NXPowerLite Desktop will automatically optimize email attachments as they are sent.
What's new in this version:
Version 7.1.1 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
I had a 180mb pdf which we were unable to upload to our website due to server limits. A quick drag and drop with NXPowerLite reduced the file size down to a fantastic 1.8mb which was then easily uploaded to our website with minimal fuss. Very pleased!
Really easy drag and drop - straightforward to use. Reduced a whole bunch of my Excel, Word, PDF and PPT files by an average of 33%, some up to 75%. Can't see any difference in the files when I open them.
I'm using this to make more space on my machine, which is getting full - it's much quicker and more effective than defrag, or anything else I can think of.
Can't think of any cons
It's like giving my machine a spring clean - I think this will extend the life of my laptop for another 6 months.
There are many folks around the world with either limited or slower connections for whom reducing files is a very important. NXPowerLite is designed for them to help them overcome these limitations with the minimum of fuss.
Although this product isn't for you, we do appreciate you indicating that it works however.
hi Owain Sorry to hear that you had problems. The new version is out this week, I hear that PDF compression is vastly improved on the new version. Here's what they say on their website http://www.neuxpower.com/about/resources/nxpowerlite-desktop-6/: "Improved PDF and PowerPoint compression. We've tested thousands of PDF and PowerPoint files to find opportunities for better optimisation. Version 5 customers might have seen great results on some files but find others would barely reduce at all. With version 6 we've added some great new optimisation functionality, so customers can expect considerably more consistent and effective reduction of both file formats. "
None except it's only a 30 day trial! Wish it was permanent freeware!
Installed NXPowerLite, opened it, easily found and added my PDF files (Windows Explorer type interface), hit "optimize" and presto ... 70% to 80% smaller PDF files (ie 2995 KB PDF File compressed to a 995 KB File) Opened them up and the quality is as good as original! What an awesome utility program!!
Converts embedded photographs in my MS Word reports easily and seemlessly and enables me to email them.
It would be great if it could convert my Word file to a PDF straight after it compresses the photos.
I write structural reports on buildings containing loads of embedded photographs in Microsoft Word; then I have to email them. NXPowerLite seemlessly makes it possible to email my reports with no loss of photographic definition. Without it, I would have no hope of achieving what I need to.
