What is scanned document compression?
Scanned document compression is the process of reducing the file size of scanned documents, so that they use up less disk space. Depending on the format in which a scanned document is stored, it may be possible to reduce the file size a great deal without losing quality. This is important for people who work with large numbers of files, and who find bulky files inconvenient.
Benefits of scanned document compression
There are several benefits to scanned document compression. First of all, compressing a file allows you to save disk space, instead of wasting space that could be used for something else. In addition, if you upload files to the web, there may be a limit to the size of the files that you can upload. Finally, large files can be a problem when sharing documents via email, often resulting in overflowing inboxes.
Scanned document compression tools
Scanned document compression tools vary in the types of files that they compress and in their compression rates. Some of the best compression rates can be achieved with PDF files, and without any information loss. PdfCompressor from CVISION can reduce the size of a PDF file by up to one hundred times, and its lossless compression algorithms preserve all of the content. Download the free trial version to see.
