A PDF condenser, more commonly known as a PDF compressor, refers to software used to reduce the file size of PDF files. A PDF condenser can be desirable for several reasons. The most common of these are to free up disk space or make PDF files easier to upload and download, especially because uncompressed PDF files are often very large. PDF condensers are often employed by businesses that circulate a large amount of information in PDF form.
About PDF Condensers
PDF condensers work by employing complex compression algorithms that fall into one of two general categories: lossy and lossless. Lossy compression algorithms can achieve the maximum PDF compression possible, and do so in part by reducing the image fidelity of the document being compressed. Lossless compression algorithms, while unable to achieve the same compression rates as lossy algorithms, compress PDF files while retaining their original quality.
