Zip a PDF
Most PDF users want to make their PDF files smaller at one time or another. Since zip compression is the only type of file compression most users are familiar with, most users try to zip a PDF. However, zipping a PDF isn't the best way to go about compressing it. First of all, when you zip a PDF, you have to unzip it every time you want to view it, and unzipping a file restores it to its original size. Secondly, zip is not the most effective method for PDF compression.
The Alternative to Zipping a PDF
If it isn't effective to zip a PDF file, how can you make it smaller? The answer is PDF compression software. Using PDF compression software instead of zipping PDF files allows you to powerfully and permanently compress them. Since PDF compression alters the data representing PDF files so that it takes up less space, there is no need to zip and unzip PDF files.
