I am writing assembly procedures using MS Word 2003, and the filese are growing quite large (over 20 MB). The photos that I am inserting are JPEG files, and there are quite a lot of them. Is there a way that I can make my document smaller?

right click on a photo in the document and choose format picture, then press the "compress" button, choose all pictures in the document, if you're wanting HIGH quality printing for this document...then leave it as "for print" otherwise choose the "for web/screen" , the web/screen compression will reduce the size of the pictures the most but will also reduce the printable quality of the image...

Keith,

At this point the issue is not sending documents, but the amount of time it takes to load, refresh, save, etc the documents.

Thanks,

Is it inconvenient to compile the documents as text only with comments such as

Line one of text

(Insert Picture 1 here)

Line two of text

Then replace the comments with the images just before the final save

There doesn't seem to be an obvious way to compress the whole thing but I will have an look
