PDF Image Compression Command Line Format


win2pdfd.exe compress "sourcefile" compressratio "destfile"

win2pdfd.exe compress "sourcefile" compressratio "destfile" favorjeg2000


Re-compress  images using either JPG or JPEG2000. The “compressratio” is a number, usually 10-100 that determines the amount of compression. Win2PDF tries to select the best compression format based on the current document. In the 2nd variation, specifying a "1" in the last parameter "favorjpeg2000" will favor JPEG2000 compression even if it results in a larger PDF.


Any file names that contain spaces must be enclosed with quotation marks. The "sourcefile" can be a local file path, or an web address (URL) to an existing PDF.


This feature requires a licensed version of Win2PDF. Contact us for a time limited evaluation license.


Returns 0 on success, and a Windows system error code on failure.
