PDF Shrink 4.0 ships

Apago today released PDF Shrink 4.0 for Mac OS X, which it says can reduce most PDF files by as much as 90 percent of their original size. PDF Shrink is an alternative to Adobe Acrobat, allowing users to to produce custom PDFs. Version 4.0 offers optional encryption, a redesigned UI, support for JPEG 2000 image compression for better compression, and a "wizard" for novices to easily optimize PDFs for various uses. A new, intuitive software wizard is designed to simplify the PDF optimization process by automatically creating a new setting based on responses to straight-forward questions. In addition, version 4.0 now allows users to optionally remove embedded "base 14" fonts and to delete unused elements such as metadata, thumbnails, and duplicated data. Users can also modify the resolution and compression level according to the output requirements. PDF Shrink 4.0 runs under Mac OS X 10.4 and later and is available for $35 (upgrades are $14). A fully functional, 10-day demo is available online.
