How to Compress a PDF File

Home > PDF Editing Tips > Compress PDF

Over the years, PDF has become a popular way to store files, primarily since PDF files can be accessed across different platforms and more secure, which makes them a favorite among businesses looking to secure their files. However, bulky PDF files can occupy a large portion of disk space, which works against the portability aspect of PDF files. Large PDF files also take longer to attach to emails or on online storage portals when sending such files over the internet. When you have a large PDF file, the most effective solution is to compress a PDF file into a smaller, more portable PDF file size. Let's learn how to achieve the goal.
