In order to shrink PDFs, you need to have PDF compression software. PDF compression software has become highly advanced in recent years, and can shrink PDFs to a fraction of their original size. Some software to shrink PDFs includes other PDF features such as OCR to make PDFs text-searchable, and the ability to convert other file types to PDFs that can then be shrunk.
Why Shrink PDFs?
The PDF format, although excellent for accurate document representation and information sharing, can result in very large files. Large files take a long time to upload and download, drive away website visitors and take up an unnecessary amount of disk space. When you shrink PDFs, you eliminate all of these problems and retain all of the usefulness of the format.
