1. Upload Your Files

  • To upload your files from your computer, click “Upload PDF File” and select the files you want to edit or drag and drop the files to the page.
  • To upload files from Dropbox, Google Drive or from a website where your files are located, expand the “Upload PDF File” dropdown list and select your files.

2. Compress and Modify

Once all modifications are done, click “Compress PDF” found at the bottom right of the screen. You may also proceed to compress the PDF without doing any modifications.

The Compression Process will do the following:

  • Optimize Images
  • Removes unnecessary fonts and images


More Options:

a. Image Quality Configuration

  • By default, images are optimized to the quality of 65%. If you want better quality images, you can configure them by choosing “Good” or “Best”


b. Image Resolution Configuration

  • The standard resolution for images is 72 PPI. You can change this setting under Image Resolution Category found on the More Options. Resolutions available are: ‘144 PPI’, ‘228 PPI’, or ‘720 PPI’.


c. Convert Images to Grayscale

  • Another way to reduce the size of your PDF document is to convert all colored images to Grayscale. Select “Grayscale” under the image conversion category to automatically convert all images in the PDF file to gray when compressing.


d. Compression Speed Option

  • Optimize large images and skip the small images for compression by selecting “Faster” on the compression speed category.


3. Download Your Compressed PDF Document

Download your file to save it on your computer. You may also save it in your online accounts such as Dropbox or Google Drive, share it via email, print the new document, rename or even continue editing with a new task.
