Utilizing portable document format can give users many potential benefits.
For example, it allows users to easily preserve the original formatting of their files and make sure that the text and any other additional elements - such as tables, pictures or graphics - remain in their initial positions and stay an integral part of the document.
This type of format also sets itself apart from a security point of view. Files can be easily shared without major concerns over security - since the user can easily lock it with the help of a custom password.
Due to their formatting and quality standards, PDF documents are often pretty “heavy” and take up a lot of space on your hard drive or in the storage of your mobile device. Of course, there is always cloud storage. But extra space usually costs money - money which doesn't need to be spent if you can find the right kind of platform.
So the best way to keep your important information and free up some space is to compress PDF files.
