What is a PDF optimizer?
A PDF optimizer is a program that optimizes PDF files for Internet use. PDF files are very large, and so file optimization requires the compression of a PDF image to fit a smaller size. In PDF compression, the image itself does not change, but the file size decreases. This is an important nuance for uploading and downloading documents, as well as for sharing files by email. Excessively large file size impedes all of these operations.
Balancing compression and quality
One issue that arises with file optimization is the tradeoff between file size and quality. While smaller size is preferred, it is sometimes impossible to achieve substantial reductions in size without corresponding reductions in quality. Out of all image file formats, PDF is the most efficient because it supports lossless compression algorithms, allowing for high compression rates without reduction in quality.
Advantages of a batch PDF optimizer
A batch PDF optimizer further increases the efficiency of PDF optimization by enabling you to compress files in batches, or groups, which allows you to achieve the speed that is needed for bulk scanning. One high-quality batch PDF optimizer is PdfCompressor from CVISION. PdfCompressor can reduce file size by a factor of up to 100x, making it a clear leader in file optimization.
