PDF Optimizer is an enhancement to the Adobe PDF Library

PDF Optimizer is an API that works with the Adobe PDF Library to simplify the process of creating a PDF while making an appropriate file for the viewing experience of the user. It reduces the file size while preserving the fidelity of PDF files and requires no expertise to use.

The Adobe PDF Library SDK is a low-level PDF library that contains a powerful set of native C/C++ APIs with interfaces for .NET and Java APIs. Systems integrators, independent software vendors (ISVs), enterprise IT developers, and others can integrate Adobe PDF functionality within custom applications in a client and / or server environment.

The Adobe PDF Library with PDF Optimizer is available on multiple different platforms. The SDK is written as a C/C++ API, and we also provide language interfaces for Java, .NET (C#).
