CompressionΒΆ

This menu changes the compression settings used on images in a PDF when it is created by PDFCreator. Compression reduces the file size of a PDF with a possible loss in quality.

There are two types of images You may choose to compress: Color and Greyscale Images and Monochrome Images. Each compression can be enabled separately with the following settings:

Compression Type: Select the type of compression to be used when compressing image objects. For JPEG compression, you can also set the compression level. A high compression reduces the file size, but also reduces the quality of the images. When set to manual, you can enter a compression factor to optimize the size/quality ratio.

Resample: Resampling is when an image’s pixel size is changed and therefore the amount of pixels that are used is changed. Set the dpi (dots per inch) value, that the images will have when compressed in a PDF.
