Why do I need to compress PDFs?
Compressing PDFs is not only a need, but it is a must. Critical problems can arise if you choose not to. The obvious problem would be you running out of memory. This can always be solved by increasing your memory capacity but it can only work for so long. Compressing files is much more efficient. A more serious problem would be if you ever decided to send the PDF as an email attachment, and you are not able to do so because the file was simply too large. Compressing the file upon scanning or converting can erase those problems.
How does compression work?
When the actual compression takes place, it is a complicated process but to put it in simpler terms, the computer uses various algorithms, whichever best fits the file you are trying to compress, and it can greatly reduce the size. If you had doubts as to whether the contents of your documents will be the same before and after compression, there is no need to worry. One of the objectives of compression is to keep the file unchanged because otherwise compression would just be deletion.
How do I start compressing?
To start compressing your PDF files, you just need to find a software that has these capabilities. A software that I would recommend is CVISION's PdfCompressor.
