LuraDocument PDF Compressor is a software utility which lets individuals reduce the size of their scanned images and PDF documents. There is a large number of formats supported, out of which we mention TIF, BMP, JPG, PPM and PDF.
After a surprise-free installation process, you are met with a tabbed interface which enables you to quickly find all the options available. In addition to that, it is intuitive and presents a classical design which closely resembles the one used in the Windows 98 and 95 operating systems.
Upon uploading a file to the software tool, you can choose where to place the resulted item, namely in the source directory or a custom one. You can keep, delete or move the input file, as well as select the output folder for the logs.
This program enables you to configure the quality of the compressed file, resolution, mask codec and compatibility. Aside from that, you can choose between several built-in profiles, dedicated for certain types of documents. For example, the “B/W” can be used for black-and-white items, “Photo” will not detect text, while “Check” is to be used with files which contain fine structures, and the list goes on.
The duration of the compression varies, depending on the size of the uploaded item and your computer’s performance.
It is important to keep in mind that this app does not support batch processing, which is a drawback, seeing that it could have significantly enhanced ease of use.
LuraDocument PDF Compressor is a decent piece of software for compressing PDF and image files. It uses moderate to low CPU and RAM, has a good response time, yet the interface definitely needs more work.
