Smallpdf: A Free Conversion and Compression PDF Utility

Sometimes it’s not the huge, mega-enterprise, complex platforms that really make your day. Today we received some sample one-sheets from our designer that looked fantastic but were 12Mb when I converted them to PDFs. To be honest, I haven’t a clue about PDF compression so I went and Googled for optimal settings and tutorials.

What I found was a gem – smallpdf. Forget settings, forget tutorials… just drag and drop your PDF file and it compresses it for you.
