PDF Compress product can be used to compress the PDF file size. The primary elements in making tiny PDFs are picture resolution, image type (bitmap or vector), the number of fonts employed and just how they're embedded, PDF model, as well as the level of compression. In common the greater the PDF version number, the scaled-down the file. Acrobat 5 (PDF edition 1.4) extra JBIG2 compression, which can be superior for the CCITT or Zip algorithms when compressing scanned monochromatic copy (see Table 1). JBIG2 (Joint Bilevel Image Experts Group) encodes compressed monochrome (one bit per pixel) image data from 20:1 to 50:1 for pages complete of text. Like other dictionary-based algorithms (LZW, ZIP) JBIG2 creates a table of unique symbols and whenever a subsequent symbol matches 1 inside the table, it substitutes a token pointing to the table index. JBIG2 also compresses the entire table.

Acrobat 6 (PDF model 1.5) extra the capability to compress the whole file (Clear Up Settings dialog). Nonetheless, because more than 90% of Acrobat consumers have edition five.0 or greater, using PDF one.4 is really a safer option. Acrobat will generally show (having a warning) a a lot more recent PDF version, but new compression schemes will spawn an error when opened in older versions of Acrobat.

Reduce the actual size of PDF files by compressing font, text and graphics. Compressed PDF files may be opened and viewed by Adobe Acrobat Reader all versions with out any issue.

PDF Compress product does use following compression algorithms to reduce PDF file's size:

LZW (Lempel-Ziv-Welch, see Reduce Bit Depth) and FLATE (ZIP, in PDF 1.2) for lossless compression of text and pictures.
JPEG and JPEG2000 (PDF version one.5) for lossy (or lossless for JPEG2000) compression of color and gray scale images.
CCITT (the facsimile regular, Group three or four), run-length, and JBIG2 compression (PDF edition 1.4) of monochrome pictures.

It really is in how nicely you utilize these compression strategies, how effectively the information is described (including image resolution) along with the complexity in the document (read number of fonts, types, pictures, and multimedia) that ultimately decides how huge your resulting PDF file is going to be.

In PDF Compress product, you can select following options to reduce the size to image streams in your PDF files, these options can compress your PDF file's size up to 90% compare to original file size,
