Lower the size of large PDF documents for uploading and sharing with ease.

FoneDog PDF Compressor offers a simple and convenient solution to compress large PDF documents. Having your files reduced to a lower size, you will be able to share or upload them online with ease. Since the compression process takes place locally, you will not risk to have your documents hacked or the file content stolen by unauthorized users.

The tool opens with a straightforward and easy-to-manage interface. You just need to drag and drop the desired PDF into the app, select the favorite filter if the Automatic mode doesn't satisfy your needs, and save the resulting compressed file at a computer location of your choice. The utility informs you in real time about the original file size and the size obtained after compression. In addition, it calculates the amount of size reduction in percentage terms, so you can have a clear view upon the compression level. The quality of the images within the input PDF can be adjusted in order to get an even smaller output file. However, you can preview the result before saving to disk, so you can see if it is worth keeping or if it needs further adjustments.

To conclude, FoneDog PDF Compressor is a reliable and stable app that returns great file reduction results. Far from being difficult to use, the utility can be managed with ease by anyone, with or without specialized knowledge.
