The basics of PDF compression

As multiple revisions of the same document pile on top of one another, they inevitably lead to a bigger file that’s slower to open, is more prone to crashes, and is generally a pain to upload online. With PDF Extra’s compression tool, you can clean all of this invisible data that is eating up your storage space and optimize your document for email and web uploads in a single click.

Another use case for PDF compression is when you’re dealing with image-rich files, such as presentations or marketing materials. By choosing the appropriate image compression settings, you can substantially cut back the size of your files while preserving the highest possible quality.
