PDFCompressor – compresses PDF files unbelievable – less is not possible anymore ….

PDF is a document format that can contain a wide variety of elements – text, fonts, images, etc. During the creation and processing of PDF files, it can happen that the generated PDFs contain unnecessary elements or elements exist multiple times.

PDF offers some significant advantages over the previously used image formats TIFF and JPEG and is therefore increasingly being used in the business sector as a standard data format for images and document scans.

Especially in this area of application errors can already occur during the creation, whereby PDF files are generated, which are often much too large, if eg. too high a scan resolution or not the most suitable compression was configured. Also, it may be that first a higher resolution for z.b. OCR processing is required, but after the OCR processing for archiving, distribution or presentation on the screen a lower resolution and thus smaller file size would be sufficient.

It may make sense to unify all PDF files in the company in terms of compression and resolution in order to obtain a uniform standard for all received, processed and archived PDF documents, regardless of where the PDF files came from.

One of the main features of the PDFCompressor component, in addition to the reduction of the resolution, is that PDFs can be created with the latest and best compression methods – JPEG-2000 and JBIG-2 which are not supported by most PDF applications.

Features PDFCompressor:

  • Compresses existing PDF files many times depending on the initial situation and settings.
  • All settings can be managed via profiles (XML files) – Profile: New, Copy, Change Name, Delete, Export, Import
  • Parallel processing with configurable number of processes.
  • Removed – unused pages, unused names, invalid bookmarks, invalid links, etc.
  • ZIP compression of all PDF resources.
  • Optimizing the color depth of images.
  • Image Compression Change – Color, Grayscale, Black & White – LZW, RLE, JPEG, ZIP, JPEG-2000, TIFF Gr.4, JBIG-2.
  • Reduce images – Convert images to new target resolution separately for color, grayscale, black & white configurable.
  • Many setting options for JPEG, JPEG-2000, JBIG-2 compression
  • Lossless and lossy compression on JPEG-2000 and JBIG-2 configurable

           

The PDFCompressor will be available in the product variants – as FM Folder Monitoring, CL Command Line, Web Service and as an eDocPrintPro Plugin. Likewise, the PDFCompressor will soon be integrated into our products AutoOCR, FileConverterPro, PDFmdx as well as iPaper Client or Server.

eDocPrintPro – Use custom page size & page size of the program

For the eDocPrintPro settings there is the option “Use page format of the program”. If this option is active then the page format specified by the printer driver will not be used but the application eg. MS Word controls which page format & alignment is used. However, this only works as long as the page format specified in the application is also available as “Paper Format / Size”.

So if you use a “custom page format” in MS-Word that does not exist in the list of existing page formats, eg. 17 x 24 cm – this format can not be accepted by the printer driver – even if the option “Apply page format from application” is active. In such a case, the A4 format is used.

In order for the automatic selection to work even with a new, so far non-existent “user-defined page format”, an entry for this paper format must be created in the eDocPrintPro printer driver.

PDF2Printer – Version 2.0.5 available

The PDF2Printer version 2.0.5 has implemented a new, much faster and more efficient PDF printing method. Previously, the PDF documents for printing were first converted to a graphics file with the resolution of the printer. However, the printer had a high resolution, eg. 600dpi or more, so large print data was generated, consumed many resources and a printout with many pages took a correspondingly long time.

Innovations PDF2Printer Version 2.0.5:

  • New direct PDF print output without PDF to Image conversion.
  • Much faster print output with fewer resources, especially on many pages and high printer resolution.
  • Alternative: PDF image print with adjustable resolution – standard: 300dpi.
  • PDF image printing also offers scaled print output and automatic page orientation.
  • Configurable timeout for printing – default – 120sec.
