FAST & SIMPLE PDF SHRINKING AT A GREAT PRICE - I wasn’t expecting much from this App for the cheap price, so I was VERY pleasantly surprised to find that it works perfectly. It compresses my real estate flyers, which are typicalyl 12mb, down to 0.5mb - that is a 96% reduction. This now allows me to upload my flyers to various websites, including our MetroList Real Estate site. It is so simple to use and absolutley foolproof -I have now stopped using Adobe Acrobat Professionall for flyer production and document merging, and use this program and PDF Expert instead, My big beef with PDF Expert is that is does not contain a Compression routine, so that is why PDF Squeezer is required.

Didn’t beat Preview - I bought this to compress a 50 page, photo heavy 11mB file to get down below 10mB to email. Well it did not better than Preview compression. After I bought it I tried the help function. It says: "Like all other PDF compression tools PDF Squeezer does not reduce the size of PDF files that have already been compressed." Why doesn’t it say that BEFORE I buy it? Preview does the same thing. I would like a refund but I do not think I can do that.

Review by Yuri927

Use it all the time, super simple - It does exactly what it promises! It allows you to choose the resolution of the “squeezed” file. The lower the resolution, the smaller the file size, but the files look perfectly fine even at the lowest resolution settings in my experience. This helps a lot with shrinking the file size of scanned documents. Some scanners will save the file as a PDF, but each page will be several MBs in size as if it were a JPEG or some other image file which takes up a lot of space. I have to send a lot of PDF documents for work and some recipients can’t receive very large attachments by email, so this really comes in handy. Having a smaller PDF file also saves space on your computer and generally makes it faster to open. I have this on my dock and use it all the time.

Review by ExplorerGent

Excellent and simple to use - I have been using PDF Squeezer for over a year and have been very pleased. This software is easy to use, does an excellent job of making pdf files much smaller yet with excellent quality in the compressed file. I share often quite large pdf files with many people, and PDF Squeezer has been invaluable in making uploads and attachments much easier and faster. Keep up the excellent work!

Review by Sevikha

Great storage/data plan saver - Good improvement in terms of the overview of a list of PDF's that were processed. I'm still missing the description of the "Sampling" setting in the Filters menu. As it is now, the values "low, average, high" in the Sampling setting, tell me nothing how they affect quality and/or size of the converted PDF, and this setting is a complete mystery to me.
