In need of resizing your PDF document to 1MB? We can help you do that for free, and in just a bit of time (30 seconds, to be precise).

Let’s start with three of the most common reasons to do this:

  • Some websites are strict and they want really small files;
  • Once a file is compressed, it’s easier to it send via email;
  • You get to save a lot of memory on your device’s disk.

No matter the reason why you’re compressing PDF files to 200KB or even less, we’re here to help you.

How to compress a PDF to 200KB

  1. Pick your document and upload it (or drag & drop it);
  2. Choose the compressing method or leave as it is;
  3. Wait ~30 seconds & download the 200KB PDF.

Now you’ve successfully compressed a PDF document to 200KB.

Does my document change if I compress it?

No. Upon compressing a file, we guarantee that it’ll stay the same as it was, content-wise. The only thing that changes is the size of the file, to 200KB.

Moreover, here’s what actually happens behind the curtains: our system looks for any data that specifically:

  • A. Doesn’t serve a purpose;
  • B. Deletes it only if won’t affect your experience using the PDF.

Example: Pretty much ever uncompressed PDF document contains extra information such as repeated data → That’s the kind of data that we delete.

“Then what remains unchanged?”, you may ask. Here’s what stays the same as before compressing the document:

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

What happens after compressing my PDF?

After compressing the PDF document, our system generates a new file that weights 200KB.

We do care about your privacy, and we believe that it belongs to you. Hence, this is what happens after compressing a PDF to 200KB:

  • The before-compression document gets deleted a few hours after compressing it;
  • The new document (the compressed one) is available in your dashboard, where you can re-edit, save, delete, or share it.

You’re the only one who controls their documents here.


What do I do after I resize my PDF?

The possibilities are endless, so to speak.

We offer a suite of PDF-editing tools that work to the same level of efficiency, simplicity and speed — you can delete pages, split PDFs, merge PDFs and so much more.
