Shrinking files or more commonly referred to as file compression is much more important than most people give it credit. A lot of people might assume the only goal in file compression is to save memory on your computer but that is wrong. File compression is a lot more than that. A lot of hidden troubles and problems that you probably never think of can occur if you choose to skip out on file compression. Some of these problems include transmission time and email attachments.
How will shrinking files help?
One of the biggest problems that might occur is when you try to email these scanned files as attachments. A lot of email servers have limits as to how big the file can be. PDFs in general tend to be bulky in size so without compression, sending the file will be impossible. Another issue that might arise is when you need to send a file. Large files are of course going to take longer and in time sensitive situations, that can be a big problem. That is why if you choose to compress the file to as small as possible, you will be prepared for a scenario such as this.
