Simple-to-use PDF compression tool.

Overview

PDF Squeezer is an easy-to-use PDF compression tool.

It reduces the size of large PDF documents by compressing images and removing irrelevant information. This will help you obtain important savings in bandwidth costs, digital storage costs and network transmission times.

Features:
  • Simply drag and drop your file into the application window
  • Choose from predefined compression filters or create your own
  • Compress all files in a folder and its subfolders
  • Batch compress multiple files
  • Finder, Safari and Preview ad-on available via the share menu
  • Support for password protected PDFs
  • Automatic compression and save with 'One-Click-Compression'

What's new in PDF Squeezer

Version 4.2:
New Features
  • The interface has been updated to match the new design of macOS 11 Big Sur.
  • You can now extract all images of a PDF file.
  • Options have been added to set custom file metadata for keyword, subject, producer and creator. To remove metadata, just leave the text field blank.
  • View information about your PDF files like author, creator, image count and more.
  • Editing multiple compression profiles at once is now possible.
  • Exporting and importing multiple compression profiles into one PDFSCP file is now possible.
  • If the file extension of the original is hidden, a compressed copy of that file will now also hide the extension.
  • The command line tool is now able to compress all files of a folder so you don't have to provide the path for each file anymore.
  • The command line tool now shows you the progress if you compress multiple files at once.
  • Due to a bug in macOS 11 the compression rate is no longer displayed in small font in the profile pop up button. It will return as soon as Apple fixes that bug in a future version of macOS.
  • The Danish and Norwegian translation has been improved.
  • Updating the modification and creation date has been moved to the profile settings.
  • You can now drag the main window by clicking and dragging anywhere in the background.
Bug Fixes
  • Adding tags in the save panel were not being added to the file.
  • For some file types bitonal images were completely blank or black after compression.
  • Sometimes files that are password protected have been deleted without saving the compressed version.
  • In some situations the app did crash after launch on older Macs.
  • Dragging a PDF from Apple’s Mail app to PDF Squeezer did not always work.
  • The compression engine has been improved for some PDF types.

I use this app almost daily to squeeze down PDFs exported from Keynote. It magically turns 80MB+ PDFs from Keynote into ~10MB files without losing any quality. Tried a bunch of different apps before this one, but the combination of great UI and great results in terms of file size and quality made this one beat out the others.

After a few months of using this program, I've found that this is programs the best, or one of the best compression programs available.. The batch processing saves me so much time, when I have a complete concert band score consisting of 30 or more parts to compress. One of the best features of the program is the ability to easily compare the quality of the original file to the compressed version before you save the file. PDF Squeezer is now one of my favourite programs, right up there with VueScan, Graphic Converter, and PDF Expert, which I use almost every day in my reconstruction of old music.

Effective and beautifully designed tool. I have nearly 600 apps and this one is among the ones I don't forget I have and I get back to use. Responsive developer as well.

I like and have been using PDF Squeezer for years...but is it compatible with Mac OS 10.11 El Capitan...or even being supported anymore? Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it and developer hasn't responded to several emails asking him. Grrr...

A great appli, but it takes too much memory. After two or three use in a row, an 8Go memory goes down to 1 or 1,5Go, it's unacceptable.

Awesome application. Really easy to use, I love the previews it generates with file size display which makes it much easier to to know what youre getting than with using PDF Shrink. Although PDF Squeezer doesn't have as many options as PDF Shrink, the results are very much similar and for a fraction of the cost of PDF Shrink. Love this app! Thank you!

Awesome app for compressing pdf files. Simple, informative and an attractive interface. I have gone completely paperless and have hundreds of pdf's that could use some compression, from now on all my large pdf's are going to be squeezed.

I test a bunch of PDF compression apps and decided this was the best one for me. Price is great. Interface is much better than others. Performed better for compressing ebooks than mac quartz filters (free) but not as well as PDF Shrink ($35). Difference was about 10% either way.
