    "Very good program"

    June 23, 2010  |   By RetiredProf

    Version: PDFshrink 4.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I prepare a lot of single-page PDF slides and multi-page PDF documents containing placed pixel images (JPEGs, TIFFs), using Adobe Illustrator primarily, along with TeX and Mathematica, since I find this approach preferable to PowerPoint or Keynote at least for my work flow in preparing presentations. In doing this I've used PDF Shrink repeatedly to shrink the resolution of pixel graphics and remove unneeded metadata after the PDF has been Saved, and have always found it easy to use, effective, and reliable.

    I also like to keep the master copies of my PDF slides with Illustrator's "Preserve Illustrator editing capabilities" turned on so I can quickly reopen and edit them in Illustrator if needed. Unfortunately this seems to mean an overhead of an additional 350 to 400 kB in file size for these masters. PDF Shrink capabilities include an option called "Remove Private Application Data." Turning on this option and applying PDF Shrink to a set of master files can produce copies that are reduced from 400 kB to under 20 kB each

    I've also always gotten quick and helpful feedback from the vendors crew when I emailed queries to them.

    "good but probably not necessary"

    September 5, 2009  |   By tokunagaa002

    Version: PDFshrink 4.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Nice interface, easy to use, good documentation, gets the job done. Program provides easy set up for printing, web, and iPhone applications. However you can achieve similar results with the paid version of Adobe Acrobat. Just go to "save as", select "Adobe PDF Files, Optimized" and select "Settings". You will see options for the sampling, compression method, pixels per inch, and quality. Thus this software is useful only if you do not have the Adobe Acrobat Pro.

    "Did it job well"

    Shrunk my scanned sketches (which consisted mainly of hand-written text on a white paper + some diagrams on a white background) from 11 MB to 860 K without loosing any quality. Excellent.

    "Nothing special if you already have Acrobat"

    March 12, 2007  |   By tahoerob

    Version: PDFshrink 4.1.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    While PDFShrink does indeed shrink PDF files, it pales in comparison to Acrobat. I ran a file (scanned and OCRed with ReadIris) through PDFShrink. The file was about 2.3MB to start. PDFShrink reduced it to 2.1MB. Acrobat 6 reduced it to 548K. I played around with the PDFShrink settings, but wasn't able to get the file much smaller than 2.1MB. Granted, I didn't try too hard.

    So, PDFShrink is good if you don't already have Acrobat. If you do, it's a waste. And batch processing is really weak. Why can't I select a *FOLDER* and have it reduce all PDFs in the folder tree???

    "PDF Shrink Version 3.1.2"

    January 11, 2007  |   By Jane21--2008

    Version: PDFshrink 3.0.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    LOVE this tiny giant of an application.

    It reduced an 87.2M file to a mere 777k.

    It also batch processed 10 files of about the same size in less than 10 minutes.

    Can't live without it!

    "A great little application"

    July 11, 2004  |   By spollak

    Version: PDFshrink 4.0b1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    PDFshrink does what it advertises - much better than anything else I've tried. Unfortunately, Adobe Acrobat Professional 6.02 crashed every time I tried to compress my .pdfs. But not PDFshrink. Reducing a 17MB file to 1.5MB, while retaining document clarity, is what I was after and what PDFshrink delivered. Thanks!

    "Ok, im impressed..."

    February 14, 2004  |   By sha3d

    Version: PDFshrink 3.0.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    my first test file for this was perfect - 92% savings!!!
    I had a 1mb powerpoint file, which i just 'saved as pdf', creating a 12.9mb pdf file.
    Using pdf shrink this became 972kb!!!! (I used settings such as NOT deleting thumbnails, and on MAXIMUM jpeg quality for compression (admitedly only 72dpi which is where i believe the savings came in, but still).

    After viewing both pdfs at actual size there is so little difference that it is barely noticeable.

    "very impressive"

    November 14, 2003  |   By lcp

    Version: PDFshrink 3.0.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I used this on a large number of PDFs, mainly generated by pdftex, but some PowerPoint. Many of the files were reduced significantly: 20-40%. Also very easy to use: just drop a folder of files and it does the rest. It is infinitely better than Acrobat's compression feature.
