Reducing the Size of a PDF File
Reducing the size of a PDF file is often necessary, especially if the file contains high-resolution graphical elements such as pictures, charts or graphs. Large PDF files have a wide range of drawbacks, including consuming disk space, taking a long time to transfer, clogging inboxes, and driving impatient website visitors away. Thankfully, reducing the size of a PDF file is easy with PDF compression software.
Reducing the Size of a PDF File with Software
PDF compression software is by far the easiest method for reducing the size of a PDF file. The specific algorithms used by PDF compression software vary, but there are two general types: lossy and lossless. Lossy compression provides the maximum amount of compression possible, but results in some quality loss, whereas lossless compression preserves the original quality of the file, but does not provide the same amount of compression. Another option is perceptibly lossless compression, which is really the same as lossy compression, except does not produce any loss that is visible to the human eye.
