A beginner-friendly app to compress PDFs, videos & images

Compress PDFs, videos, and images

Perhaps movies and MVs take up much space on your hard drives. Maybe PDFs and images are too large to attach to an email. The internet is flooded with tools to decrease the size of a video, compress an image, or make a PDF smaller. But it's not easy to find one in combination with all compression features above. ApowerCompress comes in handy when you wish to complete these tasks in one piece of software.


ApowerCompress can be easily handled even though you've never used a compression app before. This application helps you compress three file types: video, PDF, and image.

You can make the image and video as small as you want it to be by tweaking the rate of compression with a slider. It's also possible to set the specific compressed size for the video. Besides, ApowerCompress comes packed with a set of advanced settings. You can customize the resolution for the exported image and video. You can adjust the bitrate, sample, and frame rate for the output video. What's more, for the PDF, there are three compression levels to make its size proportional to its quality: "Size", "Normal", and "Quality".

Following are the steps about how to shrink files with ApowerCompress.

It takes around 70 seconds and the new file does not look blurry. A GIF can be compressed from 5MB to 388KB for you to get the best quality. I am fairly satisfied with the results. What do you think?
