It can happen sometimes that you created a Microsoft Word file or may be PDF document that contains a lot of images, or other multimedia content that increased it’s size significantly. This can lead to a number of problems including much more space consumption on the hard disk, problems to send it as an attachment through email. However, there happens to be a nice free software available called PocoDoc that aims to mitigate this issue. PocoDoc is basically a Windows application that recognize many common MS Office documents formats such as PPT, PPTX, DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PDF and allows to optimize them to reduce their size. Actual reduction in size is more dependent on the nature of the document and can vary case to case.
PocoDoc provide a number of optimization levels ranging from 2 to 18, with 18 being the lowest optimization (bigger file size) and 2 being the highest optimization (minimum file size). After performing the optimization PocoDoc also presents a comparison of the file size of the optimized and un-optimized versions of the document.
You can download the PocoDoc for Windows for free from here.
In fact, there is an online version of the application also available from here. Advantage is that you don’t need to download any software. Interface is similar to the free software download that is mentioned above.
