What is PDF image compression?
Image compression in general refers to the process of shrinking an image file so that it takes up less disk space. Because many image files are stored in PDF format, which is very convenient for a wide range of operations, PDF image compression is an important tool for users who work with images. PDF compression yields high quality images, and eliminates the hassle of working with bulky PDF files.
What image compression solutions exist?
There are different types of image compression solutions available. First of all, there are many online solutions. These can be compatible with different files, including PDF, TIFF, and JPEG, among others. However, these are usually not very powerful, and may not produce high quality results.

These are generally higher in quality and designed for more advanced purposes.
