ActivePDF Introduces Compressor 3.1.0, The Ultimate PDF Compression Tool For Developers

Compressor 3.1.0 Significantly Reduces the Size of Text, Images, and PDF Objects within a Single API

Laguna Niguel, CA (PRWEB) - ActivePDF, the leading provider of PDF automation technologies and digital transformation solutions, is proud to announce the release of Compressor 3.1.0, a new developer API that compresses text, images, and PDF objects to reduce the size of PDF files. ActivePDF Compressor 3.1.0 eases the challenge of managing large-sized files and eliminates the extra work of performing manual compression tasks. Compressor 3.1.0 enables developers to craft automated, high-quality, custom-sized compressed files to meet the needs of their organization.

Compressor 3.1.0 delivers a flexible API, enabling complete control over compression quality, image sizes, image colors, and more. Compressed PDF files using Compressor 3.1.0 require less storage space when archiving, less bandwidth when transferring, they load faster, and eliminate the challenge of email size restrictions.

Viewing speed and overall file performance are also enhanced with Compressor 3.1.0, giving users the ability to do more by eliminating common problems that arise when working with critical information buried in large file sizes. Compressor also helps reduce slow uploads and downloads, processing errors, and interrupted connections.

ActivePDF Compressor 3.1.0 key features include:

  • Significantly reduces PDF file size, including files with embedded images.
  • Controls compression size for various image types embedded within PDF files, including JPEG, JP2, and raw image data.
  • Users can adjust embedded color or grayscale images and reduce Dots-per-inch (DPI) for a more reduced file size.
  • Includes compression optimization, with the ability to remove document structure and compressed PDF objects at the backend.
  • Supports COM and .NET API for easy implementation.

“We talk with developers in many different industries and a common pain point always comes back to managing and collaborating with large PDF files,” says Tim Sullivan, ActivePDF Chief Architect and CEO. “Plain and simple, files are getting bigger and that forces users to turn to different file-sharing platforms, clouds and servers to store and share their files. Add in slow internet connections, and what should be a simple task, turns into a lot of wasted time and money. In response, we created a compression tool that helps solve these problems and put control back into the hands of the developers with a customizable API. Developers have been asking for a flexible, high quality compression tool and we delivered. With Compressor 3.1.0, they can better manage the challenges of large PDF files and turn their focus back to revenue-generating activities.”
