in PDF format. They can upload and send large documents quicker than before and by extension, can share, download, and open files just as quickly. In an office setting it is important for employees to be on the same page in terms of information. They can now be updated in less time with smaller, more manageable files. In addition to improving time efficiency, PDF compression software also increases space efficiency. PDF documents that are too large usually cannot be attached to emails, and files of excessive size cannot be stored in the email server. By compressing the file size, documents can now be quickly and easily attached to emails and sent as needed. They can also remain in the employee's inbox and email server without taking up too much space.
