When you shrink a PDF file, you reduce the amount of disk space it takes up as well as the amount of time it takes load, upload, and download that file. Large PDF files are very common, so PDF compression software was developed to shrink PDF files. Since then, the field of PDF compression software has become extremely advanced, with some software capable of shrinking PDF files up to 100x.
Shrink PDF Software
Shrink PDF software, or PDF compression software, can bring all of your PDF files down to a very manageable size. PDF compression software can shrink PDF files using one of two general PDF compression methods. The first of these is lossy compression, which shrinks PDF files the most, but at some loss to image fidelity. Lossless compression, while unable to achieve the same compression rates as lossy compression, can shrink PDF files without any loss whatsoever.
