PdfCompress is an OS X utility for reducing the size of PDF files. The PDF files produced by OS X's Quartz rendering system are beautiful, but huge, and therefore often not usable for posting on the Web or sending via e-mail. The reason for these gargantuan file-sizes is that Quartz doesn't compress photographs and other pictures using the efficient JPEG photo compression method, instead using a different method that only yields good results for line art.

What's New

Good app, but for 10.6 you should stay with v.6.3.1 . Newest version are 10.7 only.

I already use it in 6.3.2 version on a macbook pro with mavericks; but on an old imac with Snow Leo, it refuses to launch. Can fix this, as no earlier version is avalaible on the developper's website?

Given the modesty of both its task and its output, this is wayyy too expensive and always has been. $4 would be more appropriate — and I’ve held that opinion far longer than I’ve been aware of the existence of PDF Squeezer, which is of like quality (though easier to use) and costs only $3.99.

And if that’s the new icon above, I fail to see any improvement over the previous one, which was unmemorable at best.

Very expensive software for what it does. PDF Squeezer works great for $4 and you can preview the document prior to committing.

I'm a teacher and have been using my ScanSnap S1500M to convert a lot of my resource and workbooks to PDF files. Beats running to the copier. Cumulatively, my school folder does grow pretty large.

I put this app to work yesterday with great results. For example, I took a 65 page book on writing with lots of graphics and obviously text, which was 37.9 MB. Ran it through PDFCompress and the result was 11.1 MB. Multiplied by the number of these PDF files I have, there will be a huge savings in disk space. Putting the original and the result side by side, the only loss in quality was a very slight amount of contrast and a tiny loss of crispness of text-very slight and acceptable for virtually any PDF I have, and would have been unnoticeable had I not compared out of curiosity. Excellent program.

I got a quick email reply but the demo license code in it did not work.
Don't loose your time with people who multiply obstacles to testing their stuff.
