For example, the actual Excel file reads as being 2.30 MB when looking at it's properties window. The picture I was given to test it out is a JPG file that is 730 KB. Now when I go to insert the picture into the file, save it, and look at the Excel file's properties again, the file has jumped up to 24 MB, and if I insert the picture a second time, the file size becomes 45.8 MB. We need to be able to fit in 3 pictures and still send this file through in an e-mail, but we have a ceiling of around 20-22 MB for our e-mails.
Does anyone know why the file made such a dramatic increase in size from adding in a JPG that is nowhere near that large, or have any ideas on how to go about reducing the size of the file? Thanks.
