Looking to reduce the file of a PDF document to just 600KB? Join us, as we are about to show you the ultimate way. It takes 1 click and just 30 seconds.

Here are the most common reasons to compress a PDF:

  • Usually, websites have an document upload size limit;
  • Sending documents via email is easier when they're smaller;
  • Your disk is going to thank you, since you're using smaller files.

Regardless of the reason, we know one thing, and we'll show it to you now: the easiest way to compress a PDF down to 600KB.

How to compress a PDF to 600KB

  1. Pick the document: Upload or Drag & Drop it;
  2. Select the compression method or leave the settings as they are;
  3. Wait 30 seconds and then download the freshly-compressed PDF.
Resizing a PDF

That was literally it. You've just compressed a PDF to only 600KB!

Is my PDF affected by compressing it?

No. Compressing a PDF means reducing the size of the document, without touching the content of the file.

Actually, let us tell you what's going on "behind the scenes" of our system when compressing a PDF to 600KB. It looks for data that is:

  • A. Repetitive and doesn't serve a purpose;
  • B. Removes that data only if it's not going to hurt your experience using the document (or your user's, if that is the case).

Example: Almost every uncompressed PDF file has extra, repetitive data that only increases your file's size. That's the kind of data that we get rid of.

Below you can see a bullet list of things that remain unchanged when compressing your document to 600KB:

  • Text;
  • Fonts;
  • Images;
  • Page settings;
  • Colours;
  • Tables.

What happens after compressing my PDF?

Our system creates a copy of the original document, only now it is a file without any extra data that raises the size of the document.

As for your old file, since we care about your privacy, here's what happens:

  • Our system deletes the old file a few hours after compressing it;
  • The new document can be seen in your dashboard, where you can re-edit, delete, share, or privately-share the 600KB PDF file.

You are the only one who's making changes to the PDF document. Why not also see how to merge two PDFs?
