Freeware for compressing your PDF image files
Windows 2003 / Windows 7 / Windows Vista / Windows XP
ORPALIS PDF Reducer Free is a PDF resizing program for Windows PCs.
There's a lot to love about the PDF format. It looks professional, it can be opened on pretty much any device, and it's easy to use. The one real problem with the format, though, is that it tends to be quite a memory hog. PDF files take up a lot more space than one might think, and an unfortunate number of people sped too much time waiting to open or send these files during a business day. That's why PDF resizers are now so popular, and why it's a good idea to look at a program like ORPALIS PDF Reducer Free.
The ORPALIS PDF Reducer is, as you might imagine, a free program. It does precisely what you would think it does - it reduces the size of PDF files through a few type of technical trickery. This makes it easier to post, send, or host the files, and it even makes it a bit easier for you to open the files quickly on older machines. This isn't a huge revelation in terms of technological wizardry, but it is a good program to have on hand if you are on a slow connection or are running an older machine.
For most, ORPALIS PDF Reducer Free is going to be more of a luxury than a necessity. It's rare that you will need to resize a PDF file, but it's nice to have a good tool on hand if you do need to do so. This is a good program, though there are probably a few better paid programs out there. All in all, though, this is a good download.
