Use it all the time, super simple

It does exactly what it promises! It allows you to choose the resolution of the “squeezed” file. The lower the resolution, the smaller the file size, but the files look perfectly fine even at the lowest resolution settings in my experience. This helps a lot with shrinking the file size of scanned documents. Some scanners will save the file as a PDF, but each page will be several MBs in size as if it were a JPEG or some other image file which takes up a lot of space. I have to send a lot of PDF documents for work and some recipients can’t receive very large attachments by email, so this really comes in handy. Having a smaller PDF file also saves space on your computer and generally makes it faster to open. I have this on my dock and use it all the time.

Excellent and simple to use

I have been using PDF Squeezer for over a year and have been very pleased. This software is easy to use, does an excellent job of making pdf files much smaller yet with excellent quality in the compressed file. I share often quite large pdf files with many people, and PDF Squeezer has been invaluable in making uploads and attachments much easier and faster. Keep up the excellent work!

Great storage/data plan saver

Good improvement in terms of the overview of a list of PDF's that were processed.
I'm still missing the description of the "Sampling" setting in the Filters menu. As it is now, the values "low, average, high" in the Sampling setting, tell me nothing how they affect quality and/or size of the converted PDF, and this setting is a complete mystery to me.
