There is nothing more annoying then visiting a website to download an important document containing only a few pages and having to wait for a really huge file to be downloaded. This happens a lot on government run websites and happens because the website administrators did not bother to reduce the file size of that document and uploaded a really big file for the headache of everyone. When you distribute a file online, you should make sure that it does not unnecessarily pack extra bytes. One way to ensure this is by compressing the documents and files using a web app called WeCompress.
WeCompress is essentially the online version of a popular desktop software NxPowerLite that we reviewed some time ago. Just like the desktop software, WeCompress can also compress all sorts of documents like Adobe PDF, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and image files (PNG and JPEG). In fact, WeCompress is faster if you want to quickly compress a few documents. On the other hand, if you have sensitive documents containing private information, then you would want to use a local desktop software tool like NxPowerLite.
Using WeCompress is a breeze – all you have to do is visit the WeCompress website, tap/click on the big Add File button and it will instantly run all kinds of optimizations on that file to reduce its size. After a few seconds of compression, you will be shown a Download button so that you can download the compressed file. Along with this download link, it also shows how much the file has been compressed.
WeCompress is a cloud based document compression solution that works blazing fast on all the supported documents or files. But it lacks batch processing of files and you can only compress one file at a time. If you have to compress a dozen files, then you will have to repeat the process a dozen times.
