FILEminimizer PDF applies a unique file optimization approach to all PDF files allowing for significant file size reductions of scanned image PDF files, native "born-digital" PDF documents and all other files in the standard PDF format. Our Native Format Optimization Technology (NFO) optimizes all content inside a PDF file and thus is able to reduce its file size by 40-75%. The optimization guarantees that the original file format is not altered or modified, in contrast to classic zip algorithms where users end up with a "zipped" file which they need to then unzip.

Also, the optimization is most efficient on image heavy and graphic rich PDF files, where FILEminimizer PDF can achieve compression ratios which are up to 12 times higher than classic zip software. Usually graphic-rich PDF files are either native PDF files, e.g. brochures or presentations "printed" as PDF or scanned images which are saved as a PDF file during a specified document workflow.

FILEminimizer PDF Optimization

As the user does not end up with a "zipped" file but with an original PDF file, this solution is ideal for sending optimized PDF files via email, not only because of the smaller file size but also because in contrast to zip files which are often blocked, the native PDF file format pass through firewalls and spam filters easily. The receiver doesn't need any special software to view or modify an PDF file.
