PDF Shrink 4.2 due at Macworld Expo

PDF Shrink 4.2 on Jan. 15

Apago has announced that the next version of its PDF Shrink program will be released January 15th, in time to coincide with San Francisco's Macworld Expo. The software is used to drastically reduce the size of PDF files, so that they can more easily be loaded and viewed; files can be shrunk by as much as 90 percent. It does this mainly by scaling the resolution and compression of images, as well as removing base 14 fonts when desired. Input for the program can come not just from Adobe's Creative Suite but Apple's iWork and Microsoft's Office.

As needed, PDF Shrink can further delete unused information, such as metadata, thumbnails and duplicated content. The v4.2 update will mainly be a compatibility upgrade, introducing support for Mac OS X Leopard and Adobe Acrobat 8. The most current version of PDF Shrink costs $35, and is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.4 or higher.
