The need for file compression
The need for file compression arises in any situation in which you have a file that is too bulky for the operation that you need to perform. An example of this would be uploading a file to the internet. Some image files can be very large, and cannot be uploaded without a reduction in file size. However, you do not want to lose the quality of the image. In such cases, you need file compression software.
Why PDF compression is unique
The great thing about PDF compression is that it can produce high rates of compression without any information loss. PDF compression software uses lossless compression algorithms, meaning that you can achieve a significant reduction in size while maintaining a high quality image. For users dealing with large image files, this is a very important feature.
