Shrinking PDFs is useful for saving server space, faster web page load times, and easier file transfers. PDF files can become very large if they contain content such as high resolution photos and videos. PDF compression software can shrink the size of PDF files and free up loading time, transfer time and storage space.
Methods of Shrinking PDFs
There are two main types of compression for shrinking PDFs: lossy and lossless. Lossy compression shrinks PDF files by reducing the quality of their content. This provides the greatest reduction in size at a cost to quality. Lossless compression shrinks PDF files without any loss of quality.
