Default Images and File Size in Word

Hi all,

I am using Word 2007.

I have a large document with several photos in it. The photos were scanned at a high resolution. The file is becoming so large that it is difficult to edit - long waits after a change is made.

I decided to try to alleviate this problem by down-sizing my photos in Photoshop (Windows Explorer shows that the new photos are indeed smaller), deleting the original photos from my document and inserting the smaller images in their place. Surprisingly when I did this the size of the document increased, not decreased as I expected.

What is happening?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Robert

Hi Robert, I always resize images first in Paint.net to reduce file size.
