How to reduce the size of exported PDF files?


You may notice that sometimes PDF files exported from ABBYY Recognition Server have bigger size than the original ones.

Let's look at how the program works before searching the way to reduce the file size:

The said above means that the option "Quality" in Output Format Settings for PDF files influences not only quality decrease but quality enhancement as well. For example "Quality" = "100%" does not produce the PDF file with the same quality as the original PDF file. "Quality" = "100%" means that the output PDF file will have higher quality.


To select optimal quality/size ration we recommend setting "Quality" = "10%". If the result is not satisfactory increase the option value until the quality/size ratio satisfies you.
