How to compress a PDF file

Portable Document Format (PDF) has all the elements of a printed document as an electronic image that you can view, navigate, print, or forward to someone else.

However you cannot edit the document in PDF format.

Such documents are created using Adobe Acrobat , Acrobat Capture, or similar products.

PDFs make documents secure making it easier to share between computers and across operating systems.

However, one challenge is the size of the document: sharing chunky files can be difficult.

To ease the process, one can do as follows:

  1. Download an app that compresses PDF files or go to a website that offers the service free such as
  2. Select PDF files from your computer or drag them to the drop area.
  3. Upload the file(s). If they are many, you can upload up to 20 files at a time.
  4. Wait until the PDF compression is completed.
  5. Download each file individually, or you can download all of your files at once in a zipped format.
  6. Also note that some websites or applications for compressing PDF files may produce low quality images e.g blurring images or poor text form.

  1. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many options out there
    that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions? Cheers!

  2. Superb blog you have here but I was wondering if you
    knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked
    about here? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get feedback from other experienced individuals that
    share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Thank you!

  3. I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours lately, yet I by no means discovered
    any interesting article like yours. It’s beautiful price enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content material as you
    did, the web will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.

  4. Howdy! This post could not be written any better!
    Reading through this article reminds me of my previous
    roommate! He continually kept preaching about this.
    I’ll forward this post to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read.
    Thanks for sharing!
