1.3.2

Shrink PDF file sizes.

Overview

ShrinkIt takes bloated Adobe-saved graphic PDFs, runs them through Apple’s PDF renderer, and saves them back out, making many of them smaller without any quality loss.

Note, though: it’s not really for long complex PDF documents or bitmap images. It’s generally for simple PDF symbols and glyphs you might use in your apps, where saving space is critical.

What's new in ShrinkIt

Version 1.3.2:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.7 or later running on a 64-bit Intel processor

  • Processing is now threaded and significantly faster.
  • It's now properly signed with our Developer ID
  • There's a new icon
  • And it's now Retina-ready
  • Fixed exception when dealing with Unicode file paths
  • Added cool progress bar and gratuitous animation

It shrank some, it nearly doubled the size of others. I'll check back on version 1.1. It's a great idea, and the price is right, but ...

I found a much better, free alternative which works in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Apple does offer to reduce file size using Preview, if you save the document as a new file and choose Quartz filter > Reduce file size. Here's the link to Apple's support document: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Mac/10.6/en/9021.html

On the oficial app web site they say exactly that, the only difference is being batch, so it can automatically do that to a list of files.

Doesn't work. It took my file and made it bigger.

Dragged a 15.9MB PDF file (drawings, diagrams) into the Shrink It box, and the output file was ..... 15.9MB!

I'm guessing it only works on images in PDF's. I don't see how it could shrink a text document.

There are some things inside even a text-based PDF document that can be optimised, I believe. (Don't ask me what, but I think you can subset fonts so only the characters used are stored in the document, etc.)
