ShrinkIt1.3.2

16 February 2015

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

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

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