You won't have to worry about the size of a PDF file ever again. The Free PDF Compressor 1.12 allows you to "shrink" a PDF file to a smaller -- but no less readable -- size. Businesses that rely on PDF files for public relations, internal communications, or promotions do not have to worry about size, storage, and space issues anymore. The Free PDF Compressor takes a host of concerns off the table. Best of all, the program is so easy to use, and there are no annoying steps required in order to achieve the desired PDF file size.

Two Different Tools

The Free PDF Compressor allows users to make a choice between two different compression tools: Flate and RunLength. Flate is a standard compression tool intended for documents comprised primarily of text and images. RunLength is known for consecutive encoding that maintains the pristine condition of the original file.

Batch Conversion Excellence

A batch conversion refers to the ability to compress a number of files at one time. This free tool can compress thousands -- yes, thousands -- of files simultaneously. Anyone who wishes to cut down on the time required to save storage space is going to be thrilled about this feature. An overtaxed hard drive can lead to a lot of new free space once a batch request is made.

Staying on Top of Progress

Whether requesting one file to be converted or several thousand at once, a user is going to want to stay on top of progress. The conversion rate is displayed clearly with this program. The status of conversion jobs is never a question mark.

This program's user interface is simple and easy. There's nothing complex to try to figure out, and the commands are easy to read and execute.
