FILEminimizer PDF compresses PDF files and documents and reduces PDF file sizes by 40-75% using balesio's native format optimization technology for PDF file compression. The software optimizes PDF structures and compresses pictures, graphics and objects within a PDF file while preserving the original file format and quality. Compressed PDF files are much smaller, consume less storage space and are ideal for sharing and sending via email. Recipients don't need the software to edit or view the compressed PDF files. Mailboxes, servers, file storage and networks are relieved and loading time is accelerated.

- PDF file compression by 40-75% - a 25MB PDF file is compressed to 5MB in size
- Supports all PDF file types - compress scanned PDF files, "born-digital" PDF documents such as converted Microsoft Office files and other PDF files
- Optimizes pictures, graphics, objects and internal PDF structure to reduce the size of PDF files
- Keeps the original PDF file format - simply edit, view and change it without the need to unzip
- Integrated search function finds all PDF files on the PC for compression
- "Drag & Drop" files directly into FILEminimizer to compress several files at once (batch processing)
- Add-ins for Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes and Windows Explorer

If PDF contain lots of PIC, you can't save too much unless you give up the quality of the PIC.

For PDF with mainly with TEXT, it has a similar result as GHOSTSCRIPT under "-dPDFSETTINGS=/printer" options.

I'd prefer using GHOSTSCRIPT as I can use commandline and it support UNICODE filename too.

Just google "GhostScript compress PDF command line", you will find lots of useful information and hints.

Easily installed and activated. Tried a pdf file of 11753 KB and it reduced to 1410 KB. Thumbs up.

tried minimising a PDF I made a couple of years ago to visualise the wiring of a hearing loop using 20 core cable... I tried using the visually lossless method and it did produce a smaller PDF file but the formatting of the PDF file was trashed and the monocolour graphic items were wrecked into faded incomplete images with horizontal striations going through all of them and the page width reduced causing the content AND GRAPHICS to be wrapped around and the page contents truncated. I get exactly the same output for the "visually lossless display" setting too!

"Visually lossy strong" setting produces a smaller file but the same scaling and wrapping and truncating occours the only difference is the striation pattern is different. ALL compression presets bar the "Identical Pixels" wreck the PDF content and "Identical Pixels" makes no significant reduction in PDF file size from 1,051,755 bytes to 1,051,571 bytes.

more bitmap raster based PDF's like illustrated books can perform better with one I tried using lossy image compression strong setting and it dropped a 10Mbytes PDF down to 5.7Mbytes PDF with little on screen degredation of vector shape text and high resolution print quality photograph illustrations on every page.

So in some cases it fails abysmally, in others it functions and might be ok for making a print ready PDF small enough for website sample or emailing content that is not full print quality.

On my first attempt, FILEminizer PDF 7.0, at its standard setting, reduced a PDF of 202 MB down to 26 MB, a savings of 86%. I'd say it's a keeper.

Could not accept file name with unicode characters which caused program hang and stopped.
Compression ratio is not significant enough to only cut down my 50meg PDF file to 46meg.

I've had FILEminimizer Suite (which includes FILEminimizer PDF) since 2013, and recently used it to shrink a 3-page PDF of scanned images. The original size was shrunk from 1.75 mb to 587 kb, with no loss of clarity.

Installed without any issues,
"Optimized" 9 700K PDFs
it saved 1.3% (718K bacame 708K)

hardly worth the time or effort

Tried a different source this time reduced by 8% ,much better.
So I tried Adobe Acrobat 11 which reduced it by 30% Of course Acrobat 11 was not a free program.

Drag and drop control on the file list box is not working properly. One cannot add PDF files to an existing file list using drag and drop as the dropped PDF file overwrites the existing file list contents and does not append to the list.

One has to use the conventional + button to add extra PDF files to the list.

It is possible to multi-select PDF files and drag and drop the entire group of PDF files.

With drag and drop another failing is IF one mistakenly drags and drops a NON-PDF filetype the program accepts the event triggerand erases the previous list contents but declines to add the incorrect file type to the list.
It should not do any action on the existing list for wrong filetypes.

Excellent software.
You can easily reduce, 25%, 50%, or 75% the size of the original file without noticeable loss of quality. Most notorious in the images.
If it is a file with few images and a small size, you can compress "strong" and reduce up to 90% in size.
Very good.
:)

I've just attempted to minimise 4 PDF I have and none of them are anywhere near the claimed 40% to 75%.....
The best of the 4 only saved 13% and others as little as 7%.......
What am I doing wrong?

Reply   |   Comment by Paul S  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Paul S, the achieved results are HIGHLY content sensitive. Some content is uncompressible, eg text and vector graphics, while high resolution bitmap raster images that are not compressed are usually quite compressible and minimisable if one is willing to reduce image quality/resolution.
This type of product is very much a try it and see... it may work usably on one PDF or it may wreck the format of the content on another PDF.

I really, really wanted this to work as I need this quite frequently, but in my small sampling (from a few past pdf files that I needed compressed) it did not work. Even at custom it strangely made the file a bit larger. Given my sample was small, so it may still work on other files but these were items I previously needed but I did not go further than these.

user, you could always use a virtual PDF printer to re-print the PDF at a lower DPI resolution and let the virtual printer do the resampling and recompressing. Not all virtual PDF printers do decent compression but many do.

I have tried foxit and microsoft, do you recommend another that can think will?

User, I have had success with Adobe PDF printer installed with Adobe Acrobat Pro 8 and Nitro PDF Reader Free 5 virtual PDF printer... you'd have to dig down into the virtual printer properties and try different combinations of DPI and compression methods to get an optimised PDF that is both readable and significantly smaller. Bear in mind these PDF printers may flatten a PDF into a raster image per page and you'd lose the text and link and individual image objects and editable forms etc.

Optimized 1 PFD file , 0MB saved , hmmm

greg, in my atempt, a 1084kb file was turned in 457 > 240 and 145 kb using the option "optimize file" after selecting compression level.

Try it
