ORPALIS PDF Reducer Pro – belongs to the category of applications whose functionality is fully described in its title. As you probably already guessed, this tool is designed to compress PDF documents before they are published on the web-site, sent to storage or transmission via e-mail.
The interface is simple and straightforward. All the user has to do is select the original document, specify the folder to save the optimized version and click on the button «Start». All other actions will be carried out without your participation. In some tests, the document size remained almost unchanged, but in certain cases the compression level can reach impressive 80 percent.
The product is based on relatively simple technology. The program achieves the desired result by manipulating with the characteristic DPI (dots per inch) and recompression of the document with a slight deterioration of image quality. Processing ORPALIS PDF Reducer also gets rid of some not very important elements of a document, such as form fields, annotations, bookmarks, built-in files. However, if you think this approach is unacceptable, you can manually adjust the treatment parameters in the «Settings» dialog box. Special mention deserves the ability to process large number of files in batch mode.
To achieve that, ORPALIS PDF Reducer provides different innovative and highly sophisticated size-reducing techniques which can be optionally applied by user selection:
• Content segmentation to increase compression ratio.
• Automatically applies the most effective compression scheme based on data type.
• Serialization of several compression algorithms.
• Uses innovative automatic color detection mechanism.
• Page layout analysis.
• Embedded raster images re-sampling.
• Embedded raster images re-compression.
• Unused objects removing.
• Remove unwanted specific objects such as annotations, bookmarks, formfields, embedded files…
